Volkswagen Touareg Model Years

, Automotive Editor -

The Volkswagen Touareg began as a luxury crossover with serious off-road intent, a functional city vehicle with the ability to cast-off the urban environment and hit the gravel. In recent years, however, Volkswagen has moved away from 4x4 utility to an emphasis on increased the fuel economy, comfort and overall performance.

It's a tradeoff that works, for the most part, in a second generation that offers increased passenger comfort, seating for five and pleasing on-road performance. The Touareg is a hidden gem in the cluttered luxury crossover market.

The following year, the V6 engine was bumped up by 20 horsepower and VW discontinued the V10, only to see it return in 2007. In 2008, VW renamed the model the Touareg 2 and gave it slightly restyled front and rear ends.
