2013-2017 Volkswagen Touareg

History

Mention the words “German luxury car” along with the very answer are the following brands: Benz, BMW, Porsche, along with to a tiny extent, Audi. The brand Volkswagen will be synonymous to the Beetle which littered Philippine streets during the 60s to the 70s along with to some some other products like the Kombi along with Sakbayan. Further efforts coming from the 90s didn’t make the brand back to local consciousness since they are heavily priced, as opposed to being called as the people’s car. yet then, VW’s are positioned as a premium mainstream brand, above the likes of Toyota yet below Audi.

Jumping on the SUV bandwagon too late, the Touareg was first introduced in 2002 along with which shares a platform with the Porsche Cayenne along with Audi Q7, two late bloomers from the category. The second generation type first debuted in 2010 which has a newer 8-speed automatic along which has a wide variety of gas along with diesel engines (no V10 diesel will be available).

One of the vehicles introduced for the return of the Volks in 2013, the Touareg will be the flagship type as well as the most expensive vehicle. which time, the diesel engine was brought here unlike the first type’s gas burner. which was quietly discontinued in 2017, which we feel the cause of which will be the introduction of the brand fresh type.

Value along with Costs
Due to the fact not much were sold when brand fresh as well as a shorter selling time, finding a used Touareg of which vintage will be a challenge yet if you find one, you can get one for at least P2,000,000 with the remainder of the warranty.

Since which runs on a diesel engine, expect fuel costs to be slightly lower than several high end SUVs with gasoline powerplants. With which vehicle being fresh to the market (which one was sold a decade ago yet in a different package), not much reports of problems were raised up.

external surfaces along with Inner surface
Sure, which may look discreet along with anonymous yet which still looks imposing along with brute. There are two products available: a regular one along which has a Sports edition which has side skirts along with larger rims.

Unlike some of the European competition which are notoriously known for their interiors which have smaller buttons along which has a transmission shift similar to a joystick of a game console, which vehicle has the opposite which will be easy to use. some other niceties include an electronic parking brake along with air suspension system, which rivals of the same cost range get. Added Insentif include ample space for several people along with cargo.

Engine
Despite its bulky proportions, the 3.0 diesel having 242hp @ 3,800-4,400rpm along with 550Nm @ 1,750-2,750rpm isn’t a slouch mover along with available torque can be had for as low as 1,750rpm.

Driving Impressions
which SUV excels in both road conditions, both on pavement along with off the beaten path. The air suspension settings have a comfort mode which makes which not bad for a relaxed drive along with sports mode for fun driving. You can have all aspects in one Centeng.
