2013 Land Rover LR4 vs. 2014 Volkswagen Touareg Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Land Rover LR4 than in the Volkswagen Touareg. The Land Rover LR4 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 Land Rover LR4, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Land Rover LR4 will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. Both the Land Rover LR4 and the Volkswagen Touareg have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Land Rover LR4 is a little narrower than the Volkswagen Touareg, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Land Rover LR4 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Touareg.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Land Rover LR4 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Handling
The Land Rover LR4 has a smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Touareg, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Land Rover LR4 will do just as well as the Volkswagen Touareg, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Land Rover LR4 greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Touareg.

Utility
The Land Rover LR4 offers greater seating capacity than the Volkswagen Touareg, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Land Rover LR4, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Land Rover LR4 than that of the Volkswagen Touareg.
