2012 Volkswagen Touareg Overview

Vehicle Overview
Positioned atop the VW lineup, the five-seat Touareg competes with luxury crossovers such as the Lexus RX, Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class and Lincoln MKX. It comes with a choice of three V-6 engines: a traditional gas V-6, a turbocharged diesel V-6 and a V-6 gas-electric hybrid drivetrain.

New for 2012
The Touareg gains a standard six-CD touch-screen stereo system.

The Touareg has a clean separation between its grille and front air dam, with Audi-like LEDs in the headlights and taillights. Exterior features include:
  • Chrome door accents
  • Stylish tailpipes
The Touareg's cabin is fairly conventional. Climate controls fall below a large center display screen, and the steering wheel adopts the same controls as those found in the Golf and GTI. The Touareg's backseat is significantly roomier than the prior generation, and the rear seats fold in one motion. Interior features include:
  • Sliding and reclining backseat
  • 6.5-inch touch-screen stereo
