2012 Volkswagen Toureg Supercharged Hybrid
The Bottom Line: $61,110
Fuel Economy: 20 city/24 highway
There's a lot of Audi in this hybrid SUV, including the three-liter, 333-horsepower supercharged V6 from the S4 sedan. In the Touareg, it's paired to a 47-horsepower electric motor for a whopping 380 horsepower. So this is another big and expensive European hybrid that emphasizes performance over fuel economy. But it's definitely a road rocket. According to CNET, "With the transmission in Sport mode and a lead foot on the gas pedal, every bit of that power is felt as the Touareg rockets forward." A Prius won't do that, but a Prius will also deliver a combined fuel economy of 50 mpg.
