The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Volkswagen Touareg is a different type of vehicle than it appears. If toughness takes precedence over space and versatility, it might be right for you. The 2010 Audi Q7 tames the SUV bad-boy image with subtler looks, diesel fuel economy, and good on-road performance.
