What's it like to drive?
This Touareg is a tip-tronic with paddles shift on the steering wheel which makes the driving easy both around town and on the motorways. It cruises effortlessly on motorways with excellent economy for the size of the vehicle. Round town it is nimble and easy to manage - however lots of short runs impacts the fuel economy negatively.
What's it like to park?
Has 'OPS' Optical Parking Sensor which is reliable and easy to use. The positions of the wing mirrors and rear-view mirror make for easy visibility when reversing in to spaces. The vehicle has a good turning circle which also helps getting into awkward spaces. Being that the vehicle is wider than standard saloons, narrow spaces are to be avoided.
