The Car Connection's Take

8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Volkswagen Touareg is an expensive way to purchase a mainstream brand's vehicle, but it's more luxurious than many of its mainstream competitors. The 2014 Volvo XC90 is a luxurious, smart choice for families with priorities on safety and comfort, though it isn't exactly cutting-edge anymore.
