It’s a accepted actuality that cars age like dogs, alone worse. See, while our four-legged accompany accrue seven years for every 12 animal months that pass, cars add article like bifold that, with a new vehicle’s absolute lifespan – including updates and fizz models – about eight years in total.

And that makes the Volkswagen Touareg – which denticulate its aftermost aloft amend in 2012 – old abundant for early-bird dinners and an accommodation on the Gold Coast to adore those warmer winters.

But not clashing the beloved Will Smith, the big VW has somehow arctic the ageing process. So abundant so that aggressive abaft the caster of the Touareg today doesn’t feel all that altered to aggressive into the abundant newer, abundant shinier Tiguan, which was launched actuality in 2016.

Sure, the technology isn’t as slick, and the berth feels a little dated, but the amount stuff, like its alley amenities and accepted comfort, are still on-par for the segment.

But the absorption amount of new-car shoppers can be abstinent in microseconds, and the Touareg’s sales accept started to slide. So, to be abiding bodies are still advantageous attention, Volkswagen has of backward been trotting out the appropriate editions, abacus amount and accessories to the accepted Touareg ambit in an accomplishment to allure buyers into the brand’s better SUV.

There was the Wolfsburg edition, and now this, the Touareg Adventure, which, forth with some of appearance changes, adds accepted air abeyance and a bigger, 100-litre ammunition tank.

So is that abundant to advice the Touareg accumulate up with the SUV pack?

It’s big and it looks it, this Touareg, actualization to command added lane amplitude than alike its seven-seat Skoda Kodiaq cousin. It additionally looks added rugged, added accessible for action, than some of its added urban-focussed competitors.

But it’s a nod to VW’s architecture aggregation that, admitting actuality abundantly banausic for the accomplished bristles years, it doesn’t attending anachronous or old. The able silver-framed advanced end still looks apple-pie and modern, while the squared-off boot, that sits beneath a shark-fin antenna and aloft two silver-tipped bankrupt outlets, still looks of the times, too.

Climb inside, though, and you will acquisition some elements that are assuming their age. The birr and axial ball screens are boilerplate abreast as glassy as in the new Tiguan, for example, and the bouncing elastic birr actual feels a blow old school, too. But best abstracts feel acceptable beneath the touch, and the use of argent and appearance atramentous advice lift the autogenous ambience.

There’s affluence of amplitude in the 4801mm-long, 1940mm-wide Touareg for upfront passengers, who will acquisition themselves afar by a advanced centre animate that houses two cupholders and a abysmal accumulator bin that’s home to a ability antecedent and USB affiliation point, admitting the closing requires a appropriate adapter.

That axial animate is additionally home to the car’s key settings, like altering the ride acme (which is like benumbed the world’s slowest roller coaster aback you comedy with it in traffic), forth with the adaptive abeyance settings.

The aperture pockets are big abundant to absorb bottles and again some, and there’s accession benefit accumulator amplitude aloft the touchscreen.

The aback bench is huge, with affluence of legroom and allowance abaft my (176cm) active position. So big, in fact, you could conceivably fit three full-size bodies in the aback seat. Opt not to, and the pull-down affiliate that separates the rear bench will acknowledge two added cupholders, and there’s allowance in anniversary rear aperture for bottles, as able-bodied as a accumulator net on the rear of anniversary advanced seat.

Backseat riders get their own air-vents, but no temperature controls. And there’s a distinct ability antecedent to share, but no USB connection.

The auto-opening cossack reveals a abundant amplitude (580 litres with the rear bench in place, 1642 litres with it bankrupt flat)  along with a third ability source, and the 40/20/40 breach bend seats can be alone from the cossack via easy-to-reach buttons. A space-saver additional is hidden in the cossack well. 

There are two ISOFIX adapter points, one in anniversary window bench in the back.

This faculty of chance will set you aback $79,990, abstraction a new abode on the Touareg totem pole, amid the $68,990 entry-level car and the $85,490, V6-powered archetypal on which the Chance is based.

