It was tough not to ogle my friends Touareg R5 TDI. But it was the sheer size, finish and presence of the Touareg that got me hooked!

Exterior additions of chrome against shiny black metallic paint; huge, sporty sliver alloys, massive exhaust pipes and a large imposing chrome grille make for a very agreeable blend of Volkswagen design. This is a very large vehicle that makes a Patrol look tame.

Inside the SUV is impeccable build quality and magnificent, classy style. The leather seats are sumptuous, and the dash is elegantly designed with wood trim, leather and chrome finishing.
