Introduced for the 2004 model year, and designed in conjunction with the Porsche Cayenne, the Volkswagen Touareg was VW's first SUV. The 5-seat Touareg delivered a blend of car-like handling with truck-like off-road prowess despite its low stance, according to the manufacturer. The 2007 model year saw the return of the diesel-powered Touareg, with a 10-cylinder twin-turbo engine that delivered better acceleration and fuel economy than its gasoline-powered counterparts.

Introduction
Introduced for the 2004 model year, and designed in conjunction with the Porsche Cayenne, the Volkswagen Touareg was VW's first SUV. The 5-seat Touareg delivered a blend of car-like handling with truck-like off-road prowess despite its low stance, according to the manufacturer. The 2007 model year saw the return of the diesel-powered Touareg, with a 10-cylinder twin-turbo engine that delivered better acceleration and fuel economy than its gasoline-powered counterparts. It's price"at the top of the Touareg model range"and the fact it wasn't 50-state emissions compliant led to its removal from the U.S. lineup. The Touareg received a significant update in 2008 that initiated a name change to differentiate the model from the prior years (it was now the "Touareg 2"). In 2009, Volkswagen is re-introducing a diesel powerplant to the Touareg. This time around, the automaker has chosen an efficient 50-state emissions compliant V-6 TDI powerplant.
