The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Volkswagen Touareg delivers good performance and a luxurious interior--although it's a mainstream brand asking for a luxury-vehicle price. The 2013 Honda Pilot looks tough and truck-like from the outside, yet inside it's one of the better family haulers.
