Why not V-6 you ask?

Milage.... I love the touareg but i will not buy one until i can get mpg in at least the mid 20's. If i could buy a Touareg without and engine and put in a diesel i would. I do not understand what car manufactures do not think there is a market for high mpg vehicles!

do not understand how consumers are looking to get mid 20s

Mid 20's are not hard at all with a diesel! I bet the V-10 will get mpg in the 20's, imagine what a 4 or 6 could do. The best land rovers have always been the 4 cylinder diesels, and they are very heavy cars mind you...The fact is, all suvs should have a diesel as an option. Heavy vehicles are where diesels do best. The are now also cleaner than gas engines. Cleaner that Natural gas even! We are not talking 1980's GM diesels here....

TDI Numbers

Here are the TDI Touareg numbers.


Fuel Consumption
Urban 21.4mpg - 13.2l/100km
Extra-urban 36.2mpg - 7.8l/100km
Combined 28.2mpg - 9.8l/100km

This is why it is dispicable that this engine is not available to the US market....
