Touareg Driving Impression

How does the Touareg compare with the Porsche Cayenne? It may sound kind of ridiculous to ask, but I think they share the same body frame etc.

I've also heard that Touareg will come out with a performance turbo in the near future.

Here is a road test of the Touareg, it's a nice looking truck:

Touareg is the same vehicle as the cyanne.. they are built at the same plant then the cyanne is sent off to get a "porsche" engine and transmissiion in it. They basically drive and ride the same accept you pay 2 times the price for the "porsche" model. Plus the cyanne doesnt come in the yummy v10 tdi!

Re: Touareg Driving Impression

Is the TDI available yet? I've heard it's a really great performing engine, very fast etc. There is a VW exec. in my town and he's driving the diesel. Being a diesel is it good on gas?
