Touareg outselling Cayenne in USA

According to our stateside cousins, the Touareg is outselling the Porsche Cayenne by over 2 to 1 at the moment in the North American market:

Sales for Dec 2003

Touareg 4,126

Cayenne 1,701

The figures for the whole year are a bit more balanced; but it does seem to contrast sharply with the UK - where my guess would be that the Cayenne is outselling the Treg at least 2 to 1, if not 3 to 1.

I don't know Cayenne pricing details for the US, but the Treg is very heavily discounted (like $30k US for a loaded V6) which may have something to do with it's popularity.

Apparently, the Touareg is now the 2nd most popular VW in USA...

In my not-so-humble opinion, the Cayenne looks kak, but the Touareg looks like a well designed car come off-road vehicle.

I wouldn't waste my money on a Cayenne, but as Dave says, that V10 looks like it'd be a stunner. Have you got around to having a test-drive yet Dave ? I keep meaning to, but as I'm not going to be in the market for a new car for at least another 9 months, I can't be @rsed at the moment.

Totally agree.. I'm not in the market for a £60K 4x4 at the moment.. although it would be great it would just get trashed if i used it for the boat.. so I can't be arsed either.. would feel like I'm wasteing the dealers time!! cool.gif

I'm enjoying my TT at the moment and nothing else really turns me on..

actually I'm getting pretty pissed with cars at the moment.. you can't drive anywhere fast beacuse of all the fecking traffic and speed cameras.. so I just get in the boat..

no speed restrictions on water so I just burn about, as fast as you like, cutting up all the sailing boats and stuf.. great fun!! grin.gif

I would be VF carefull.....They can be little Hitlers as you say, some Harbours have a 5 or 8 Kts max speed for all craft.....

Got the look of doom one day coming down the River at Brightlingsea (8 Kts I think) in full following gale doing maybe 20......Wild gybe mid river and then had to stop on the far side of the river to take the Mainsail down before going back across the river backwards......The only saving grace was that there were 40 other boats doing the same thing....
