The Touareg, a mainstay of Volkswagen's lineup since 2004, is a midsize SUV with seating up to 5. The Volkswagen Touareg has some real zest, surpassing typical horsepower for its class. With standard all-wheel drive (AWD), it handles mud, snow, and sand with ease. Volkswagen offers a 6-year, 72,000-mile basic/powertrain warranty on its lineup.
We estimate that the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0289% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 3.2956%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0289% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 3.2956% chance of being injured.
Compared to the average vehicle, the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg is 38% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg is 29% less likely to result in a fatal accident.
