Volkswagen has announced a power upgrade for its Touareg 3.0 TDI.
Despite no change in its price, the $74,990 diesel 4WD will be available early next year with more power and torque.
Up 11kW and 50Nm, the new motor now stands at a respectable 176kW and a stump pulling 550Nm, eclipsing its cousin, the Q7. No word from Audi yet, as to whether its car will follow suit.
With that much torque and fuel economy on offer, you have to wonder why anyone would bother with the identically priced petrol V6.
