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.

For 2018, the Land Rover Discovery comes standard with frontal collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking. Additionally, the Td6 diesel engine is now available on all three trim levels.The Land Rover Discovery has a relatively simple lineup of three trim levels, and we recommend the midlevel HSE.

PROS
Smooth driving manners on the road
Above-average capabilities off-road
Interior is luxurious with excellent materials
Clever features in terms of utility and technology

CONS
