Expert Quotes:

it's still unadventurous
MSN Autos

The exterior is close to the first-generation model, featuring clean lines and tight dimensions.
AutoWeek

The suspension is adjustable and quite agreeable, cushioning pockmarked roads, unpaved stretches and highways with ease.
Edmunds' Inside Line

The look is both handsome and just a touch aggressive
Autoblog

interior isn't difficult to use and is quite attractive, especially with the optional wood trim complementing the silver trim
Motor Trend

The 2011 Volkswagen Touareg has been fully redesigned, with the new look adding more carlike details and toning down the ruggedness a bit. Classier, better detailed, and more wagonlike are all ways to describe the look, as VW's changes in design reflect the surging popularity of crossover wagons over trucklike SUVs.

On the outside, a new grille and front end design are much more like that used in Volkswagen's car lineup. Flanks are more softly sculpted, are are the front fenders. Overall, the Touareg is slightly wider, though not as tall, as the previous model, but a longer wheelbase and more overall length result in more interior space; given those changes, overall the Touareg keeps a silhouette that's much like that of the outgoing model.

Inside, the Touareg keeps more of the same with respect to layout—a high seating position, with an upright orientation to the instrument panel and a high, wide center console—but trims and materials have been upgraded, and matte-metallic bezels punctuate the theme. 

Conclusion

The 2011 Volkswagen Touareg takes a step away from rugged style on the outside, and it looks smoother, classier, and more at home in suburban driveways.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
