Claremore Driveway: 2013 Volkswagen Toureg VR6 Sport


You can easily spend $70k on the Porsche Cayenne, or you can buy a 2013 VW built on the same platform, for about half that price.

I’ve driven Cayennes that, frankly, felt a little stiff. The Toureg is a much more drivable everyday car. The 280 horse engine is not as big as some of its competitors, but rigged with the 8-speed transmission and all wheel drive that still goes 0-60 in 5.8 seconds, according to Edmunds test records. That’s plenty fast to get you in trouble.

The seat is more comfortable for me than some of the competitors and it’s got the xenon lights and other grown-up toys that are expected in a luxury SUV.

Comparing the Toureg and the Cayenne, I like the idea of buying for half the price and using the other $30k for something else (but that’s just me).

My name is Robby and I’m a car nut. The best part of my job at Melton Sales is that I get to drive a different hot car home every night.
