Our first VeeDub

Vehicle
2011 Volkswagen Touareg VR6 Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 8A)
Review
Our Touareg was our first VW, but not our first SUV. Previously we had a Ford Explorer and a Toyota Highlander. When looking for our new car, we looked and drove several, including the 4runner, Q5 and X5. The Touareg, hands-down trounced our previous suv's when it came to handling, performance and comfort. Our '06 Highlander drove like a minivan compared to the tight feel and zippy performance from the T-reg. When it came time to choose, the VW experience, and price/feature ratio won out over our other options. 4runner - too much like a truck, and the price point when compared to Audi/BMW was perfect. Overall, this vehicle is fun to drive and gets good mpg for its class.
Favorite Features
We love the integrated bluetooth for phone and audio streaming. The entertainment options are amazing: You can put songs on the internal hard drive, there are two SD slots for MP3/digital audio, DVD/CD player, iPOD/external audio adapter, bluetooth audio and SiriusXM. The Navi is great, very intuitive interface, and having the additional full-color lcd multi-function display in the drivers cluster is a great feature. You can control most of the system from the steering wheel using the center display so you are barely looking away from the road. Voice control of the system is a nice touch. The headlights are great at night, especially on dark roads.
Suggested Improvements
The power controls for the driver/passenger seats are a bit too high, and tend to be bumped when entering or exiting the vehicle. Nothing major, but still, something that came up. It would be nice if the track/artist information displayed in the driver cluster, and not just in the main display.
