The German brand is adding a new model to the MPV class, the new Touran R-Line. The trim level features the brand’s conventional equipment grade and comes with exterior and interior improvements.
The model is available in petrol and diesel engines varying in capacity from 1.4-litre TSI to 2.0-litre TDI, and with outputs of between 150 PS and 190 PS. Further, the car comes in a selection of Volkswagen’s BlueMotion technologies such as Start/Stop, brake energy recuperation and low rolling resistance tyres that will maximise the economy. Combined fuel consumption ranges from 49.6 mpg for the 1.4-litre TSI 150 PS six-speed manual, to 62.8 mpg from the 2.0-litre TDI 150 PS six-speed manual.
The exterior design features distinctive front and rear bumpers, radiator grille, and side skirts; plus chrome mouldings for the rear bumper, and 18-inch ‘Marseille’ alloy wheels. Unique R-Line badging completed the external additions. The cabin comes with ‘Black Lead Grey’ decorative inserts in the dash, centre console and front doors; a black roof lining and grey stitching on the leather-trimmed three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, which also features aluminium inserts and R-Line logo. The seats have contrasting microfibre side bolsters and front seats with R-Line logo on the rear backrests. Additionally, the upgrades are followed by stainless steel pedals, and unique R-Line sill protectors.
The award winning model, awarded ‘Best MPV’ by the WhatCar?, is now available to order in elegant R-Line for the first time. The automotive publishing brand said: “This new Volkswagen is great to drive, classy-feeling inside and has better safety credentials than most of its rivals.” The judges added: “There are cheaper and bigger MPVs, but none that so brilliantly balanced all of the things that matter to big families. Crucially, Volkswagen’s latest seven-seater is more practical than all of its similarly priced rivals.”
The new Volkswagen Touran R-Line is available to order with prices starting at £27,740 RRP.
