2012 Volkswagen Touareg
Compared with more carlike competitors, the Touareg's proportions, packaging, and seating position make it feel more like a brawny SUV from five years ago than a modern crossover. That doesn't mean Volkswagen is ignoring buyers' demands for fuel-efficient vehicles, though. In addition to a hearty 280-hp V-6, the company offers two alternatives to the traditional gasoline engine. A turbo-diesel V-6 produces massive torque and a fuel-economy rating of 19 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway. The gas-electric hybrid model isn't nearly as efficient on the highway, at 24 mpg, but it does add a single mpg to the city rating. If the hybrid's fuel economy is a bit underwhelming, its power is anything but. The core engine is a supercharged V-6, and when combined with the electric motor, total output is 360 hp and 428 lb-ft of torque. Both the diesel and hybrid powertrains offer all the responsiveness and refinement that Americans have come to expect from gasoline engines, and all three engines--even the hybrid--are rated to tow an impressive 7700 pounds. The engines are backed by a quick and smooth eight-speed automatic transmission and a compliant ride. The problem with the Touareg is that it's priced like a luxury SUV without the luxury badge on the hood. You can easily outfit a Touareg to be as expensive as a BMW X5 or an Audi Q7. If you can get past that, you'll find the Touareg to be a comfortable, smooth SUV with an upscale interior.

Is there room for an SUV to slot between the small Volkswagen Tiguan and large Touareg model lines? Volkswagen officials apparently think so, judging by recent comments made to an automotive media group.
