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

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

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

TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Acura MDX

Acura MDX Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 In addition to trimming the size and weight of the MDX, Acura also reduced the size of the V6 engine from 3.7 to 3.5 liters. Thanks to direct injection the new, smaller engine is nearly as powerful (290 vs. 300 horsepower), and is even a little punchier at low rpm. It can run on three cylinders to save fuel while cruising. The QX60's V6, also 3.5 liters, lacks direct injection and is only good for 265 horsepower. Even though the Infiniti's CVT (continuously variable transmission) can hold the engine at its power peak, this isn't enough to compensate for its power and weight disadvantages. The MDX is noticeably quicker, if still not thrillingly quick. (It can get to 60 mph in about seven seconds.) Then again, fuel economy appears to have been the priority. In the EPA's tests, the 2013 MDX rated 16 mpg city, 21 mpg highway. Infiniti, aiming to top these marks with the JX35 did so by two mpg (18/23). A redesigned CVT shared with the new Nissan Pathfinder bumps the QX60 to 19/25. The new MDX trails the Infiniti by one mpg in the city, but tops it on the highway with a 27 mpg rating--tying the new diesel BMW X5 and impressive for a gas-powered three-row crossover. In real-world suburban driving with an economy-minded right foot the trip computer reported averages from 21 to 23. With a feather-light foot and good luck with traffic lights, 25 can happen. Drive the MDX hard enough to enjoy the snarl that kicks in with the big VTEC cam lobes at 5,000 rpm, on the other hand, and mpg falls into the mid-teens. Highway driving confirmed the EPA estimate. see full Acura MDX review

2012 4dr SUV 300-horsepower 3.7L V6

Gas mileage is not good. The best I get is around 20 mpg, and use 91 octane as reccommended. I've tried mid-grade 89 octane with no noticable difference but for $1.00-$2.00 per tankful, I'm choosing to stick with what is reccommended. It would be nice to have a front wheel drive only version which would save on gas, but it's not offered. see full Acura MDX review
