Volkswagen is adding an entry-level SE trim to its flagship SUV. Is this the new no frills Tuareg version to go for? The Volkswagen Touareg has always been a pretty good car for people who don't like to stand out. Next to the likes of the Audi Q7, BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE, its comparative lack of pretext has historically been marked as the great SUV of choice for those who don't want others to notice - and then perhaps respond - that they just walked away and spent quite a lot of money for a big SUV. A sort of discreet careerist wadded car. The third generation Tuareg changes this a bit. With Volkswagen's popularity reaching an all-time high in China (it's now the brand's biggest market), not only will Wolfsburg choose to stage the 2018 model opening in Beijing, but it's also designed specifically for the Chinese market in mind. What's the point, really; after all, if you want a car to do well, do it for the people who buy it in large quantities. It helps explain why the new Touareg looks the way it does, with enough chrome on the front end to attract even the most humble and disinterested Magpies. But as online shopping as it can now be, the Touareg still sits more towards the inconspicuous end of the luxury SUV spectrum compared to the latest X5 and GLE. This is especially true in this new entry-level SE model, which Volkswagen has introduced in the UK with a £45,445 price tag.
