Used Car: 2014 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid Review

Review Last Updated: 8/7/15

Although the 2014 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid doesn't match the fuel economy of rival hybrid SUVs, critics reported that it has composed handling and a powerful powertrain.

The 2014 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid is ranked:

The 2014 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid comes standard with a V6 engine and an electric motor that auto writers said together produce ample power. They also said the Touareg Hybrid's transition between gas and electric power is smooth. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard, and test drivers reported it delivers seamless shifts. According to the EPA, the 2014 Touareg Hybrid gets 20/24 mpg city/highway, which is pretty good for a luxury midsize SUV but significantly less than what rival hybrid SUVs like the 2014 Lexus RX Hybrid get. The VW Touareg Hybrid is composed in turns and the steering is accurate, reviewers noted. They added that the regenerative brakes, which capture braking energy and help recharge the SUV’s batteries, are strong and have a natural pedal feel, unlike in many hybrids. They also commented that the Touareg Hybrid provides a comfortable, smooth ride.

The interior of the 2014 VW Touareg Hybrid is luxurious and composed of high-quality materials, according to auto journalists. They said that all seats are comfortable and that there is ample space in the back row. Cargo space is adequate for the class. Auto journalists found that the Touareg Hybrid’s touch screen is easy to use and that the climate controls are intuitive. An eight-speaker audio system with an iPod interface, a panoramic sunroof, an auxiliary jack, Bluetooth, satellite radio, navigation with a touch-screen display, a camera system that provides a 360-degree view around the vehicle and a hands-free power liftgate come standard.
