Not that I know of. They are tough to compare as they serve different purposes. The FX is performance oriented X-over and the Toureg is a very off-road capable luxury SUV. What do you want to know? The FX is much faster and handles much better on the road & the T-reg is more cushy, luxurious and darn near amphibious. They both are nice, depending on what your preferences are. I also thought I'd read that the VW has had quite a few more problems than the FX. VW service can't compare either, if those are determining factors for you.
Side note: I saw an FX on the used car side of my local VW dealer (right accross form the Infiniti dealer) this week.
I had the chance to extensively drive/test a fully loaded V8 Toureg (my in-law's) for an entire week.
They are on opposite ends of the spectrum and obviously built to serve completely different purposes. If it's comfort and off roading capability you're looking for, the Toureg is a decent choice. The biggest problem I had w/ the Toureg was the steering/handling. It's a 5,000lb truck but you get ZERO feedback from the steering. I would go as far as saying it reminds me of driving an old Caddy. Mushy, excessively loose steering w/ zero feedback on your limits. It certainly has a more comfortable ride compared to the FX, but it doesnt handle even half as well or confidently. If you're looking for a driver's car, the Toureg would definitely dissappoint you. I'd suggest you goto the dealership and take a test drive for yourself.
Apples and hand grenades. Touareg is a take-kids-to-soccer/drive-thru-a-swamp/get-to-know-service-manager's-middle-name type of vehicle. The FX is of a have-you-smoked-a-sports-sedan-lately variety automobile. Though it does offer suprisingly good winter traction. The turbo diesel V10 coming this fall is gonna be a pretty insane engine, but it will cost ya.
I'd have to disagree. The VW has no in-dash CD changer, and if you want to use the *CD*-based GPS system, you don't even have a single-disc CD player. Not to mention, it has german feel and general poor usability. Another nice feature, you can unlock the doors without the keys, but you can't start the car without them, so what's the point?
I used to rent a Ford Exploder (which is an unfair joke, that SUV was actually pretty nice) that had keyless entry via a keypad, but you still needed a key. I thought this was a nice feature, and would prevent a lot of lockouts.
when i say nicer interior, i mean the quality of the leather and the overall build quality. the FX is great IMO, but i think the toureg has a nicer overall build........now the ergonomics of the instruments and the nav is a different story. FX is superior in this respect.
Hey guys this is my first post, excited to be here. Just wanted to pick some brains about my ride and try to estimate it's longevity. So I've had this 2009 FX50S for almost 5 years. I really only drive it short distances and the occasional road trip so it's pretty low mileage (40K). People have...
Question to FX35 gurus - 2006 model, does not go over 4000 rpm / 100 miles per hour, with gas pedal fully pressed. Car has 140.000 miles on the clock. I took it to diagnostics, no fault is shown. What could be the problem? Thanks a lot in advance.
So, how many miles do you have on your 1 GEN FX35/45?
I am the original owner of a 1st GEN FX35 (built 2/2005) Gold/Tan 5-Speed Automatic SUV with 147,301 miles. I am seriously debating if the value is worth the upkeep on the best vehicle I've ever owned, especially since crossing the 100,000...
