2004 Volkswagen Touareg Mid-Size Sport Utility Vehicle


| 3 | 4 | 5 | 6


This vehicle has all the safety features one would expect of a European luxury automaker. There are 6 airbags -- driver and front passenger front and side airbags and a head curtain that runs from the A pillar to the C pillar on both sides. The roof is reinforced to act as a rollbar in the event of a rollover, or protect the passengers should something fall on the vehicle.

Slowing a heavy truck requires special attention. Touareg has 4-wheel, power assisted, antilock, disc brakes. Were glad it has 4-wheel disc brakes because they stop vehicles with less fade. The brakes cool more evenly and drain water quickly for more even braking power over time. The vehicle also has Hydraulic Brake Assist. This system determines the necessary amount of brake pressure for the situation and delivers the appropriate amount it determines whether the vehicle needs to come to a gentle or a panic stop and adjusts the brake pressure.

The Tire Pressure Monitor has both audio and visual warnings, and there is an additional air supply for pumping tires, etc. If you get a Touareg with the standard steel suspension it comes with an electric compressor built into the rear cargo area. If it has the optional Air Suspension then a hose is plugged into an air socket leading directly into the air reservoir. Obviously flat tires can be inflated. But if yore off-roading tires get better traction with lower tire pressure. With the air supply is easy to let air out of the tires for off-roading and then pump them back up when you want to return to the pavement.

In Conclusion

Again, Touareg is a Range Rover for about half the price. It is not quite as luxurious, but the level of luxury is just fine. It is definitely the most luxurious vehicle Volkswagen has ever produced. Touareg, and the upcoming Phaeton sedan, definitely move the brand upscale.

Were concerned that Volkswagen will impinge on the sales of their Audi brand with the introduction of more and more luxurious products. Volkswagen was supposed to be an entry level brand attracting young buyers at an early age. Audi would then keep them through their high-earning years. Now Volkswagen will keep people in their products longer, before they might make the switch. Higher prices mean fewer consumers who can afford to buy within the line. Volkswagen needs to make sure it doest price itself out of the market.

Touareg has to be one of the best SUVs launched by a company without a previous truck line. The product has all the luxury needed. Volkswagen delivered on the on-road performance, competing well with the BMW X5 and the Infiniti FX35 and 45. They have established themselves as standout manufacturers of se...

The SUV from VW is a five-door model with a tight unibody structure. It's sleek in style, large in scale for the mid-size class and provides a spacious cabin with seats for five plus plush appointments. Touareg employs VW's four-wheel-drive (4WD) traction device labeled 4XMotion, which provides uncanny stick-it-down traction for all wheels, plus optional locking rear differential and an air suspension.

Engines contain six, eight or even ten cylinders. For 2006, the base plant is new -- a 3.6-liter VR6 with direct injection and output of 276 hp, which marks a 36-point improvement over the previous 3.2-liter VR6. Optional is a 4.2-liter V8 worth 310 hp or a massive turbo-diesel 5.0-liter V10 that knocks out 310 hp. Touareg V10 TDI also has a six-speed automatic transmission, electronic stabilization program (ESP) and a dev...

Complete Volkswagen Touareg 2 New Car Reviews listed below

The 2008 Volkswagen Touareg 2 is a mid-size luxury sport utility vehicle (SUV) and happens to be one of our favorite vehicles. It is elegant inside and out, and competent both on the road, and off. The Touareg 2 is available in three trim levels. The Touareg 2 VR6 FSI (MSRP $39,320) comes with a 280-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 engine. The Touareg 2 V8 FSI (MSRP $48,320) comes with a 350-horsepower, 4.2-liter V8 engine. The Touareg 2 V10 TDI (MSRP $68,320) comes with a 310-horsepower, 4.9-liter V10 engine. All three trim levels come with an all-wheel drive system, six-speed Tiptronic manual-shift automatic transmission, front and rear anti-roll bars, four-wheel independent suspension, and can be customized with a variety of packages and accessories.

The Touareg 2 competes with the Audi Q7, BMW X5, Infiniti QX56, Lexus GX 470, Land Rover Range Rover, Lincoln Navigator, Mercedes-Benz M-Class, and Porsche Cayenne. The Touareg 2 is definitely equivalent to a Land Rover Range Rover, for around $30,000 less.

The Volkswagen Touareg, the Touareg 2's predecessor, was first released in 2003. It was the first SUV ever produced by the automaker. It was built on the Volkswagen E platform as a joint project between the German automaker and Porsche, and constructed in Bratislava, Slovakia.

The VW Touraeg is an outstanding 4-wheel drive SUV and the version fitted with 310-horsepower, 5.0-liter, V10 turbodiesel is a fabulous vehicle. The engine is a technological marvel. The sound of all those valves at work is reminiscent of a fired-up Panzer tank. And don't let its pretty looks fool you. The Touareg V10 TDI will "Race to the Clouds" at the 85th running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, and also take on the, grueling, Baja 500. It's tough.

And we can vouch for the VW Touareg 2's off-road capabilities as we've driven it in Mojab, Utah, and in the mountains off the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. We were able to drive anywhere that custom off-road vehicles could go. No problem.

Volkswagen Touareg 2 convenience features include speed control, HomeLink garage door transmitter, residual heat circulation, illuminated and remote keyless entry, telescopic and tilt steering wheel, driver vanity mirror, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, and a trip computer. Power features include heated driver and front passenger seats (optional on the Touareg VR6 FSI), moonroof, windows, and trunk release.

Comfort features in the Touareg 2 include split-bench rear seats, leather upholstery (optional on the Touareg VR6 FSI) and steering wheel, genuine wood dashboard, door panel, and console inserts (optional on the Touareg VR6 FSI), adjustable head restraints for the driver an...
