2013 Volkswagen Touareg Lux VR6 4Matic. The 2013 Volkswagen Touareg in three different trims--Sport, Lux and Executive--and each of these trims is offered in either VR6 or TDI form. VR6 models have a narrow-angle 'VR6' V6 engine under the hood, making 280 horsepower. The VR6 is quiet, refined and high-revving, with good passing response, while the diesel is a heavy puller, at its best in the low-to-mid revs, which makes it a good choice either for towing, up to 7,716 pounds. The Touareg is built with a stout unit-body construction and a tough 4Motion all-wheel-drive system with rear limited-slip Torsen differential (sending 60 percent of torque to the rear most of the time) is standard on all Touareg models. The suspension and steering layout, however, with control arms front and rear, coil springs and variable-ratio power steering, is tuned mostly toward on-the-road responsiveness yet with a nod to occasional trail use. With either engine, the transmission has a Sport mode, as well as manual gear control if the driver chooses.
A navigation system with a high-definition 3D view and 60-GB hard drive with 15 GB of music storage, can be added separately to the Sport. The Lux includes that system as well as a panoramic sunroof, heated side mirrors, walnut wood trim, soft Vienna leather, 12-way power front seats with driver memory settings and an electric rear-seat release. Executive models add a heated steering wheel, heated front and rear seats, keyless entry, push button with push-button start, Park Distance Control, 20-inch 'Pikes peak' alloy wheels and Dynaudio premium sound, with ten speakers and 620 watts.
