Driving the new 2011 Volkswagen Hybrid Touareg on the streets of Florence, Italy can be a challenge. Not that there is anything wrong with the newest and second generation of the VW Touareg.
No, the second generation SUV is actually about 400 pounds lighter than the first generation, plus the Hybrid Touareg will most certainly get better gas mileage when the official EPA numbers are announced before the American launch of the Touareg.
With plenty of room and all wheel drive the Touareg has always been a top choice for triathletes. But now that the all new SUV gets a hybrid drive we couldn't help but wonder if it is the perfect car for green triathletes>
Watch as Roman Mica tests the new car in both the city and countryside of Tuscany, Italy.
