      @WhatThePresidentSays

      The porsche cayenne, Audi Q7 and the VW Touareg all share the same platform so it's all somewhat the same SUV. These SUV's were joint project.

      Very good numbers for an SUV, better than most cars (except for the slalom, but still impressive there.)

      And it stopped at almost exactly 1g?! Very nice VW!

      We used to own a 2007 V6 touareg .. Idid't like it's engine .. too noisy
      and the car was a bit lazy .. but this one is damn fast.
