2014 Toyota Sequoia vs. 2014 Volkswagen Touareg Review

Comparison Review

The Toyota Sequoia offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volkswagen Touareg, with comparable head- and legroom. The Volkswagen Touareg will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Sequoia.

Convenience

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 Toyota Sequoia 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 Toyota Sequoia will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volkswagen Touareg.

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

Handling
The Toyota Sequoia 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 Toyota Sequoia. When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota Sequoia greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Touareg.

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