Range Rover Evoque vs. Volkswagen Touareg

Families in Schaumburg and Hoffman Estates who need a vehicle with utility and luxurious features might be considering the 2017 Range Rover Evoque and the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg. The Evoque is a luxury crossover, while the Touareg is a mid-size luxury SUV, and they have a number of important differences. Let's see how these two leading models compare in the areas of fuel economy, price, and available premium features.

Competitive Pricing

While both models come with standard all-wheel drive, there's a big difference in their price at the base trim level. The Touareg Sport starts at $49,495 MSRP, while the Evoque SE in the five-door configuration costs $41,800 MSRP. That's a difference of over $7,000, enough to upgrade the Evoque to the distinguished SE Premium trim level with over $2,000 to spare. In addition, the Evoque can be purchased in convertible or coupe configurations. No matter what your individual needs, the Evoque has a model that meets them.

Fuel Economy

One advantage of choosing a crossover over a mid-size SUV is the improved fuel economy. Let's take a look at the base trim efficiency of these two models:

  • With an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, the Touareg gets 17 mpg city/23 mpg highway/19 mpg combined in EPA estimates.

  • The Evoque comes standard with a nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. That helps it achieve 21 mpg city/29 mpg highway/24 mpg combined in EPA estimates.

As you can see, the Evoque gives you better efficiency at a more competitive price.

Available Features

A hallmark of a premium luxury vehicle is its ability to offer high-tech amenities at higher trim levels. Fortunately, the Range Rover Evoque doesn't disappoint. The following features are included in the Autobiography trim level:

  • Cooled Front Driver and Passenger Seat

  • Massaging Front Driver's Seat

  • 17-Speaker Audio System with Subwoofer

  • Steering-Wheel Mounted Transmission Controls

  • LED Headlights

Sadly, none of these features are offered in the highest trim level of the Touareg. When you want nothing but the best in luxury, the choice is clear.
