Personally, I'd buy the Touareg for your towing. It will drive like a RWD SUV (the XC90 drives like a FWD), it has a wider track (more stable), better brakes (multi-piston Brembos with larger rotors), better turning radius (by 2 feet), wider tires (better footprint), and it weighs 500 pounds more. It's simply a better TOWING vehicle.

Re: (GrecianVolvo)

Yannis,

With all due respect (and I respect your knowledge quite a bit), my VW's (I've had several) have all been much more reliable than my Volvo's (I've had two). My XC90 is the least reliable car or SUV my wife and I have owned in the past five years! Yes, some Touaregs are lemons, but the same can be said about the XC90. The XC90 is a great SUV, but it is far from flawless.

You really can't argue against my point when I say the V8 Touareg is a better tow vehicle - regardless of reliability.
