While the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg and the 2017 Land Rover Discovery are very similar, there were a few features that come standard on the Touareg that aren’t even available on the Land Rover Discovery. Adaptive Cruise Control speeds up and slows down depending on what the car in front of you does. Using a pre-set distance, you’ll always stay at the perfect distance away from the person in front of you even while you’re in cruise control. The Lane Departure Warning system is able to sense when your vehicle is drifting out of its lane without using the turn signal. The vehicle is then able to correct itself and keep you safe and sound in your lane. Blind Spot Monitoring goes hand-in-hand with the Lane Departure system. If there is ever another vehicle in your blind spot and you try to change lanes, your vehicle will alert you visually and audibly to make sure you don’t cut anybody off, or worse.  


Don’t get us wrong, the 2017 Land Rover Discovery is an amazing vehicle, and was a great competitor. There were just a few features that helped the 2017 Touareg take home the gold.
