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

By:

By:

PROS
Smooth power delivery
Cheaper and better-equipped than rivals
