There is only one powertrain setup for the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg, a 3.6-liter, V-6 engine making 280 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed transmission sends power to all four wheels via the crossover SUV’s all-wheel drive system. Fuel economy scores for the 2017 Touareg are about average for this class of the automotive community. Owners can expect to see fuel scores of 17 miles per gallon in the city and 23 miles per gallon on the highway.
In addition to a powerful engine, the very shape of the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg makes it well-suited to cargo hauling. With the second row of seats deployed for passengers, there is still more than 30 cubic-feet of space to use. Stowing those seats away makes more than twice that amount of space available. In terms of towing, the 2017 Touareg has few real rivals. When properly equipped the VW crossover SUV will be able to pull loads weighing more than 7,700 pounds.
There is no disputing the fact that the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg has one of the most enviable interiors in the entire crossover SUV class. Even its entry-level trims offer a premium V-Tex vinyl upholstery that could easily be mistaken for something more expensive. Upper trims like the new Wolfsburg Edition and Executive offer leather upholstery. On a technology front, the 2017 VW Touareg offers outstanding features like satellite radio, smartphone integration and a proprietary digital media input. Active safety systems are also available.
