Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

The Cars.com staff walks you through their Top 10 Tailgating Features.

Vehicle Overview
Volkswagen arrived late to the SUV party when it launched the Touareg (pronounced “TOUR-egg”) for 2004, but brought to market a vehicle designed for difficult off-roading. Electronically controlled 4XMotion permanent four-wheel drive includes offroad gearing. Up to 100 percent of the engine’s power can be sent to either the front or rear wheels. Offroad helpers include Hill Climb Assist, Hill Descent Assist and a locking center differential.

Newly available V-6 and V-8 engines make more horsepower and torque than their predecessors, and a diesel V-10 is also available. New options include a power liftgate, keyless start, adaptive bi-xenon headlights and an iPod adapter.

Exterior
The Touareg’s unibody structure makes it more carlike in appearance than many SUVs. The hood wraps down to a horizontal-bar grille. Rounded body shoulders and sculpted wheel arches complement short overhangs. Silver roof rails are standard on all trims.

Built on a 112.4-inch wheelbase, the Touareg stands 68 inches tall. Ground clearance can reach 11.8 inches with the optional air suspension, and wading depth is 22.8 inches. The Touareg can drive at a 35-degree lateral offset angle and has a 45-degree side-tipping angle. Alloy wheels are available in 17-, 18- and 19-inch diameters, and Touaregs can be equipped with an optional rear spare-tire carrier.

Interior
Trimmed in burl wood, chrome and aluminum, the luxurious five-occupant interior includes standard dual-...

Under the Hood
For 2007, the new 3.6-liter V-6 makes 276 hp and 265 pounds-feet of torque, while the new 4.2-liter V-8 generates 350 hp and 325 pounds-feet of torque. The turbo-diesel, 5.0-liter V-10’s output is unchanged at 310 hp and 553 pounds-feet of torque, but the engine gains emissions-reducing technology. All engines team with a six-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission.

Safety
Side-impact and side curtain airbags are installed. Antilock brakes, traction control and an electronic stability system are standard.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
