The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.6
8.4

TCC’s Bottom Line

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. The 2008 Volvo XC90 caters well to safety-minded families who need an all-wheel-drive SUV, though third-row room is strictly limited.
