2016 Toyota Land Cruiser vs. 2016 Volkswagen Touareg Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Touareg than in the Toyota Land Cruiser, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Toyota Land Cruiser and the Volkswagen Touareg.

Convenience
With the Volkswagen Touareg, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Toyota Land Cruiser, 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 Toyota Land Cruiser will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volkswagen Touareg, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Toyota Land Cruiser will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Dimensions
The Toyota Land Cruiser is a little wider than the Volkswagen Touareg, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Toyota Land Cruiser, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Toyota Land Cruiser and the Volkswagen Touareg are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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

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

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

Warranty
The Toyota Land Cruiser comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Touareg.
