VW Touareg 190 TDi 2020 Radio Review

VW Touareg 190 TDi

Luxury SUVs are becoming more popular and the VW Touareg is set to shake up some more prestigious brands.

Sharing the same platform as the Bentley Bentayga, Lamborghini Urus, Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q8, the Touraeg punches way above its weight.

I drove the entry level 190TDi version with no options. This is a V6 turbo diesel engine that drives all four wheels through VW 4Motion drive and a smooth 8 SPEED transmission

I have to admit I am a fan of the Touareg. It makes a relaxing daily driver, comfortable long distance tourer and is surprisingly capable off road. I’ve driven it on the beach, which is a breeze, on light forest tracks, fire trails and some more adventurous excursions and it performs effortlessly.

It’s ideal for the snow trips and family holidays. For the grey nomads or horse brigade It’s also a fantastic towing vehicle with a 35 t capacity.

Priced from just under $81,000 plus the usual costs, the Touareg is absolutely worth a drive. You can buy a Touareg and take an extended holiday with the money you save.
