2014 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid Overview

Is the 2014 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid a Good Used SUV?

The Touareg Hybrid is a decent luxury midsize SUV with an opulent, comfortable interior. Its supercharged V6 gas engine and electric motor provide excellent power, but at the cost of fuel economy – the main attraction of a hybrid. The major strike against the Touareg Hybrid is its below-average reliability rating. There are other midsize hybrid SUVs on the market with lower ownership costs, better fuel economy, and higher reliability scores.

Used 2014 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid Performance and Interior

The 2014 Touareg Hybrid is powered by a supercharged V6 engine and an electric motor that make a combined 380 horsepower. The power plant includes an eight-speed automatic transmission. This potent combination delivers outstanding acceleration – but at the price of fuel economy. The Touareg Hybrid gets an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, which is pretty modest for a midsize hybrid SUV. That’s just 1 mpg better on the highway and 3 mpg better around town than the gas-only Touareg. Still, the Touareg Hybrid has a composed ride and planted handling. Its all-wheel-drive system gives it mild off-roading capabilities.

The Touareg Hybrid was not independently tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Should I Consider Another Used Touareg Hybrid?

The 2014 Touareg Hybrid was the third model year of the SUV’s first generation. You might save money by considering a 2013 Touareg Hybrid instead, but you’ll miss out on the 2014 model’s standard hands-free liftgate and surround-view camera.

Which Used Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid Is Right for Me?

Choosing a 2014 Touareg Hybrid trim couldn’t be easier, as there’s only one available. It provides a plethora of standard features, including satellite radio, Bluetooth, and a touch-screen navigation system. No add-ons were offered when the SUV debuted, so the only real difference between each used model will be its mileage and condition.

Because of the Touareg Hybrid’s below-average reliability, you might want to consider a certified pre-owned model. Volkswagen provides a two-year/24,000-mile limited warranty on all of its certified pre-owned vehicles. Each CPO Volkswagen must pass a 160-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Volkswagen warranty page carefully. Volkswagen also covers its hybrid vehicles with an 8-year/100,000-mile warranty for all hybrid components. Some states like California mandate longer coverage.

2014 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid or 2014 Lexus RX Hybrid?

The 2014 Lexus RX Hybrid sets the standard for luxury midsize SUVs. It has a lavish interior with much more cargo space than the Touareg Hybrid. The RX Hybrid also gets better fuel economy of 29 mpg combined city/highway compared with the Touareg Hybrid’s 21 mpg combined. Add in a perfect reliability rating and lower estimated ownership costs, and the RX Hybrid is the clear choice.

Which Is Better: 2014 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid or 2014 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid?

The 2014 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid and the Touareg Hybrid share the same powertrain, which explains their identical fuel economy ratings. However, the Touareg Hybrid has better steering and one of the best regenerative braking systems available. The Cayenne Hybrid has an almost-perfect reliability rating, which is especially impressive when compared with the Touareg Hybrid’s below-average score. However, the Porsche has significantly higher total cost of ownership estimates. For that money, you’d be better off picking up a certified pre-owned Touareg Hybrid instead.

Which Is Better: 2014 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid or 2014 Volkswagen Touareg?

The 2014 Touareg is the Touareg Hybrid’s gas-only sibling. It’s offered with a gas V6 or a turbodiesel V6. Fuel economy numbers aren’t available for the Volkswagen Touareg TDI because of VW’s diesel emissions scandal. However, the gas-only Touareg is only 1 mpg less fuel-efficient than the hybrid model on the highway and 3 mpg less fuel-efficient around town. The nonhybrid Touareg can’t match the hybrid’s acceleration, but its lower cost of ownership should offset the very modest increase in cost at the fuel pump. It’s a better choice than the hybrid.
