The Touareg is still a big crossover, but even with TDI or Hybrid drivetrains, it's no more efficient than some seven-passenger wagons.

16 mpg city, 23 highway (VR6); 19/28 mpg (TDI); 20/24 mpg (Hybrid)
EPA





There are three engines available in the 2014 VW Touareg, each with a very different personality. You won't find a ton of torque in the V-6 (VR6) models, but they're plenty strong and have willing acceleration if you're not towing frequently. For those in need of a vehicle with towing capabilities, we strongly encourage looking at the TDI models. The Hybrid model improves the city fuel economy to some degree, but not enough to justify its premium pricing.

While we value the Hybrid as a stepping stone toward greater electrification, we'd advise shoppers to make the practical choice toward the TDI—especially if you plan to do much expressway driving or take a lot of highway trips.

At an EPA-rated 17/23 mpg or 19 mpg combined, the V-6 lands at the bottom of the fuel-economy scale for the Touareg--and that's about par for the class, really. The TDI model rings in at 20/29 mpg or 23 mpg combined, while the Hybrid version gets just 20/24 mpg or 21 mpg combined. And with the Hybrid particularly, there's a stiff price premium.

Conclusion

The Touareg is still a big crossover, but even with TDI or Hybrid drivetrains, it's no more efficient than some seven-passenger wagons.

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.
