The ultimate but reasonably sized SUV. Good engineering and great looks. by Jose. on 02/23/2012. Trim: 2009 Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Turbo diesel economy and speed. Very comfortable.
Cons: The Touareg needs stronger bumpers front and rear. It is really too good looking for off-road use although traction and gears are great for muddy and icy roads.
Overall review: My 2009 Touareg is the best SUV I've owned. It is the most comfortable. The rear flat surface is reduced by the head rests when flat, but then again, this is not really an off-road working vehicle but an elegant large and roomy vehicle perfect for bad weather.

An Honest All Purpose Vehicle by George on 05/31/2014. Trim: 2009 Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI, Owned 5 years.
Pros: The Touareg (TDI) handles like a huge luxury sport sedan. (I previously drove Audi A6 S-line 2.7T.) Excellent turning radius, very good braking power, very smooth, grounded and quiet ride. Very acceptable standard audio system. Very decent highway MPG. I love how the high-beam headlights move in the direction you are steering -- so you can see into the turn. Like the Audi, the Touareg is equipped with a zillion creature comfort features like fully illuminated dash and instrument controls, dash box cooler for drinks sandwiches, tire pressure warning, rearview camera, 12-way power seats, DVD player, 20GB hard drive for music storage, auto-speed control windshield wipers and on and on.
Cons: Not great MPG in stop-and-go city driving. Just a tad cramped driver entry for tall people - but ample room once inside. Passenger seats a bit stiff and too erect (2009 model) but has been improved on newer model year.
Overall review: The 2009 Touareg is an honest off-road capable SUV that can take you to the Symphony one night and to your favorite mountain retreat the next day. It's my "APV" (All Purpose Vehicle).
