VW once thought to combine a limo and an SUV, back in 2002. Now, those cars seem irrelevant. Especially in Europe. See its lifespan. This one came in 2010 and only got facelifted now. So it will probably be around for 10 years in total. This car is all about the old-fashioned SUV feeling. Big, high, and spacious. Comfortable due to adjustable air suspension. There’s an off-road pack, too. And the interior is more refined. The 3.0 V6 TDI is sufficient. It’s the most powerful engine, anyway. It has 262 PS and 580 Nm and feels very torquey down below. The 8-speed ZF automatic is just the best. BMW and Jaguar use it, too. How to recognize the facelift? Mind the new headlights and grille. And as a Highline with R-Line pack, lots of chrome and 21 inch alloys.There’s not much more choice, though there’s also a hybrid. 333 PS supercharged V6, electric motor – like the Cayenne Hybrid. That’s it. An X5 or an RR Sport would have this as the base engine. So: great tech, nice drive and refined, but not as appealing as a BMW. It’s a good car for the US, though. Less of a novelty for Europe. The Volvo XC90 is on its way, too. This is just not as interesting. + Very comfortable; Technically up to date – Interior lacks charm, limited engine offer .
