2011 Touareg TDI: Still VW's Crown Jewel?

My previous gen, 2010 TDI Touareg is getting 20mpg in DC Metro traffic. Lovin' the torque.
The T3 has a nice interior.
2012 XC90 R-Design | Ice White | 20" Cratus wheels | RSE
2013 S60 T5 AWD | stock for now
2013 JKU Sahara | Rock Lobster | 3.73 rear | DualTop Group | Leather w/ heat | 430N with NAV-TV
at $36k my 04' seemed like a bargain (well until the defects popped out like pimples on a teenager).. at $46k? No thanks... I'll wait about 1 year for it to lose $20k in value and pick one up used when my 04 wears out and the first owner works through the bugs

No thanks.....I'll take a base Q7 for $1500 more and get a WAY nicer car with leather seats standard. You can't buy a Touareg with leather unless you opt for the $3800 Lux package.
See for yourself.
I'm absolutely baffled by VW's logic.

I've been driving the TDI since mid-Jan, at ~7500miles. Very enjoyable ride...power to efficiency is abouta perfect match.
Here's a TDI vs. Hybrid compare: http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...mparison_tests
They actually pick the hybrid, whereas most folks have been seeing the TDI as the clear winner.
The Q7 is nice but we already have a 7-seater and I don't want that big an SUV as my daily driver. I was interested in the Q5 and F35 before picking the Touareg. Haven't been disappointed yet.
