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.

Next wk my 2012 TDI gets traded for a "new" TDI 1000 miles. Hope it's as good as my 2012. I have concerns about the conditions of various parts exposed top the elements the past 2 yrs. I have seen the car and it looks like a brand new car.

i am considering a '15 or '16. Many dealerships write: "Buy with confidence...approved emissions modification completed". What exactly did VW modify to the emissions system? I'm certain the technical explanation may be overwhelming... I'm mostly curious if the VW modification changed the performance of the Touareg TDI. Are the specs changed from the original 240 Hp - 406 Lb-ft. tq. - 21 city/28 hwy MPG?

thank you!

I bgt a "new" LUX at 15% off the mrsp. They are like "hens teeth" now. Dealer went out in the net work and found one 300mi away, had it shipped down and made the deal. I was trading my 2012 treg LUX which made it an almost even swap.

My wife and I finally agreed on an SUV over labor day weekend when we happen to see the Touareg sitting in the showroom with a sale price of 25% of sticker. Drove better than the XC60 and SQ5. For just over 42K it was a no brainer! Still waiting on my nav update, supposedly it is on backorder. Anyone else get a 2018 nav update yet?

My 2012 TDI never did have a update done to it and I didn't notice any issue when using the nav mode. My 2016 won't have one either,unless it hinders my Nav performance.
