This is my 3rd T-reg and will be my last - I previously had the Lux version but decided to move up to the Executive - this changed the rim size to 20" from the Lux's 19" - just this 1" taller rim harshened the ride considerably to a point that passengers in the back seat went airborne over any large bump - I had test driven a Cayenne diesel with air suspension before purchasing the Executive - it had a pleasing controlled ride on rough streets - a similarly equipped Cayenne diesel bites 6 figures fully loaded so the Executive is a relative bargain - I hope that VW will once again offer air suspension as an option on the T-reg since the large majority are street driven
Exterior styling is superior to all other luxury SUVs - diesel engine torque is just amazing - fuel mileage is very good considering the weight of the vehicle - interior is comfortable and well laid out for convenience - whisper quiet on the road without any squeaks, whistles or chirps - panoramic sunroof with power rolling sunshade is effective and easy to use - one of most stable SUVs on the road in cross winds, road ice and deep snow
Please VW offer air suspension as an option since the chassis is near identical to the Cayenne - push button start should be standard on all models - tinted windshield with dark band at top is a must have due to glare on sunny days - syncing cell phones seems to be a VW problem throughout all model lines
