Dated technology? If you're referring to a synergy drive the Touareg Hybrid was not meant for fuel economy or being "green", in fact it is a replacement for a V8 gasser, a VW way of "sneaking" it into US. Considering that it is a mirror image of Porsche Hybrid (less clothing) for a $25k less MSRP plus the discounts you can get on it now, I'd say it's a steal of a deal. This thing is a wolf in a sheep's clothing or more like a warewolf since it can be both, an animal and a civilized decent MPG SUV.
