Benefits of Driving a 2012 Volkswagen Touareg Sport Utility

Hybrids and off-roading rarely are available in the same package, so the segment is not very broad. The Volkswagen Touareg hybrid provides a way to reduce one's environmental footprint and still enjoy off-road capability for $8,000 cheaper than a Porsche Cayenne.

What's new for 2012?

The 2012 Touareg is virtually unchanged from the 2011 model.

Model Strengths

  • Diesel, hybrid, and gasoline engine options
  • 8-speed transmission and all-wheel drive
  • improved interior insulation and acoustics

Model Review

The 2012 Touareg hasn't changed from last year, including Volkswagen's excellent engine lineup. A 280-hp 3.6L V6 gasoline engine powers the base Sport, Lux and Exec Touareg and gets 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway.
