The 2011 Volkswagen Touareg Review

The Touareg captures the imagination of car enthusiasts when it comes to mid-size luxury vehicles. It’s not an imposing vehicle that turn heads but it’s still an attractive car that can easily rival some of the best in its class. Since its first edition in 2002, it has become a popular car option for those seeking a good looking luxury vehicle without the debilitating price.

The main feature of the 2011 Volkswagen Touareg is the redesign on the exterior and additional engine options. The exterior is now sleeker than its previous predecessor which greatly improves its look. The interior has also seen some forms of improvement as the 2011 version is roomier than its predecessor. The design is also a lot more impressive because of the rugged yet stylish look.

The 2011 version is now available in three engine types: the base engine featuring the VR6 FSI, the TDI-engine for diesel and the hybrid. The hybrid is naturally the most fuel efficient 21/25 mpg. Although the most affordable is the VR6 FSI engine model, the hybrid and diesel versions are better because of fuel efficiency.

The hybrid of the 2011 Volkswagen Touareg is also known for its smooth operation. Car owners of the hybrid Touareg will immediately notice the smooth transition on different power sources. Unfortunately, the smooth transition between power sources could be costly as the base price is at $51,000. The rate is a bit expensive as there are other hybrids in the same category at a better price; it is still competitive as there are other hybrids that cost more than the 2011 Volkswagen Touareg.
