2011 Volkswagen Touareg HybridIf the Porsche hybrid seems pricey, the same powertrain — with a supercharged V-6 straight off the Audi S4 — sits in the brand new Touareg Hybrid. Except you cant do 97 mph on the electric motor.
Gas mileage isnt much better than the diesel TDI (only city mileage improves, from 18 to 21 mpg). The hunkered-down new look has plenty of Porsche and Audi cues for (somewhat) less money.
