I wouldn't buy a used Subaru 2.0l/2.5l without a warranty. Not unless the oil consumption was a problem and then fixed. The Tacoma has had it's share of major recalls in 2016 and 2017 models due to leaking differential that could run dry and lock up while driving and a crank sensor could cause stalling while driving. Both of which have been recalled. The prices on the Tacoma TRD Sport is $3,000-5,000 more than a discounted Colorado Z71 based on V6 with AWD on cars.com. Used 2015 models with less than 50,000 miles are the same price at about $30,000. So the Colorado has less depreciation than the Toyota Tacoma. The Colorado/Canyon have won quite a few comparisons over the Tacoma since the twins were redesigned for 2015. The Tacoma is old these days as well as ithe Japanese Nissan Frontier. If you want one of the most rugged 4x4 systems the Frontier has an older, more traditional system. Just skip the Ridgeline for any off roading or towing as they over heat v with mild use. As far as comfort you will have to spend some time in the seat to determine what is comfortable for you. These are not as nice and luxorious as your Toureg. If you want more comfort I'd take a drive in a Silverado as the new trucks are as quite as passenger cars today.
