The Touareg TDI features a turbodiesel 3.0-litre V6 that develops 221 horsepower and 407 lb-ft of torque. This clean diesel engine meets the Tier 2/Bin 5 standards, just like the 2.0-litre unit found in the Jetta sedan and wagon.

Towing capacity for the diesel Touareg is rated at 7,716 lbs or 3,500 kg, and the truck can reach 96 km/h (60 mph) in 8.5 seconds. The four-wheel drive system and air suspension are also part of the package.

Look for the Touareg TDI in dealerships this spring.
