The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Land Rover LR4 takes on tough terrain with ease, and it's become more adept at imparting a carlike driving feel. The 2008 Volkswagen Touareg has more toughness than most mid-size SUVs for heavy-duty towing and off-road needs yet on-the-road comfort doesn’t suffer.
