Volkswagen Touareg Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2012 4dr SUV turbocharged 225hp 3.0L V6 Diesel 8-sp 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.
2011 4dr SUV supercharged 380hp 3.0L V6 Hybrid 8-sp shiftable automatic AWD 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
2007 4dr SUV turbocharged 310hp 4.9L V10 Diesel 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD w/low range All that diesel power and I get 25 mpg going 80 mph on the highway.
Volkswagen Touareg Fuel Economy: Cons
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2009 4dr SUV 280-hp 3.6L V6 8-sp shiftable automatic AWD 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!
2008 4dr SUV supercharged 380hp 3.0L V6 Hybrid 8-sp shiftable automatic AWD Very poor. The V6 gets barely 18 and the V8 gets 17mpg of PREMIUM. But then again you buys knowing, still disappointing.
2006 4dr SUV supercharged 380hp 3.0L V6 Hybrid 8-sp shiftable automatic AWD 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.
2004 4dr SUV supercharged 380hp 3.0L V6 Hybrid 8-sp shiftable automatic AWD 14-16 mpg light loads around town; 6-9 when towing.
2004 4dr SUV 280-hp 3.6L V6 8-sp shiftable automatic AWD 14-15 mpg in todays market is not very good for an SUV with a V6.
