Drive them both, and then decide.

There should be no reason to get a VR6 - it is underpowered for a 5,000 lbs vehicle.

Of course, no offense to anyone with VR6.
Our friend went from a buyback 2012 TDI to a 2016 VR6. She doesn't like the VR6 at all.

I test drove the 2017 R-Line Executive VR6 vs the 2016 Execline 3.0L TDI (both nearly identical trims)

I felt the TDI was a much better drive than the gasser R-Line.
