2006 Touareg Overview

The Volkswagen Touareg is luxurious and comfortable.It's more practical than the BMW X5 and offers better off-road capability than the BMW or the Volvo XC 90 or most other midsize sport utilities.

On the highway, the Touareg offers a firm but reasonably smooth ride, though opting for the 19-inch wheels incurs some road vibration and noise.The Touareg (pronounced 'TORE-egg') is no sports sedan, but its handling is responsive given its 5,000-pound mass.

The V8 model offers good acceleration performance, boasting 310 horsepower from the 4.2-liter V8 engine.The 3.2-liter V6 that has been used in the base model lacked the power to motivate this heavy vehicle, but a new 3.6-liter V6 is being introduced midway through the model year that promises much more power.Also available late in the model year is a powerful 5.0-liter V10 diesel engine that was not available for part of the 2005 and 2006 model years.

All models come with wonderful six-speed automatic that smoothly selects exactly the right gear for every situation.Also standard is Volkswagen's superb 4Motion permanent all-wheel-drive system.

The most surprising aspect of the Touareg is its stellar off-road capability.The Touareg can go just about anywhere a Jeep or Range Rover can go.Its all-wheel-drive and traction-control systems automatically apportion power to the wheels with the best grip, providing better traction and requiring less skill from the driver.Another point of credibility is the Touareg's 7,700-pound towing capability.

Its cabin is sophisticated and refined, with rich interior appointments and keen attention to detail.The controls are easy to use.The seats are firm firm, supportive and comfortable.The Touareg seats five, and there is no third row of seats available.