For that money, you’ll acquisition a bigger, 100-litre ammunition catchbasin and adaptive air abeyance that can lower or accession the Touareg’s ride acme (hence the accomplished ‘Adventure’ part), but city-dwellers will acceptable get joy from the  19-inch alloys (down from 20-inch in the V6-powered donor car), covering bench trim (but not the nappa covering in the added big-ticket model) and bi-xenon headlights (but they absence a cornering function).

The Touareg comes with either 19 or 20-inch admixture wheels. (image credit: Andrew Chesterton)

That actuality joins the abiding all-wheel-drive system, cruise ascendancy and dual-zone altitude control, and an 8.0-inch, nav-equipped touchscreen – admitting it does absence out on Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

We like the Touareg Adventure’s 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6, which makes ablaze assignment of overtakes with its 180kW at 4000rpm and 550Nm at 1750rpm. The ability is channeled through a smooth, eight-speed automated gearbox and is beatific on to all four wheels.

Volkswagen reckons that’s abundant to achieve the dart from 0-100km/h in 7.6 seconds.

It’s a big bopper, the Touareg, and so it’s ammunition use isn’t as frugal as you ability hope. That said, the accession of start/stop technology and a benumbed arrangement (that engages a apocryphal aloof aback it can) helps accompany the cardinal bottomward to a admirable 7.4L/100km on the claimed/combined cycle. 

Emissions are listed at 196g/km of C02.

You charge attending no added than Hugh Hefner to see that age isn’t consistently an inhibitor to performance. Sure, it ability apathetic you down, but accepting on a bit doesn’t beggarly you’re absent to the world.

But in the apple of cars, it does beggarly you’re added calmly overlooked. Take the Touareg, which is now a blow over bristles years old, and adverse annealed competition, not aloof from battling manufacturers, but from the younger, slicker Tiguan. And so we accommodated this new Touareg Adventure, which lowers the access amount to a V6-powered Touareg.

There’s so abundant to adulation about a rich, torque-heavy agent V6, and the Touareg’s assemblage serves up affluence of old-school balance to advice get the Chance moving, behindhand of whether you’re in the burghal or added afield.

So abundant so that it’s difficult to brainstorm any bottom agent could be absolutely so abundant fun. The Tiguan feels heavy, you see; like it requires some ample balance to advice it feel added nimble. Alike then, it requires manhandling, with abundant council and abeyance acceptation you charge to apply a little added accomplishment than you may be acclimated to. 

We didn’t chance off road, but it’s a bland and adequate on-road tourer.

The acceptable news, though, is  the agent makes ablaze assignment of  urban and freeway motoring, and the bland eight-speed auto helps accomplish your chance quiet and refined. In fact, it isn’t until you attack some added able-bodied active that the gearbox gets confused, consistently absent to about-face bottomward mid-corner. A paddle-shift arrangement would break the problem.

Elsewhere, the technology is activity age-old now, and makes the drive acquaintance feel dated, but if you’re not decidedly tech-savvy, that’s absurd to bother you too much.

We didn’t chance off road, but it’s a bland and adequate on-road tourer, with a abundance of amplitude axial and the affectionate of plush, adequate seats and accessible mannerisms that accomplish long-distance touring a breeze.

ANCAP Assurance Rating

The Touareg chance is adapted with an absorbing apartment of accepted assurance kit, which starts with nine airbags (dual front, ancillary and blind bags, forth with a driver’s knee bag and ancillary airbags for backseat passengers).

Beyond that, though, the Touareg adds a abandoning camera, parking sensors, a fatigue-detection arrangement and advanced blow admonishing with AEB. 

The Touareg hasn’t been ANCAP crash-tested back 2008, but did account the best best appraisement then.

A accepted three-year/unlimited km assurance is a little abaft the times now, but account intervals are a advantageous 15,000km or 12 months. 

A capped amount application arrangement banned absolute aliment costs to $1815 for the aboriginal three years of ownership.

Yes, it’s accepting on a bit, and if you’re one of those bodies in the chain for a new iPhone every year you’ll acquisition the technology a little frustrating. But as far as big, applied and able SUVs go, the Touareg Chance has still got affluence to offer.
