When it comes to big 4x4s, Volkswagen doesn’t have the heritage of Jeep or Land Rover. That doesn’t mean it isn’t able to build a thoroughly capable SUV, as the revised Touareg proves. 

The latest version of the car that first went on sale in 2010 has revised bumpers, grilles and alloy wheels, and new colours.

More significant changes are under the bonnet. UK buyers have the choice of two V6 diesels, both returning 42.8mpg on the combined cycle, with power outputs of 201bhp and 258bhp, respectively.
