2011 model year changes

The VW Touareg is the baby brother of the Porsche Cayenne SUV. The biggest news is the choice of engines: V6 gasoline, V6 diesel or V6 gasoline-electric hybrid. All of these are mated to a new 8-speed transmission, with the top two gears optimized for fuel economy. The Touareg body is longer, wider and shorter for an aggressive stance. 350 pounds have been removed from the vehicle -- again, with fuel economy the goal. The new available sunroof is 350% larger than the previous model, and a new premium touch-screen navigation system is available. Five new colors have been added to the palette: Cool Silver Metallic, Flint Gray Metallic, Toffee Brown Metallic, Night Blue Metallic and for the hybrid, Tungsten Silver Metallic.
