Volkswagen Touareg is excellent sales figures, it is one third of VWs sold at the start of the year. The second-gen Volkswagen Touareg is very impressive is 2011 model.

As a vision for the off-road capable SUV, 2011 Volkswagen Touareg is roomier, more powerful, more efficient, more lighter and more expensive vehicle. It will be upwards of 400 pounds lighter in some trims—base models will be 460 pounds lighter. With the cleanness and quality backseat to its four-wheel drive system, so you can do a bang-up job of getting me around.

In my opinion, there is no mistaking 2011 Volkswagen Touareg for the large SUV it is. With slightly longer 1.6 inch and wider 0.5 inch than the first generation. The extra length is mostly in the wheelbase, and this improves the rear seat leg room. The sliding rear seat is more spacious than before, still with seating for five.

Exterior, the front is a narrower grille opening that connects to the trapezoidal headlight housings that carry U-shaped LED running lights and Bi-Xenon High Intensity Gas-Discharged headlamps. The housings flow into a pair of compact fog lamps at the lower portion of the front fascia stand underneath the Touareg’s front air intakes. The back of the Touareg is defined with pronounced curves around the hatch area, new “L-Design” taillights, and a blacked out lower bumper with a set of shaped, chrome exhaust tips.

The hood features a raised portion that runs from the grille back, finishing at the side mirrors and giving a more muscular appearance. A chrome accent strip carries from behind the front wheels, and runs along the bottom of the doors to complement the chrome touches bordering the windows.

The interior of 2011 Volkswagen Touareg is nice, all Touaregs get convenience features like dual climate control, an iPod adapter, cruise control, Bluetooth hands-free, heated seats, rain-sensing wipers, a rear-view camera, ABS and stability control, which makes it a true foul-weather friend. The 6.5-inch touchscreen DVD system, which will be standard in the U.S., is easy to navigate and has a 3-D view with major landmarks built in. A 60-GB hard drive has 18 GB set aside for you to download your media.

The engine is equiped with a conventional gasoline V-6 (3.6-liter, 280-horsepower) unit, the clean-diesel 3.0-liter V-6 TDI that makes 225 horsepower, and then the new Hybrid, which combines a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 with an electric traction motor for total power of 380 horsepower. The top engine in the Touareg lineup in both Europe and the U.S. is the hybrid model, which teams the supercharged V-6 from Audi’s new S4 sedan and S5 cabrio with a 47-hp electric motor for a claimed combined system output of 380 hp and 427 lb-ft.

2011 Volkswagen Touareg has an 8-speed automatic transmission, and is rated to tow 7700 pounds. Even the Hybrid. All-wheel drive is standard, a simplified variant of 4Motion. The luxury trim is a complete effort and execution by Volkswagen that’s impressive in its scope and attention to detail.
