Five-star rating for the safest and most protective family cars in the industry goes to the all-new Volkswagen Touran.
Arriving in December, the new model comes with a first-class safety package that includes an optimised body structure, highly effective belt, seat and airbag combination and innovative driver assistance systems. The Touran scored highly in all four key areas: occupant protection for adults and children, pedestrian protection and safety assistance, and highlighted Volkswagen’s commitment to occupant and pedestrian safety.
The new family MPV scored over 89 per cent of the available points in the important child protection sub-section. In the pedestrian protection category, the Touran was given a total score of 71 per cent with recognition of the Touran’s numerous engineering features designed to reduce the risk of injury to passers-by.
The new Touran is available to order now with prices starting from £22,240. Based on Volkswagen’s MQB platform, the new model offers more space, greater practicality and lower running costs than the previous model. Safety equipment includes airbags for driver and front-seat passenger (with front-seat passenger airbag deactivation and including knee airbag on the driver's side) and a head airbag system for front and rear-seat passengers, including side airbags.
