    Re: Here it is! Cayenne Turbo vs X5 4.8iS vs Touareg V10 TDi

    i'm not totally crazy about it, i am very neutral with music, listen to most stuff, but that particular song you played in that vid was catchy

    Re: Here it is! Cayenne Turbo vs X5 4.8iS vs Touareg V10 TDi

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for the review. Wish I was you with all those nice cars.

    One thing though... I don't understand how you can be so disappointed in the handling of the X5 4.8is? Neither do I understand how you feel the Touareg beats it in straight line performance.

    Needless to say I know the CT, but I have also driven both the BMW and the VW extensively, and I would say that the X5 wins on straight line performance to 200 kph (haven't tested them over that speed). The VW has a lot of low end grunt though - but I was actually surprised to find that even in such a huge diesel powerplant there is still a bit of noticable turbolag.

    As for the VW's suspension I think it feels like a boat compared to the X5. In fact it doesn't even come close to the X5 in terms of sporty road handling (even with the suspension lowered and stiffened). Off road performance is a different story.

    Cheers.

    we put the vw and the x5 next to each other and the touareg wins easily. will make video and show you.

    Re: Here it is! Cayenne Turbo vs X5 4.8iS vs Touareg V10 TDi

    I find that very hard to believe due to my own experience. But will look forward to your video.

    I'd appreciate if you did an acceleration test from 0-200 kph.

    well the speed limit here is 120kph but i'll see what i can do!

    i bet if we put the touareg FULL of people and the x5 with just the driver, the touareg would still win

    Stubborn and impatient as I am I called my friend and asked him to bring his X5 4.8is and then I went to a dealer today and borrowed a Touareg V10 TDI for a test drive.

    The results? The X5 consistently beat the Touareg from 0-160 and 0-200. By quite a large margin in fact.

    From 0-100 kph they are neck to neck, but when the X5 reaches 160 kph it is ahead of the Touareg. By 200 kph the gap is quite big.

    So I don't know if someone has decided to install a different turbo on your Touareg or messed with the ECU. Or maybe your X5 is not running as it should. Maybe it has something to do with altitude. I don't know. Maybe you should dyno both.

    But my test today - albeit not scientific using GPS - but strictly starting from a standstill and looking at the speedometer - clearly shows that above 160kph the X5 walks away.

    Here's also a link to a road test stating the same:

    i totally forgot to mention i'm 1400M above sea level, so it does play a roll in the x5's acceleration. but from where i stay the touareg walks away EASY!!! keep in mind that our highest octane fuel here from a standard pump is around 91octane(93 if you're lucky) that also plays a roll.
    i live with these cars everyday, i'm pretty sure which one is faster (where i live obviously)
