2016 GMC Yukon vs. 2016 Volkswagen Touareg Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Yukon than in the Volkswagen Touareg. The GMC Yukon will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Convenience
With the Volkswagen Touareg, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the GMC Yukon, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The GMC Yukon is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Touareg. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the GMC Yukon is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Touareg.

Dimensions
Since the GMC Yukon is much wider than the Volkswagen Touareg, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the GMC Yukon, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volkswagen Touareg.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the GMC Yukon doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Touareg.

Handling
The GMC Yukon has the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Touareg, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the GMC Yukon, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Volkswagen Touareg. When it comes to horsepower, the GMC Yukon greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Touareg.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the GMC Yukon more than the Volkswagen Touareg, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the GMC Yukon, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Warranty
The GMC Yukon comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Touareg.
