2017 Volkswagen Touareg

A year after the hybrid powertrain was put out to pasture, the once-loved diesel option is gone, too, in the wake of VW's scandal. Base models get active safety features and driving aids like active cruise control, automatic emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring. The mid-trim Wolfsburg model replaces the Lux trim.

2016 Volkswagen Touareg

Changes to the 2016 VW Touareg crossover SUV are limited to some added features. Lux and Executive models gain 14-way-power ventilated front seats, while the Executive gains as standard a power tilt wheel and the Driver Assist package. The hybrid model is dropped.

2015 Volkswagen Touareg

The 2015 VW Touareg adds a slight revision to the front and rear styling, new taillights, and revised wheel designs. More importantly, it finally gets driver-assist technology like adaptive cruise control, lane assist, collision warning with automatic braking, and blind-spot detection. The sporty R Line is dropped.

About Volkswagen Touareg

The 2017 Volkswagen Touareg is the German brand's flagship SUV, but its $50,000 starting price makes it as awkward a fit in its segment as its name is to pronounce (try "tour-egg"). Ostensibly this 5-passenger SUV is more luxurious than a Ford Edge or Jeep Grand Cherokee but not quite as fancy as a BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE or even its cousins the Audi Q5 and Q7, and Porsche Cayenne. In reality, we'd recommend just about any competitor over the Touareg. This VW SUV has much going against it beyond a high price and aging platform. The Touareg's brightest aspect -- a strong and efficient diesel engine -- is gone due to VW's emissions-cheating scandal, leaving a tired and overburdened V6 as its only motivation.
