Being more accessible in the world market, the new "Volkswagen" crossover quickly gained popularity. What is noteworthy, the novelty has become cheaper and at the same time less "capricious" in terms of reliability than the "BMW-X5". Looking at the photo of the first generation of the Volkswagen-Touareg, we see a formidable and confident look of a real SUV. The large radiator grille, large windscreen and relief hood do not at all remind of its belonging to the "parkets". Slightly spoils the picture of optics, borrowed from the passenger "Passat". A high ground clearance, a slightly raised bumper and large wheel rims give confidence that the car will overcome any roadblocks. In addition, there is a crossover "Volkswagen-Tuareg" air suspension.
