Also, weight makes a big difference, I can see the difference in consumption with just me vs. the whole family.

    Vrekkit man. Stop posting nice V10s! I'm only a few months away from paying off my R5 and it's engine. You aren't helping keeping that itch at bay!

    Around 6.5 seconds 0-100
    Top speed I think is limited to 230km/h

    It's not so much the figures. It's the way that engine moves 2.5 tonnes so effortlessly, refined, quietly, comfortably and economically (for the weight and power figures)

    You can Google, and they are good for the time.

    And I am NOT a BMW fan, but in comparison, the V!0 is a pig on the road. Its a heavy lump. And I have driven many of them.

    And I owned a Touareg and love them, and almost every motoring journalist will agree with me.

    The engine is too far over the front of the drive gear and HEAVY. It has the dynamics of a Sea Lion. Sure its a consummate cruiser, but its not an agile sports car or a dune buggy.

    It is what it is.

    It was never supposed to be that,
    it never claimed / pretended to be that,
    it was never marketed as such.

    It is an incredibly engineered vehicle, heavy, safe, reliable and puts a smile on my face (even with 382 000 kms on the odo).

    Maybe I'm to dof to notice, but to me it is a pleasure on the road.

    It eats the miles. Comfortably!

    Yes, it doesn't handle like a beemer or as good offroad as a Sahara but like you said. It does what it does.

    A friend of mine followed me once from East London to Bloemfontein in a 1.4T Jeep Renegade

    He ask me why I was in such a hurry. I said I was just taking it easy. The car likes to go. It really felt like I was taking it easy.


    Oh, did I mention I was towing a caravan

    Touareg are best at eating miles and making you forget about it once there. They are that comfy on the open road.

    I don't think it will be good in the dunes, due to the weight (Ī2600 kg empty )

    Please don't get defensive. I agree with everything you say. Please consider my opinion.

    Its a big heavy consummate reliable powerful well engineered cruiser. I said that. I love them.

    I was responding to Bartho's request for information, and knowing what he does with his cars, a V10 Touareg is not for him.

    Do you really want o see a V10 vs Train thread where the train comes of second best.

    V10 tdi
    - pumpe duse injection
    - 2 valves per cylinder

    V12
    - common rail injection
    - four valves per cylinder


    Either way, like Fluffy said, they are too heavy for sand work. Their strength is in the size and effortless grunt. Paired with great suspension it makes them effortless cruisers and towers.

    This must be the best bargain of the year!

    I would buy it but I just bought a Treg a few months back.

    New spec with air and terrain tech rear difflock and low kilometers 110 000 for only R 250 000.

    This is how a Touareg shrugs off a flatbar at 45km/h

    A train doesn't stand a chance!

    I'm not a dunes kind of guy and doubt they will do well. But heck man can they tow stuff - which is what mine does all the time.
    0-100 claimed 7.4 to 7.8 depending on who tested it.

    I think the only better tow car in the stable will be a v12 Q7. Now just to find a cheapy somewhere.
