Ooops. I meant to say Q7 TDI sorry about that! I knew I was driving the Cayenne Diesel, so I asked for a bunch of this category (diesel and hybrid) for comparison. I am not really liking the VW Touareg Hybrid. Only averaging 18 mpg (my X5 35d does better) and the brakes, with regenerative crap going on, are very unnatural.

Just about done with my Cayenne Diesel story. Thinking I like the X5 better (give up a few HWY mpg for better passing power).

I am fortunate to have unique press cars delivered weekly, but I own:

'16 BMW X5 xDrive35i M Sport 8AT
'15 Volkswagen Golf TDI 6MT
'86 Porsche 911 Turbo 4MT

Gone, but never forgotten... my E70 X5 35d, E90 335i, E46 330i, E36 328i, E70 X5 3.0si, E53 X5 3.0i.
