Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

AS you’d ex­pect of Volk­swa­gen’s most lux­u­ri­ous SUV, the Touareg is an im­pres­sive ma­chine. It shares its ba­sic ar­chi­tec­ture with the old Porsche Cayenne, but has been tuned to de­liver a more re­lax­ing drive.

Only one en­gine is of­fered: a V6 diesel with ei­ther 201bhp or 258bhp, linked to a smooth auto box. Just be warned that un­like ri­vals such as the Audi Q7, the Touareg is not avail­able with seven seats.

Price range: £45,295-£51,255 Our pick: 3.0 V6 TDI R-line (£50,095) En­gine: 3.0-litre V6 diesel, 258bhp Trans­mis­sion: 8-spd Tip­tronic auto, per­ma­nent 4WD Top speed: 140mph Econ­omy: 41.5mpg CO2: 180g/km
