2010 Volkswagen Touareg V-6 TDI

I was a fan of the Volkswagen Touareg TDI when it first came out until I saw the price of the enormous V-10 model, upwards of $70,000. Is VW kidding? A generation later, and a super-sized dose of reality has given buyers this ample V-6 TDI that is more affordable, economical and logical. Our test unit, still at an eye popping $59,000, is loaded to the brim with options. Check your options list carefully and you can snag one in the mid $40,000 range. But not for long as the Touareg is again changing faces as a 2011 model.

Sure like this Vehicle. I hope to have one soon. Probably gonna need one thats right hand drive since I will be living in Samoa. Would have loved to have owned one of the v10 diesel versions. I would skip the bigger wheels auto manufacturers need to remember many of us would much rather have a smooth ride than a phat ride. I could care less about having rims over 17 inches, who wants short sidewalls in a sport utility? Nobody that plans on using it off road or that may have someone that is a curb rider, Car companies have gone way overboard with the big rim phase. Applaud keeping diesel as an option though, biodiesel is and should be a big part of our future.
The left button on the back of the steering wheel allows you to turn off the lights on the wheel when driving long distance and night.
