The 2020 Volkswagen Touareg V8 TDI is expensive, but it also has a very special diesel V-8 under the hood.

Pros
Fast enough for the autobahn,
diesel efficiency,
premium-brand levels of luxury and refinement.

Cons
Garish chrome grille; an Alcantara headliner would be nice;
we'd love to have it here,
but it's premium-brand money.

Comfy for five
More daring than dull...

...Edgy styling can be a turn off
Useless third row
Getting expensive
