Powerful Performance Built For Colorado-VW Touareg
What makes the 2013 Volkswagen Touareg the ideal SUV for Colorado driver is because all Volkswagen Touareg’s come standard with and eight-speed automatic transmission and AWD. Three engine choices are available which include: Base versions get a conventional gasoline V-6–a 3.6-liter, 280-horsepower narrow-angle V-6 (VR6)–while two other versions show the way toward both more power and better gas mileage, albeit at a premium.
The diesel engine is a gem. Diesel engines generally are slow to heat up, but even on those cold Colorado mornings, you will have no trouble getting your Touareg warmed up and running smoothly. The clean-diesel 3.0-liter V-6 TDI has become one of our favorites, powerful torque 407 lb-ft and its confident feel for towing (up to 7,700 pounds) or highway cruising. And for 2013 a new version of this engine steps up to 240 hp and even better fuel efficiency.
The interior is first class. As with the last Touareg, the most recent version shares its platform with the Porsche Cayenne, which is stronger and sportier. The Volkswagen version nevertheless, appears to equal, or maybe get the best of, its Porsche cousin with internal decor and execution. In our Lux model, the leather was sumptuous, the wood and metal trim looked rich and nearly any surface in reach used soft-to-the-touch plastics. Controls are a jumbled bag. We managed to naturally operate core functions like lights, wipers and the dual-zone automated climate control system. We were also impressed with how swiftly the Touareg warmed when the temperature was in the single digits. The heated seats helped. Adults will fit front and rear.
The back seats can be changed for more passenger or load room. They also are split and fold, though they don’t quite form a flat floor. Load room is sufficient and a bit smaller compared to before, but the compartment is wonderfully finished. Based totally on its performance and design, the new Denver Touareg should give many premium sport and crossover use autos a run for the money.But when my man Jim and I reviewed the diesel- powered Volkswagen Touareg, we received 24.6 miles per gallon around city during 2 snowstorms. On the road we received close to twenty-nine mpg.
The Volkswagen Touareg has an average rating of 8/10 by owners and reviewers. We honestly think that it deserves 10/10 for its class because it is by far one of the best luxury SUV’s on the market.
