a new gas guzzler

Yet another company has jumped on the bandwagon of SUVs. Now VW has an SUV, the Touareg.

  1. The SUV marketing campaign has fooled America back into wanting to drive station wagons (suckers!).

  2. I just want to say that the letters in Touareg can be reshuffled to spell "Er… a gout!"

    I will make a comment about gas guzzlers though. I thought my car was pretty good at 26-27 mpg, but when I was caravaning back here with Peggy, we stopped and got gas. Me, 98 Subaru Forester: &#367.76. Her, 92 Geo Prizm: &#364.83. My next car will be one of those little honda hybrid things.

    (Touareg. Sounds like a demon guarding the 5th level of hell or something.)

  3. I wouldn’t call it a gas guzzler. Even with the v8 it gets a fairly good 20mpg on the highway. I also wouldn’t call it a SUV, persay. It’s more along the lines of the new sports-semi-suv category that the Porsche Cayenne and Infinity FX45 fall into– pretty well between a full SUV and an AWD car.

    People want ’em, so, it’s not overly surprising that VW is putting an offering into the market.

    Me, I’ll stick with my 15mpg sports car. 😉
