Coming off a redesign just this past year, the Volkswagen Touareg Second is just a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with a lot of standard safety equipment and plenty of options to choose from.

For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with many different additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a larger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.

As sedans go, the Volkswagen Touareg Second stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is straightforward to fold down to suit longer items. You will find enough cabin storage options to make many people happy. Loading a vehicle seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in the leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The Volkswagen Touareg Second includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
