Driven by Devin – 2016 VW Touareg Lux


“…handsome appointments, a roomy interior, refined road manners, and all-around usefulness give it strong appeal nevertheless” -Car and Driver.

The Volkswagen Touareg is the finest of VW’s luxury craftsmanship, built for utility and comfort. You may have seen the Touareg featured in videos such as towing a Boeing 747 jet plane with its past V10 TDI beast of an engine (which we wish was still made) and astonishing towing capability or tearing it up in the desert (there is a separate rally version of the Touareg, known as the Race Touareg). The Touareg is the SUV you want if you are looking for luxury, versatility, and towing capability.

Touaregs are powered by a 3.6L Vr6 engine capable of 280hp combined with 4Motion AWD technology and a 8-speed automatic Tiptronic trans. You get a choice of nine exterior colors to pair with five interior colors.

There is a Touareg for all tastes and prices with its five different trim levels: Sport, Sport with Tech, Technology, Lux, and Executive.

Leather interiors are standard in every trim, along with power heated seats, Bi-Xenon automatic headlights w/ Adaptive Front-light System, multifunction steering wheel, Bluetooth, Remote power rear liftgate w/ power latching, Automatic, rain-sensing, variable intermittent front wipers w/ heated washer nozzles, Homelink, among various others and safety features.


This model featured here is a Lux in Pure White over a Terracotta Brown leather interior.

The Touareg is a nice drive with low road noise, good acceleration and braking, nice handling, and curb appeal.

Sitting in the Touareg is quite comfortable, and it has a simple yet refined appearance. The burl walnut trim in this Touareg eye pleasing, pairing with the Terracotta Brown leather. Heated and ventilated seats, 14-way power adjustable comfort seats w/ power lumbar support & driver memory, and a heated steering wheel offer comfort for any weather.
