Pricewatch: Volkswagen Touareg 3.0 V6 TDI v BMW X5 3.0d SE

FLEET NewsNet looks at how new cars taken on to a typical fleet might perform over the next three years/60,000 miles. Using data from used car expert CAP Motor Research, we benchmark two cars against each other to see how they perform over the traditional fleet cycle.

This week we compare two of the upmarket four-wheel drive vehicles from the Volkswagen and BMW stables.
