Car Profiles - Volkswagen Touareg

VOLKSWAGEN TOUAREG

This one is more improved than its porky predecessor, the Touareg has lots of luxury amenities, justifying its P4M price. A diesel comes standard, and it has the BlueMotion technology packed. Too bad, there's no third row seat and its darn expensive for such a car.

The Good: Interior quality is tops
The Bad: Very expensive to buy

Price Range: P4,390,000
Our Rating: ***
