About Volkswagen Touareg

Having made a name for itself in the luxury SUV segment for those willing to look beyond the non-premium Volkswagen badge, Volkswagen Touareg has been built by a German multinational automotive manufacturing company Volkswagen AG, also known internationally as Volkswagen Group since 2002 as a full-size luxury crossover Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). Originally introduced as joint venture project developed by Volkswagen Group, Audi and Porsche, Touareg follows the trend of favoring on-pavement comfort and drivability rather than rugged, off-road personality. Competing against the Volvo XC90, Land Rover Range Rover Sport and Lincoln MKT, Touareg was Motor Trend Magazine's SUV of the Year for 2004. Now, Touareg is in its second generation.
The first-generation Volkswagen Touareg was produced from 2002 to 2012 but made its debut for the 2004 model year. It was offered in only one body style, 5-door wagon and came in base and TDI trim levels. During this generation, Volkswagen Touareg was powered by 3.2 L V6 rated at 220 hp, 4.2 L V8 producing 310 horsepower as well as 5.0 L V10 making 310 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque, which was replaced by a V6 TDI generating 221 hp and 407 lb-ft of torque. The current Touareg arrived fully redesigned in 2011 with a new focus on on-road driving dynamics and fuel efficiency. It originally came in Sport, Lux, Executive and Hybrid trim levels but now it has Sport w/Technology, Wolfsburg Edition and Executive. Now, Touareg gets power from 3.0 L, 3.6 L, and 4.2 L V6 as well as V6 and V8 TDI engines and engines send power through an 8-speed automatic transmission to four wheels.
