VW Touareg was first launched some 10 years ago and while it had updates over the years, the last iteration became a little dated and tired.

Just launched, the third generation Touareg range starts with a special launch edition that represents outstanding value compared to its closest rivals.

At $89,990 Volkswagen’s new Touareg Launch Edition beats the old model for value. Yes, really … Volkswagen’s long anticipated new Touareg Launch Edition SUV is in showrooms the first week in June with more power, luxury and equipment and vastly more advanced technology than the comparable outgoing model.

And the new one costs almost a grand less than the old one. The Launch Edition’s recommended retail price of $89,990 comes in $900 under the asking price for the previous generation Touareg 180TDI when equipped with Driver Assistant pack. Yet the new Touareg Launch Edition carries a host of advantages over its well-regarded predecessor:
