2017 Volkswagen Touareg Las Vegas NV
Volkswagen may not offer many SUVs in its lineup, but the ones that are available are worthy of a second look. The 2017 Volkswagen Touareg, available in Las Vegas at Findlay North Volkswagen, is a luxury-focused model that makes premium features available, without paying extra for the branding. Despite its refined looks, the model is also prepared to work as it is rated to tow up to 7,716 pounds. This means drivers look just as good driving to work as they do taking the boat to the lake.
How do you know if the 2017 VW Touareg is the right model for you? Naturally the best way to find out is to get behind the wheel, but you likely want to know a few things before you trek down to the dealership. The model has a starting MSRP of $49,495 and earns an EPA-estimated 17 city and 23 highway mpg rating. If that seems low, keep in mind that the Touareg is made for those who are looking for performance, and this SUV has a 3.6-liter V6 and standard 4Motion all-wheel drive.
A 3.6-liter V6 engine power the 2017 VW Touareg, delivering a maximum 280 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. The 4Motion AWD system is standard for extra traction over a variety of terrains and through different weather conditions, and an eight-speed automatic provides smooth shifting.
No vehicle feels like a luxury to own unless it has all the modern necessities, plus a host of premium features. The Touareg won’t leave you disappointed with standard features that include park distance control, Bi-Xenon headlights, navigation, a hand-free tailgate and lane change assistant.
There’s a fine line between shopping for a full-size car and getting a larger SUV, and that line tends to be based on how much cargo you need to haul. The Touareg offers 103.6 cubic feet of passenger space for a roomy interior for you, plus an additional 32.1 cubic feet behind the rear seats, which fold flat.

So what it is about the 2017 Touareg that appeals to drivers? Essentially, it hits all the checkboxes for those who have been seeking a model that isn’t all looks and no power, but it also has that refined feel for that sense of being just a step above what you’d buy if you were looking for a family-focused model. It’s practical, but it’s also comfortable and outfitted with soft-touch materials. Some vehicles have all the exterior appeal, but lack that same attention to detail in the interior. Volkswagen knows that’s where you’ll spend the most time and what matters in the long run.
Which isn’t to say you won’t be keeping up with the Jones’ when you park your Touareg outside of the garage. Neutral metallic tones are highlighted by chrome accents for smart and simple touches that provide the Touareg with something just a little bit different, but you can’t quite put your finger on it.
Standard features in the Touareg focus on driver assistance and interior comfort. You’ll find adaptive cruise control, lane change assistant and park distance control help you navigate (along with touchscreen navigation), while heated front seats, a multi-function heated steering wheel and keyless access with push-button start bring on the convenience.
All of this is just the start, as the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg comes in a total of three trim levels. Find out which one is right for you when you stop by Findlay North Volkswagen.
