Touareg Comparison

An SUV has to be capable. It also has to satisfy its owners and its occupants. This is why we sell the Volkswagen Touareg. The 2015 edition has been revised with a new interior with new details outside and other tweaks underneath for better driving capability. It remains our most capable SUV that gives you the confidence on the road in any conditions and the ability to go away from it.

We know that a lot of people aren’t convinced the Touareg is a worthy SUV against some of the more well-known names. So, we decided to make a comparison for you against some of the more premium SUVs out there – the Mercedes-Benz M-Class and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

As a premium SUV, the Touareg is shown here as split down the middle. But, we have some great advantages – including a diverse lineup including a diesel and a hybrid option, a new set of driver assistance and active safety features and absolute comfort for five. Our towing capacity is the best in this group of six-cylinder two-row mid-sized premium SUVs.

You have plenty of choices to make for your next vehicle. We think you will love the Touareg for what it can do away from your normal routine. If you are ready to tackle the world – come see us for a test drive of the refreshed 2015 Touareg.
