The Volkswagen Touran is now available to order. Priced from £22,240 the new Touran was completely re-designed, delivering a sharper and sleeker look. Showcased in March at the Geneva Motor Show, the new model is 130mm longer than the previous one which helped towards increasing the usability of the interior space.
The new Touran is designed to have a seven-seat layout and also comes with a different fold-flat system. The seats in the second and third rows, plus the front passenger seat backrest (from SE trim up) can be folded in a matter of seconds, creating a level continuous floor for easy loading. With the second and third row seats folded, the Touran has a cargo capacity of 1,857 litres and has the largest luggage compartment in its class. 47 storage compartments also ensure that life’s essentials gadgets can be carried safety and securely.
Touran engine range - up to 19 per cent more efficient
The new model introduces five engines (two petrol and three diesel) that are up to 19 per cent more efficient than the units they replace. All are Euro6 compliant and have power outputs ranging from 110 to 190 PS. The petrol line-up consists of a 1.2-litre 110 PS TSI with a six-speed manual gearbox and a 1.4-litre 150 PS that is offered with a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearbox.
More equipment, more features, more connectivity
The new Volkswagen Touran is the ultimate car for family. The entry level includes automatic post-collision braking and pre-crash systems, seven airbags, 6.5-inch Composition Media system with DAB and Bluetooth, air conditioning, roof rails and seven seats.
The SE models, starting from £23,630, add 16-inch alloys, Front Assist with city emergency braking function, front and rear parking sensors, iPod connectivity and rain sensor, while the new SE Family trim adds an extra-large panoramic sunroof with integrated lighting, Discover Navigation with Car-Net Guide and Inform and rear window blinds. Reflecting its family-friendly status, this model also features remotely activated child locks and a voice amplification system that allows the driver to be heard clearly by all rear passengers.
At the top of the range, SEL models add Adaptive Cruise Control, Driver Profile Select and App Connect, 17-inch alloy wheels, three-zone Pure Air air-conditioning with allergen filter and Driver Profile Selection.
