Volkswagen Touareg 3.0 TDI (2016)

by Adrian

This is the second generation of Volkswagen Touareg, the flagship SUV of Volkswagen in Europe. The car shares its platform with Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7. This model shown here is a special mid range Mountain edition with a very low mileage: less than 1,000 km on the clock. Volkswagen Touareg 3.0 TDI is one of the few mainstream SUVs of its time that still has a 3.0-litre V6 engine, many brands adopting smaller engines. This second generation of Touareg was launched in 2010 and it received a facelift back in 2014.
