2017 Volkswagen Touareg Glendale CA
It used to be that sports cars were the ideal when you wanted to keep up with, or surpass, the Jones’. Not so anymore, with some SUVs on the market that offer serious prestige, without the inconvenience and impractical side of seating just two. For those who want luxury without dropping down enough money to buy a home, the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg in Glendale CA is available at New Century Volkswagen. This attractive SUV offers premium appeal without the price tag to match.
One of the things drivers enjoy about the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg is that it’s not just a pretty model. You may not want to take it mudding simply because you don’t want to ruin that fresh metallic paint job, but that doesn’t mean you can’t if you’re so inclined. This model not only has plenty of cargo space and sturdy roof rails to help you pack your sporting gear, but can tow up to 7,716 pounds when properly equipped, making it an ideal option for those who like to get out and see the world.
It’s often surprising when a bold design is paired with a meek engine. Volkswagen didn’t want to provide any nasty discoveries for the Touareg, which is why it has a 3.6-liter V6 engine to deliver 280 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, which is paired with an efficient eight-speed automatic.
One of the key ways to provide a feeling of luxury is to use high-end materials and offer up all the latest technologies from the start. The base Sport w/Technology trim comes standard with 4Motion AWD, a hands-free tailgate, park distance control, Bi-Xenon headlights, navigation and much more.
The Touareg is a luxury SUV for the modern family and comfortably seats five with 103.6 cubic feet of passenger volume. Cargo space sits at 32.1 cubic feet with the rear seats upright, but when folding them flat you can open up a full 64 cubic feet for those larger purchases or outdoor gear.
Trim levels for the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg
In some vehicles, the major differences between trim levels may involve a more potent engine, but in the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg it completely comes down to the additional features you’d like to see in your vehicle. Each trim has the standard 3.6-liter V6, 4Motion all-wheel drive system and an eight-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic, Sport Mode and Dynamic Shift Program.
There are three trim levels for this model year: Sport w/Technology, Wolfsburg and V6 Executive. The base trim comes standard with navigation, full power features, a power tailgate, adaptive cruise control, a heated multi-function steering wheel, park distance control, keyless access with push-button start, heated front seats and lane change assistant.
The Wolfsburg, which has replaced the Lux trim, adds on a panoramic sunroof, 20-inch Tarragona wheels, 14-way power-adjustable front seats and Vienna leather upholstery.
Rounding out the lineup is the Executive, with an overhead view camera, 21-inch Mallory wheels and Dynaudio premium sound.
