The last great VW-HP sells cars, Torque wins races
by FLYNT TREG from Lewiston ME
November 24, 2018
I purchased this 2016 TDI LUX T-REG ’new’ with emissions update in September of ’18 after researching and looking for nearly a year. At nearly 22% off of the MSRP and with 1,000 miles on it, I’d say I got a deal. This is authentic VW engineering, including that unique and comforting ’thud’ you hear when the door closes. I am a brand junkie for VW, having previously owned a VR6 Passat and a VR6 CC. I veered off to a Volvo but am now ecstatically returned to my favorite driving machine. This thing is a tank, and while the horsepower may not seem as compelling compared to other vehicles, it is the torque that makes the huge and most important difference. As a friend said once, ’horsepower sells cars, torque wins races’.
I bought this to tow my boat and was pleased with so many of the safety and comfort features of this solidly built piece of German engineering. So sad they won't make it anymore, but glad I got one while it was still available!
