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
2011 4dr SUV supercharged 380hp 3.0L V6 Hybrid

GREAT Economy. It is a game to see how high I can get up to. Last evening in a 40 minute local drive 31 mpg see full Volkswagen Touareg review
2011 4dr SUV turbocharged 225hp 3.0L V6 Diesel

Like any diesel, it is always above EPA rating. No complaints at all. see full Volkswagen Touareg review
2007 4dr SUV turbocharged 310hp 4.9L V10 Diesel
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
All that diesel power and I get 25 mpg going 80 mph on the highway. 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
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
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
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
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
2004 4dr SUV 220-horsepower 3.2L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
14-15 mpg in todays market is not very good for an SUV with a V6. see full Volkswagen Touareg review
2004 4dr SUV 310-horsepower 4.2L V8

14-16 mpg light loads around town; 6-9 when towing. see full Volkswagen Touareg review

2013 4dr SUV turbocharged 211hp 2.0L I4

I have calculated my gas using the onboard computer a few different times in mixed driving and am getting a consistent 25/26 mpg. That's without hard acceleration or driving above 70 MPH on the highway. see full Audi Q5 review

We initially went in looking for a commuter vehicle with High mpg... but the sport they had jumped out at us and we were on the hunt for one... in the wife's daily 45 mile drive to work she's averaging 20 mpg which is comparable to the Audi's 4 cylinder and my truck's 8 cylinder. see full Audi Q5 review

I worry about escalating gas prices here in CA, but I got about 23 mpg in Europe and hope for that here. Not great, but close to the turbo and if people push the turbo to make up for the lesser power, as I would, the mileage is a wash. see full Audi Q5 review
