The Touareg name is taken from a nomadic tribe in the Sahara. VW says it has aimed for a best combination of two usually separate SUV worlds. On-road, the Touareg serves as a luxury sedan, and off-road, it attacks terrain with a "mountain-goat attitude."

The Touareg's U.S. lifetime will start in June 2003, when it hits VW stores at a rate of 45,000 or so a year. Price of the base model with a 3.2-liter V-6 and all-wheel drive will be in the $35,000 neighborhood. Add the optional 4.2-liter V-8 from the Audi A8, or the 420-hp W-12 expected in 2004, plus air suspension, and you'll knock on 50 large.

The Touareg is a new platform to be shared with Porsche (its version is the Cayenne, due out by March of 2004).

It's pretty Obvious what the Volkwagen logo is (a V over a W in a blue background, sorounded by a circle). It's origin is rather mundane though. The logo was the result of an office competition to see come up with a logo. The winner of the competition (who won 50 Marks for his troubles) was an engineer named Franz Reimspiess (the same man who perfected the engine for the Beetle in the 1930's).

Carlos's comments

This Toureg is ours. It's quite amazing (the v8) and without a doubt, the best of the category, even though I test drove everything from a Mini to the Porsche Cayenne. The BBS wheels really make this thing stand out nicely, and I had the front windows tinted to match the factory glass in the rears.

UPDATE: We took a 2 hour trip with the AC on and when we got to our destination, the entire front was flooded. The AC was leaking the water into the interior. It was all professionally dryed at the dealer and repaired.
