Get the midlevel SE trim. The SE has a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t bother about a stiff ride, although the SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can be a good bargain considering all of the safety and tech equipment you get for the money. Finally, the SE can be obtained with a wide range of options, in order to pick and choose those that are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs could be all of the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 Vw Touareg Tdi. Coming off a redesign just this past year, the 2020 Vw Touareg Tdi is a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with plenty of standard safety equipment and a lot of options to choose from.
As has been the case for some time, you will get the 2020 Vw Touareg Tdi with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a better V6, or you can get the miserly 2020 Vw Touareg Tdi Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 Vw Touareg Tdi is comfortable and compliant. 2020 Vw Touareg Tdi also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 Vw Touareg Tdi with a bit of extra personality. Inside, the 2020 Vw Touareg Tdi provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you go with one of many upper trim levels. There are plenty of options to pick from over the way.
The 2020 Vw Touareg Tdi can be as competent because they come. It’s well-priced on the whole, and modern feature content helps it be supremely easy to drive. If you’re searching for something with a bit more class and space than a small sedan, the 2020 Vw Touareg Tdi might you need to be the sedan for you.
The 2020 Vw Touareg Tdi is the bottom trim. It includes a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 Vw Touareg Tdi Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On another rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and an automobile alarm. 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 bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Most of the features located on the upper trim levels can be put into the lower trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL speakers coupled with an integral navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 Vw Touareg Tdi stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the back seat is easy to fold down to suit longer items. You can find enough cabin storage options to make most people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so they really 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 2020 Vw Touareg Tdi 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.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s very easy to mount a car seat, with obvious and easily accessible lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so your front seat need not be scooted completely forward.
