2017 Lexus GX 460 vs. 2016 Volkswagen Touareg Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Lexus GX 460 than the Volkswagen Touareg. The Volkswagen Touareg offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus GX 460, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
With the Volkswagen Touareg, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus GX 460, 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 Lexus GX 460 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. The Lexus GX 460 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus GX 460 is much slimmer than the Volkswagen Touareg, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Lexus GX 460 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Touareg.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Lexus GX 460 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Touareg.

Handling
The Lexus GX 460 has a smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Touareg, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Volkswagen Touareg, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Lexus GX 460. The Lexus GX 460 has a little more horsepower than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Utility
The Lexus GX 460 offers greater seating capacity than the Volkswagen Touareg, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Lexus GX 460 as you will in the Volkswagen Touareg.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lexus GX 460 than that of the Volkswagen Touareg.
