Some call the Touareg difficult to classify, due to its luxury-level features paired with the economy brand "Volkswagen" badging. The 2016 Touareg in Allentown PA also falls into a higher budget range -- there's no sense in trying to conceal that fact, although it still comes in below premium brand competitors like the BMW X5, Lexus RX and Porsche Cayenne. The Touareg remains an alluring alternative to other, more common crossovers, too, such as the Ford Edge and the Nissan Murano, offering a level of refinement and capability that the American and Japanese mass market models can't match.
The Touareg offers two powertrain options and three trim levels. It seats five and falls into the midsize crossover class. Standard on the base Sport are 18-inch wheels, automatic and adaptive bi-xenon head lamps, LED accent lights, automatic wipers, a power liftgate, heated side mirrors, cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated eight-way power front seats, premium vinyl upholstery, 60/40-split folding rear seats, an auto-dimming mirror, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity and a 6.5-inch touchscreen.
The base Touareg engine is a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque; an 8-speed automatic and all-wheel drive are standard. The Touareg TDI has not been affected by the VW diesel emissions issue and houses a turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6 with 240 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque.
No matter which powertrain you choose, the 2016 Volkswagen Touareg in Allentown PA can tow over 7,700 pounds when properly equipped, so if you do have something to haul, this crossover wouldn't disappoint.
The conventional gasoline 3.6-liter V6 comes in with 23 MPG highway EPA-rated fuel economy, while the Touareg's diesel engine will provide up to 29 MPG highway, an unprecedented number for a crossover SUV.
