Volkswagen Touareg. 2003–10 (prod. n/a). 5-door SUV. F/A, 2460 cm³ diesel (I5 OHC), 2967 cm³ diesel, 3580 cm³ petrol (V6 DOHC), 4163 cm³ (V8 DOHC), 4921 cm³ diesel (V10 OHC), 5998 cm³ (W12 DOHC). Second of the VW–AudiPorsche 7L-platform vehicles to launch, in an attempt to get the SUV market in US. Aim was to develop an SUV with sports car-like behaviour on the road, though it was less sporty in execution. No third-row seats, so accommodation not as great as rivals’. V10 TDI regarded as environmentally unfriendly in US and eventually pulled from that market. Mid-term facelift in 2006.
