The Volkswagen flagship did particularly well in the evaluation thanks to its timeless and functional design. The reasons for the jury’s decision read like a tribute to the Touareg: “With the now third generation of the Touareg, Volkswagen offers a timelessly elegant all-rounder that leaves nothing to be desired in terms of form and technology and also perfectly embodies the classic Volkswagen virtues. A fantastic SUV, harmoniously designed down to the very last detail, with a compact design that is pleasantly solid yet of impressive quality. A perfect family car that is impressive and also fun on all occasions.”
Impressive top model
The Touareg is Volkswagen’s top model and the brand’s technology leader. The well-engineered proportions and clear lines make the dimensions of the SUV both dynamic and elegant. The Touareg combines majestic solidity with finely tuned sophistication. The chrome slats of the eye-catching, upright grill seamlessly integrate into the headlights, which serve as the broad shoulders of its precisely structured character. The Touareg lettering confidently adorns the centre of the rear. “The Touareg is a friendly character that doesn’t have to prove itself. Its sovereignty is based on steadfast composure – it knows it can do it. We have perfected this character with the new generation,” says Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Design, when describing the design process.
