2017 Volkswagen Touareg on snowy road

2017 Volkswagen Touareg Elgin IL

What comes to mind when you think of SUVs? Are you imagining a big beast of a vehicle, roaring through the wilderness, splashing mud every which way? Do you see a spacious interior caked in dirt from going camping or picking the kids up after a particularly messy day at soccer practice? These scenarios can certainly be a part of SUV ownership, but it doesn’t hurt to add a touch of class to the proceedings. Enter the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg in Elgin IL.

The 2017 iteration of the luxurious Volkswagen Sport Utility Vehicle is largely a refresh from the previous model year rather than a complete overhaul. Still, you can expect to be seated inside a spacious and intuitive cabin with plenty of room for yourself and others. You will still find the sophisticated craftsmanship and convenient technology that has made the Touareg a star in the lineup. Let’s dig a little deeper into this unique automobile.
