The 2008 VW Touareg

Updated on May 31, 2010

2008 VW Touareg

Minor Changes to the VW SUV

Well, you might not be able to spell it but you can surely spot the VW Touareg. First created in 2003, it is the Volkswagen's version of the SUV. No, it's not quite like the old VW bus with the smoke crawling out of the windows, but it's got the quality of the Volkswagen name behind it and it gives a little bit of luxury to the VW line. Things have changed some in the nearly five years that the Touareg has been available. Here's what we're looking at for 2008:

The major change which is taking place between the 2007 and 2008 models of the VW Touareg is a change to the engine. VW now has a 3.6 liter V6 engine which will be part of the design of the 2008 model. This is up from a 3.2 liter version in the 2007 Touareg. However, there are other engine options available for those people who want to know what's there under the hood. Those who aren't interested in the V6 have a V8 and V10 version to choose from.

If you're a fan of the Touareg but you aren't really knowledgeable about what's going on with the car's engine (and you really just want a nice SUV that's going to get you where you want to go), then you might be more interested in the changes (albeit minor ones) to the interior and exterior of the car from 2007 to 2008. The major change there is the headlights and taillights which have alterations including a smoky look on the back end. Although, the truth is that you might not be letting anyone see those tail lights since this car lets you tow over 7,000 pounds of whatever you'd like to tow behind you.

So, what do these changes boil down to? Basically, if you already have a Touareg, you don't need to upgrade to the new one unless you're really concerned about the power that you've got going for you under the hood. But if you're in the market for a new car and you're thinking that an SUV that isn't super horrible on the gas mileage and comes backed with a good name is the thing that might be right for you, taking a look at the VW Touareg could be a good decision.
