Re: 2014 diesel production

It looks like 44mpg is on the EU cycle. Translated to US would probably be at 36mpg give or take. Still not bad for a vehicle that size

Re: GC Diesel vs. V6 vs. V8 vs. Touareg TDI

The Motor Trend article states that the CRD 0-60 is 7.8 seconds which is 0.4 seconds faster than 8.2. If it were 0.4 seconds slower then it would be 8.6 seconds.
