"Master Duel": Volkswagen Touareg VS. Land Rover Discovery

Gemma · Aug 8, 2019 11:14 AM

As is well-known that Touareg can dart through the downtown even in its slightly large body, while Land Rover is born to across the rainforest and have its off-road ability on the ball, so many may suspect that Land Rover is destined to win the off-road contest if racing with Touareg.

Confronting the "incontrovertible" opiniton, TFLCAR conducted an off-road test recently, in which the team made contrast of Volkswagen Touareg with Land Rover Discovery, and the video goes way beyond our speculation.

To set up an impartial stance over two competitors, both the test vehicles in this experiment were in its 2004 version. In the test of the ground clearance, Land Rover Discovery passed the test easily with its tough tire and robust lifting capacity as expected. And Volkswagen Touareg, surprisingly, countered the test as easily as what Discovery performed.

In the next test task, Discovery struggled through the obstacles, while Touareg completed the test with no effort. To the core, VW Touartrg is packed up with electronics to deal with traction control plus a four-wheel independent suspension to cope with bumps and potholes. Although both cars have completed their tasks, it is clear that Touareg performs better.

It is worth mentioning that the 2004 Land Rover Discovery has a 4.2-litre V-8 engine that makes 217 hp and 300 pound-feet of torque. Touareg uses a 4.2-litre V-8 engine sourced from Audi that makes 310 hp and 302 pound-feet of torque.

Both cars are supreme in their respective aspects, but what Touareg did in this video was unexpected.
