Shuttling horses to the riding arena, transporting construction machinery or the drive to the supermarket – while some may need an entire fleet for this huge range of activities, Michael and Daniela Müller can do it all with just one car: a VW Touareg V6 TDI . The large Volkswagen SUV in Oryx White Mother-of-Pearl Effect, inside and out in the sporty R-Line look, is already the third Touareg for this family from Alpen of the lower Rhine region of Germany, unbeatably versatile and a true member of the family.
Optimal for work and leisure
"This car is optimal for us whether for work or leisure", says Michael Müller (43), who runs a building company in the second generation, a family business that employs 20 people and that will be celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. He inherited his love of robust off-road vehicles from his father as well until 2008 when the first generation of the VW Touareg won him over. "Back then, the wave of SUVs was building gradually and we liked the Touareg from the start", says Mr Müller. "It was more of a passenger car. You sat down in it and immediately felt at ease". In addition to the comfort of a luxury-class saloon, the Touareg also offers a towing capacity of 3.5 tonnes, so it's no problem to transport an excavator to the next building site. "You almost don't notice that there's a trailer back there", says Mr Müller. No wonder with 262 PS.
