Benefits of Driving a 2013 Volkswagen Touareg Sport Utility

The Touareg doesn't offer a third row of seating, but it's one of the roomiest, most comfortable vehicles with seating for five, with a luxurious cabin and a smooth, quiet ride. In plush Executive versions with the awesome Dynaudio sound system, the Touareg is equipped and trimmed more as a luxury vehicle than as a Volkswagen.
