VW Touareg V6 TDI is getting more fuel efficient

V6 Touareg TDIAccording to a post at AutoblogGreen, the new Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI diesel has been improved to reduce fuel consumption. (eventually we’ll see the V6 TDI Touareg in North America, although as far as I know there isn’t a price or date.)

The V6 now averages 9.6 liters of diesel per 100 km (24.5 mpg) while putting out increased torque and power (550 Nm or 405 lb/ft and 240 HP respectively). Despite the power and torque increase, which, according to VW accounts for 0.8 liters less on the highway and even 1.4 liters to 100 km during the Euro urban cycle, the Touareg can make the jump form 0 to 100 km/h in 8 seconds, one second quicker than before.
