This is one fine highway cruiser that is getting 29-30 mpg while gliding down the super-slab at the speed limit. We traded in an 08 ML320 CDI and the Touareg is a far better riding SUV, plus it is quieter. You do not hear the diesel engine but you do feel its power. We pulled a 5000 lb trailer with power to spare and excellent control. This is no SUV wannabe, this is the real thing with > 8 inches of ground clearance and great visibility. This is a keeper.
Fuel economy, quiet cabin and driver comfort. Putting on 600 miles in a day on one tank of fuel and comfortable seats is a winning combination. The base radio provides excellent sound.
Memory seats standard. Updated feature rich cruise control. More cup holders in front and back.
