My First Toureg TDI w/lux package
By aakdeniz on


2012 Volkswagen Touareg TDI Lux 4dr SUV AWD w/Prod. End 10/11 (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 8A)


I have been driving BMWs for the last 25 years including an X5, I was on my way to get a 2012 X5 and decided to checkout the Toureg on my way to BMW dealership. I am well aware of the latest technologies especially on BMWs. Well guess what? I was so impressed with the Diesel Toureg with Lux package that I ended up buying one that day. Gas milage, technology options, safety features, interior room and the feel of driving is impressive (i am getting 30mph highway, 24 city and 26.7 combined). Make no mistake- for almost $18k less than a comparative BMW X5, this car is the best buy from every perspective. Dealer experience was as good as a BMW dealership. The car is perfect after 2k of driving

Best Features

8 speed transmission, fantastic suspension system, gas milage, 406ft-lbs of torque and can tow 7800 lbs. I already sold my truck and bought a small trailer - Do not get the Toureg TDI without the tow package - you will be dissapointed one day if you dont get the tow package. I towed 3000 or so lbs. of weight few times and the rpm did not go above 2000 at all - very impressive.

Worst Features

The fron seats can have better hip support. The steering wheel can be power controlled. The coffee cup holders can have a sliding cover.
