Used Volkswagen Touareg for sale
The Volkswagen Touareg is a large family SUV that offers a multitude of safety features alongside a premium interior design.
Sitting at the top of the brand's range of SUVs, the Touareg has been engineered to offer a practical package that's luxurious throughout.
There aren't many competitors offering this level of quality at this price point, but the Touareg doesn't look out of place next to the likes of the BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE, which tells you everything you need to know.
The Touareg makes a compelling used car purchase for the following reasons:
- Sumptuous interior
- Large cabin and boot
- Advanced technology
- Relaxing driving experience
Engines and Driving Experience
The Touareg is an immensely relaxing car to drive thanks to its quiet cabin and supple suspension. It'll happily glide down a motorway, effortlessly soaking up the miles, yet won't batter an eyelid when being driven down a mucky backroad.
Petrol / Hybrid
- 3.0-litre: 335bhp, 0 to 62mph in 5.9 seconds, up to 25.9mpg
- 3.0-litre eHybrid R: 456bhp, 0 to 62mph in 5.1 seconds, up to 123.4mpg
- 3.0-litre: 228bhp, 0 to 62mph in 7.6 seconds, up to 34.8mpg
- 3.0-litre: 282bhp, 0 to 62mph in 6.1 seconds, up to 34.9mpg
All models come with 4MOTION all-wheel drive as standard, which helps the Touareg produce huge levels of grip in a variety of weather conditions.
Practicality and Running Costs
There's a huge amount of room inside the Touareg regardless of whether you're sitting in the front or back. Unfortunately, you can't get the Touareg with seven seats - you'll want an Audi Q7 for that - but it does mean you benefit from a massive 810 litres of boot space.
Because of the raised ride height, wide-opening rear doors and spacious cabin, it's incredibly easy to fit a child's seat using the ISOFIX anchor points. With a braked towing capacity of up to 3,500kg, the Touareg will be more than ample for families who own a horsebox or caravan.
As expected, the Touareg occupies high insurance groups (circa 40 out of 50), which will reflect in your annual premium. However, affordable servicing and maintenance is available through Evans Halshaw retailers to offset the other running costs.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Few cars in this class can match the Touareg's interior for design and quality. The central touchscreen is angled towards the driver for clarity, offering a stunning display that grants convenient access to the media features and vehicle settings. Various driving modes are available, allowing you to tailor the Touareg's behaviour to your mood and driving style.
Equipment levels are excellent across the whole range, with entry-level 'SEL' models benefitting from adaptive cruise control, heated front seats, parking sensors front and rear, and an infotainment system with gesture control. Higher up the range you can expect luxuries such as Park Assist, an electronic boot lid, and 4-zone climate control.
There are a plethora of safety features included as standard, which include:
- 'e-call' Emergency call service
- Tyre pressure warning system
- Driver alert system (fatigue detection)
- Lane keep assist
- Dynamic road sign display
Is the Volkswagen Touareg right for me?
If you're in the market for a large and luxurious SUV for the whole family, then the Volkswagen Touareg makes a compelling used car purchase. The absence of a 7-seat option is a downside, but the potent choice of engines and excellent safety features make up for this.
There are a number of different alternatives to consider before committing to a car. The BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE are the natural rivals for this type of vehicle, but upping your budget would get you behind the wheel of a Range Rover Sport or Volvo XC90.
