Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The original Volkswagen Touareg was famous for offering a 5.0-litre V10 diesel engine that made it one of the most powerful models in its class.

Pros
Good value
Copes well in the mud
Smart interior

Cons
Depreciation worries
Hybrid isn’t economical
Can’t carry seven

The VW Touareg has been a constant for Volkswagen since 2003. It was the firm’s very first off-roader, and paved the way for the now four-strong SUV line-up. However, with the current car more than eight years old, VW thought it high time the mainstay was given a complete overhaul.
So, for 2018, the Touareg is new from the ground up. It is 77mm longer and 44mm wider than before, and it sits on the VW Group’s flagship MLBevo platform. That means it shares many of its internals with cars such as the Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne, as well as high-end models like the Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini Urus.

A reshuffling of features marks the 2019 model year for the Q7. All models now come with navigation, while mid-range Premium Plus trims now offer Audi's Virtual Cockpit digital gauge cluster, a 360-degree exterior camera system, LED head- and taillights, and a wireless smartphone charging pad as standard. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are now part of the Convenience package on all Q7 models. The optional 20-inch wheels now come with all-season run-flat tires and two new 21-inch wheel designs are now available.

PROS
Back-road athleticism,
beautiful and high-tech cabin,
three-row versatility.

CONS
Pricey with extras,
snug third row,
subtle styling gets lost in parking lots.
