#1 Why VW found the Tuaregs worthy of naming an SUV after continues to baffle me. I would never buy a car named after a tribe of bloodthirsty Muslim desert raiders.

#3 I think it was because nobody'd ever heard of the Tuaregs back then.

There probably aren't many more of them today.

#4 The car was named 'Touareg' in reference to the Dakar Rally that once took place in the region of the Tuareg.
