KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 11/4/2013


Unless you know your nomadic North African tribes, the Touareg's name won't mean much to you. However, once you learn what this 5-passenger SUV can do you'll be singing its praises, goofy name and all. A rigid body paired with a sophisticated all-wheel-drive (AWD) system (in this case VW's 4Motion) makes the Touareg a formidable off-road explorer while its broad engine choices offer power, economy and technology unavailable on most domestic competitors. Be it the torque-happy turbodiesel or the lightning-quick hybrid, the Touareg will get you where you want and do it in record time. With six possible trim/model combinations from which to choose, it's hard to imagine anyone willing to drop $40K or more will find much to quibble about in the Touareg.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're seeking a credible SUV that can tow and participate in light off-roading, but you want that same vehicle to be civilized and fuel-efficient when it's on the road, the 2014 VW Touareg makes an excellent choice.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you need massive cargo and passenger space, or just need to tow more than 7,700 pounds, a full-size SUV such as the Ford Expedition or Nissan Armada is a better choice. A Jeep Grand Cherokee is equally comfortable and capable, but costs a lot less.

What's New for 2014

For 2014, VW adds a new R-Line trim to the Touareg family, bringing unique interior and exterior features, 20-inch alloy wheels and a sport suspension. A new 360-degree Area View monitor and hands-free, easy-open tailgate are made available on all but the R-Line and Sport trims.

Driving It Driving Impressions

No matter which VW powertrain motivates the 2014 Touareg SUV, it will be hooked up to an 8-speed automatic transmission sending power to all four wheels via the 4Motion AWD system. Because the Touareg's platform was developed in conjunction with Audi and Porsche the level of handling and ride compliance dwarfs that of most big SUVs, a remarkable achievement considering the Touareg's relatively moderate sticker price. With the 3.6-liter VR6 under the hood, the Touareg feels refined, responsive and nimble. But, once you've experienced the adrenaline rush from the turbodiesel, or the amazingly quick Hybrid, you'll likely find the VR6 is suddenly wanting. On the road, the Touareg demonstrates strong brakes, communicative steering and a firm yet comfortable ride. For pure driving enjoyment, we think the Jeep Grand Cherokee comes close, but the VW still has the upper hand.

Favorite Features

AREA VIEW MONITOR
This clever system uses cameras at the front, back and under the two side mirrors to create a 360-degree image helping to reduce blind spots and potential accidents.

10-YEAR/100,000-MILE POWERTRAIN WARRANTY
To overcome a perceived gap in its reliability record, VW backs every Touareg engine with a 10-year/100,000-mile warranty, including the Hybrid. The rest of the vehicle gets a 3-year/36,000-mile comprehensive warranty.
