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.

The heart of the new Cayenne E-Hybrid plug-in is its powertrain, which follows a now familiar recipe: Take the root model’s engine and transmission—in this case a turbo 3.0-liter V-6 from the Cayenne tuned to 335 horsepower—then add a big battery and an electric motor.

Pros
A hybrid that tows 7716 pounds,
smooth transitions from electric to gas and back.

Cons
So nice that Porsche might become a company known more for hybrids than sports cars.

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne twists performance DNA with a strand of off-road talent, and bridges the gap between “Porsche” and “SUV” perfectly.

Pros
Yes, performance; yes, SUV
Smart interior ditches pounds of buttons
All the custom touches
Five adults fit, no problem

Cons
Tech wizardry aside, still a big SUV
Ride, steering can be too stiff
Oh wow, check out the prices
