2017 Volkswagen Touareg vs. 2017 Buick Enclave

All vehicle segments certainly have different missions, and this applies to the midsize crossover SUV segment as well. While buyers shopping in this segment are generally looking for the same things -- versatility, performance, efficiency -- the ways that different models achieve this certainly can vary from one to another. Case in point: check out this comparison between the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg and 2017 Buick Enclave. How do they fare head to head?

Right off the bat, let’s agree on one thing: both are upscale, appealing crossover SUVs, and both are well-liked by their owners. They both even employ a similar standard engine, a 3.6L V6. However, the way they channel their power differs greatly, as the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg can tow more than three times as much than the competing Buick Enclave. Factor in its better overall fuel economy, and it’s clear that the Volkswagen offers something that the competing Buick cannot.
