Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

PROS
PHEV drivetrain enables limited electric running at speeds up to 135km/h
Excellent blend of everyday comfort, refinement and performance
3500kg towing capacity
It shares its drivetrain with the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid

CONS
PHEV drivetrain adds handsomely to the weight
Li-ion battery robs 70L of boot space
Lacks the traditional hardened performance focus for which Volkswagen R models are renowned

“A curious mix of speed and efficiency with a big dollop of comfort. It's just not especially fun ”

PROS
Comfy,
plush,
quick and a company car bargain

CONS
Not as nimble as a Cayenne

By: 
topgear.com

The VW Touareg R is comfortable, well-equipped and effortless to drive, but not sharp or engaging enough to be considered a true sports SUV. That leaves it in somewhat of a no man’s land. Put simply, those looking for a fast yet relatively frugal sports SUV would be better served by the similarly priced Porsche Cayenne e-Hybrid, while those wanting a luxurious and well-rounded plug-in hybrid luxury SUV would be better off with the BMW X5 xDrive45e.

PROS
Well-equipped
Spacious inside for up to five people
Very quiet in electric mode

CONS
Cheap-feeling interior
Fussy infotainment system
Not very exciting to drive

The 2020 Dodge Durango takes on family crossover SUVs with brute strength, and some old-school compromises.

Pros
Tough truck looks
Muscle car performance
High-quality interior
High-capacity cabin
Hilarious Durango SRT

Cons
Old-school safety scores
Poor fuel economy
Stiff ride at times
Showing its age

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The Durango is almost entirely unchanged for 2020, but the R/T trim sees some minute equipment updates, including a new Hemi fender badge for models with the Blacktop and Brass Monkey packages, a faux-suede headliner and accent stitching on the instrument panel for cars with the Premium interior package, and a new 20-inch wheel design.

Pros
Bold design, high tow ratings, V-8 is quick off the line.

Cons
Third row is only optional, aging platform, thirsty engines.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2020 Dodge Durango comes with all wheel drive, and rear wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.No significant changes for 2020.

Pros
Large touchscreen tech interface is one of the best in class
Strong V8 power provides exceptional towing ability
Has real off-road capabilities with 4WD and low-range gearing

Cons
Fuel economy is below-average, especially with the V8
Bigger and bulkier to drive than rival crossover SUVs
