poor compared to diesel see full BMW X5 review
2006 4dr SUV 225-horsepower 3.0L I6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
The 3.0L i6 is rather underpowered, and it's hard for me to squeeze even 22 mpg out of my X5. Most of the time, I get close to 20. Most V8 X5s from this generation get 16-18 mpg. see full BMW X5 review

It gets about 16 mpg in town and about 19-20 on the highway. For the amount of performance I should not complain but I would love a SUV that got about 30 see full BMW X5 review

2012 4dr SUV turbocharged 225hp 3.0L V6 Diesel
8-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Diesel makes the extra weight of an SUV tolerable. In 4 months of use I've been getting high teens around town and 29 cruising on the highway at 70-75. Slowing down to 60-65 puts mpg just over 30. see full Volkswagen Touareg review

2009 4dr SUV 280-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
I do not have a heavy foot and the V6 gas version gets only about 19-21 on HWY at 60 MPH opposed to 24-27 with a X5. I drove 700 mi (interstate) and averaged only 19 @ 70 mph. Not good! see full Volkswagen Touareg review
2008 4dr SUV 350-horsepower 4.2L V8

Very poor. The V6 gets barely 18 and the V8 gets 17mpg of PREMIUM. But then again you buys knowing, still disappointing. see full Volkswagen Touareg review
2006 4dr SUV 310-horsepower 4.2L V8

This car gets 14.7 city and 17.5 HWY. On Premium Fuel. But we pay the price for the speed, comfort, and security of the Touareg. see full Volkswagen Touareg review

14-15 mpg in todays market is not very good for an SUV with a V6. see full Volkswagen Touareg review
