VW Touareg was originally launched some 10 years ago and was a little long in the tooth of late lagging the competition. They have just released the third generation Touareg and Rob Fraser went along to the launch.
The latest model Touareg is a major improvement and my first impressions were overwhelmingly favourable.
Initially available as one model, the Launch Edition, the Touareg is set to shake up the dwindling, yet very competitive Prestige SUV market.
Sharing a number of components and the same platform as the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga, the Touareg is the most technically advanced VW model so far. It is absolutely packed with comfort, luxury and safety features.
Clever buyers, will benefit from a saving of anywhere between $20,000 to over $35,000 and get a vehicle equal to the more “prestige’ brands and the smug self-satisfaction knowing you could have an overseas holiday from the money you saved.
