In Australia’s Best Cars 2014, the winner in the category of all wheel drive SUV priced between $65,000 and $125,000 was the Volkswagen Touareg v6 2TDI. This was a combination of two categories from previous years. We saw all-terrain vehicles be brought in with luxury SUV’s aswell and that was a sign of the moving market towards vehicles which have not really a very luxurious interior but also very very capable offroad and the Volkswagen Touareg sets a new benchmark in this category The big surprise that came with this was a combination of a number of things did very well on price compared to the competitors in that category also had a very well finished interior aswell which tended to push it above the rest. Its off-road ability was excellent as well, it’s air suspension gave you the ability to really raise that vehicle up high so it had good clearances and was surprisingly good off-road That off-road function from within the car as well very easy to operate too. There’s excellent visibility all around the car aswell, it’s got a very powerful V6 engine.This is a big vehicle, this is up around two tonnes the tyre technology, the steering technology, the ability for this car to be sit nice and low down close to the road gives that almost a dual personality, it’s not quite a sports car but you know it’s not far off in terms that kind of performance at the same time the air suspension gives it a very supple ride aswell at hallway speeds, refinement is right up there, its a very quiet diesel, not too much noise intrudes into the cabin that feeling of luxury from within the cabin as well is what made this car come to the fore for a price that’s well under $100,000 in .
