Cool Cars & Great Deals

Every now and then a car comes along that genuinely surprises; the VW Toureg is one of those. That’s said, I shouldn’t be that surprised, since the Toureg is built on the same platform used by the Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga, and to be fair the result is an SUV that boasts characteristics of both of these standard-setting cars.

Along with all the safety tech, there’s an infotainment system presented in a display screen that not that long ago would have been classed as a big screen tv! This is combined with the build quality and a level of refinement that is ahead of anything in its class.

It was already impressive as a V6 TDI...but now the 4-litre V8 version has arrived, the Touareg is now the best value luxury SUV around. Check out our walkaround video, which mentions all the impressive numbers...including 0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds!

But the best bit is that it delivers all this with a VW badge, so it fits in everywhere, from the northern slopes of Herne Bay, to the building site or parked up at Saturday morning sport.

It’s just one of the Cool Cars featured this week, enjoy the latest episode on Giltrap TV...and good luck to the Blues for Saturday night’s match against the Highlanders.
