2013 VOLKSWAGEN TOUAREG The 2013 Volkswagen Touareg shows the road ahead with advanced, fuel-saving technologies, and a premium driving experience. The 2013 Touareg model range features both the world's first supercharged gasoline hybrid and a TDI Clean Diesel model. The Hybrid packs the punch of a V8 with the fuel efficiency of a V6 -- and, at speeds up to 30 mph, the zero emissions of an electric car -- while the TDI has EPA estimated fuel economy of 29 mpg on the highway, with a range of more than 700 miles on each tank of ultra-low-sulfur diesel. New for 2013, is an increase in horsepower for Touareg TDIs, from 225 to 240. Other changes include new LED taillights on the Hybrid, 18-inch "Karakum" wheels -- now available on VR6 and TDI Sport trims -- and "Vavona" decorative wood interior trim in Executive and Hybrid models. The Touareg's exterior sports a crisp, sleek, aerodynamic look based on the Volkswagen Design DNA. This includes the horizontal front-end theme you see in the latest Golf, Jetta, Eos and Passat, as well the Touareg's smaller sibling, the Tiguan. Ignore the rugged, mud-plugging SUV image; the 2013 Touareg is all about luxury. Witness the optional "Vienna" leather in Black Anthracite, Cornsilk Beige, or Saddle Brown. Or the elegant Walnut wood accents. And the available 620-watt, 10-speaker sound system from Danish hi-fi specialists Dynaudio. To let the sun shine in, the 2013 Touareg offers an available expansive panoramic glass sunroof. Measuring 57 inches long and 39 inches wide, it's a full 350 percent larger than the sunroof in the previous model. It is so big that this tilt/slide roof occupies almost the entire roof area above the occupants, thus conveying a unique feeling of open space.

The base MSRP listed in our Guide products are our representations of the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price, at the time of introduction, with standard equipment only. Our MSRP excludes taxes, transportation, and destination charges.
- Gas Guzzler Tax
Manufacturers of new cars that fail to meet the minimum fuel economy level of 22.5 miles per gallon (mpg) have to pay a “Gas Guzzler Tax”. The tax is intended to discourage the production and purchase of fuel inefficient vehicles.
- Destination Charge
A destination charge is a fee that comes from the cost of delivering a brand new vehicle to a dealership. Cars have to be prepped for transport, delivered, then prepared for sale at the dealer, so destination fees are an attempt to recoup those costs.
