The VW Touareg is the German automaker’s flagship SUV for the Indian market. Based on the PL71 platform which also underpins the Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne, it has been on sale since late 2002 and was one of the first full size luxury crossover vehicles in the world. It has been on sale in the Indian market since late 2008 but was discontinued after the 2012 update.

Exterior

The VW Touareg is a full-sized SUV that has been designed to bedriven like a car but has all the pedigree to be a proper off-roader. It gets the standard VW face which includes the two-piece chrome grille with black mesh grille in the back. It gets the prominent VW logo also in chrome. The headlights are very similar to ones found on the Polo and Vento but have LED inserts which are to give the car daytime running lights. It also gets fog lamps and a silver bash plate which adds to the butch appearance of the car.

On the side, the VW Touareg, retains the same shape that the SUV was launched with 12 years ago. The appearance is boxy but thanks to the flared wheel arches,the Touareg gets a squat stance giving the impression that it will always remain well planted on the ground. The silver cladding extended to the side adds to the butch appearance of the car. The roofline tapers down towards the D-pillar and flows into the tail lamp assembly while the roof rails add some amount of practicality to the Touareg’s appearance.

The rear end of the Touareg is dominated by the wrap around tail lamps and quad shaped dual exhausts which add to the SUV’s overt premium appeal. The light assembly includes LED strips for the reversing lights and have very subtle chrome outlines. There is a large metal chrome strip between the boot door and the edge of the bumper and this appears to be a step for the loading bay which makes it easier to put heavy items into the vehicle. The number plate holder is on the boot door while the high mounted stop lamp (also an LED unit) has been fitted inside the vehicle.

Interiors

The VW Touareg is a luxury SUV and this isreflected in the amount of kit offered in the SUV. On the inside, this SUV gets features like leather-lined dashboard and upholstery, a quad zone automatic climate control system, multimedia stereo system with a 6 CD changer, Bluetooth compatibility, voice activated controls and cruise control.

The safety features of the Touareg include ABS, ESP, Airbags, Electronic Differential Lock, ASR and Hill Hold Control assist. However, the Touareg lacks an essential feature which is that unlike its contemporaries, it is five-seater only. While this may reduce its seating capacity, it does on the other hand give it much more boot space.

Engine

The VW Touareg in India is offered with a single engine option and this a 3.0-litre V6 diesel that produces 242bhp and 550Nm of torque. Power is transmitted to all four wheels via an eight-speed AT box and a four-wheel drive system.

Competition

The VW Touareg competes in the Indian market with Audi Q7 and the BMW X3 in the mid-level luxury segment.
