The 2009 Volkswagen Touareg starts at just under $40,000 and comes equipped with a wide range of features, but moving up toward the fully optioned, $55,000-plus Volkswagen Touareg starts to diminish the vehicle's overall value.

For your $40,000 entry fee, the 2009 Volkswagen Touareg VR6 comes "standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic wipers, a power liftgate, a sunroof, rear parking assist, [and] a tilt/telescoping steering wheel," according to Edmunds. Kelley Blue Book reports that "dual-zone automatic climate controls, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, automatic headlights, [and] heated seats" are also among the standard features. Moving up to the Volkswagen Touareg V-8, ConsumerGuide finds that the standard features list grows to include a "heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, 12-way power passenger seat, memory system (driver seat, mirrors), wood interior trim, automatic day/night outside mirrors, [and] rear side sunshades."

The Touareg Volkswagen's options list holds something for just about everyone, according to reviews read by TheCarConnection.com. A new Lux Plus package for the Volkswagen Touareg adds such features as "keyless access and starting, upgraded sound system," and, for the V-6 versions, all of the V-8's upgraded standard features, according to ConsumerGuide. Another package that the reviewers at Edmunds find desirable is the 2009 Volkswagen Touareg "Technology Package, [which] adds a rearview camera, a hard-drive-based navigation system and an upgraded 11-speaker audio system. A locking rear differential is also available." Unfortunately, Bluetooth functionality is not yet available on the Touareg Volkswagen.

Conclusion

The 2009 Volkswagen Touareg offers a strong list of base standard features, but the options list gets pricey in a hurry.

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.
