Volkswagen Touareg 2017

The 2017 Volkswagen Touareg range of configurations is currently priced from $31,999. Our most recent review of the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg resulted in a score of 7.4 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Contributing journalist Andrew Chesterton had this to say at the time: Yes, it's getting on a bit, and if you're one of those people in the queue for a new iPhone every year you'll find the technology a little frustrating. But as far as big, practical and powerful SUVs go, the Touareg Adventure has still got plenty to offer.

This is what Andrew Chesterton liked most about this particular version of the Volkswagen Touareg: Plenty of space, Still looks good, Torque-rich V6 engine

The 2017 Volkswagen Touareg carries a braked towing capacity of up to 3500 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Volkswagen Touareg 2017 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Touareg here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What do you recommend for towing a horse trailer and large draft-horse?

    None of the vehicles you’ve listed are exactly low-maintenance units. They all have complex all-wheel-drive drivelines (which will be appreciated when towing a heavy trailer across a wet showground) and they use the latest common-rail diesel technology which is fairly intolerant of poor servicing.

    As for a power tailgate on a ute, I’m afraid you’re out of luck. But some of the wagon versions of these vehicles can be optioned with powered tailgates. The catch there is that these vehicles use coil sprung rear axles (as opposed to the leaf-sprung ute versions) so they’re not as adept at towing. The Toyota Fortuner, for instance can’t match the HiLux’s 3.5-tonne limit and makes do with 2800kg; not enough for your requirements. The Ford Everest (based on the Ranger) is a little better at 3000kg, but still trails the Ranger’s 3500kg towing capacity and is right on your self-imposed minimum.

  • What car should I buy for $70,000?

    You’ve pretty much covered the field there, so it should come down to what you want from your car. Do you want comfort, safety, fuel efficiency, offroad capability, cabin space? If you are mostly driving on the highway, then a diesel SUV is probably the best bet. I would rule out a dual-cab ute because of comfort, unless you need the flexibility a ute gives you. I would rule out a hybrid, they’re not at their most efficient on the highway; they’re better suited to town use. Based on your annual mileage I wouldn’t keep the car any more than 3-4 years, that way you’ll have a decent resale value when you get out of it.

  • Why is my 2015 Volkswagen Touareg oversteering?

    We haven’t heard of similar problems with the Touareg. The tyres are the obvious starting point. Have you changed them? If so the new tyres could have changed the behaviour of the vehicle. If not, try running the pressures a little higher than VW recommends and see what affect that has. If that doesn’t work, check the shock absorbers to see that they are working correctly, and suspension bushes for wear. As it’s under warranty the dealer should check it for you.
