With a huge range of seating combinations and storage compartments, the 7-seater new Volkswagen Touran is both flexible and practical. The ideal family vehicle, the new Volkswagen Touran is designed to fit around you, and with park assist as standard, parking will never be an issue again. What's more, Volkswagen's innovative BlueMotion technology ensures the Volkswagen Touran is friendly to the environment and on your purse.
The Volkswagen Touran was recently updated and is now more stylish than ever. New bumpers, headlights and grille at the front, new alloy wheels, and rear LED lights have given this mini MPV a more streamlined and attractive image. With slightly smaller proportions and less weight than its bigger sibling the Sharan, the Volkswagen Touran is also more efficient to run.
Buyers get a lot of car for their money with the Touran. The standard layout is seven seats, with three in the middle row and two in the rear. A five seat option with a larger boot space and a full sized spare wheel can be created at an extra cost. Overall, the interior styling is supremely comfortable and driving long distances with a full load is no problem at all.
Although the standard edition of the Volkswagen Touran is well equipped, drivers can opt for a higher level of luxury with the SE model. This has heat-insulated tinted windows, a highline multifunction computer, and Bluetooth connectivity plus an option to upgrade to leather seats and to install Adaptive Chassis Control. The top of the range Sport model has a CD changer, Driver Alert System, and 16 inch alloy wheels as standard.
The clever Park Assist feature takes over the job of maneuvering into a parallel parking space and all models can have a panoramic sunroof installed. Parking sensors are an extra cost on the standard Volkswagen Touran, as is the Bluetooth hands-free phone connection. A winter pack with heated front seats and window washer jets is also available. The SE Family and SEL models now come with Discover Navigation as standard and the S model is equipped with a Media Touch screen Infotainment System.
There are eight different engines to choose from, three of which are highly efficient BlueMotion models. A 1.6 TDI diesel is the most powerful engine available with the standard Volkswagen Touran, with or without the BlueMotion technology. Both produce 105 PS of power. The SE and Sport models have the option of more powerful diesel and petrol engines, producing 140 PS. The best fuel consumption is an incredible 61.4 mpg, measured on the BlueMotion 1.6 litre engine, and even the smallest 1.2 litre engine manages 44.1 mpg.
With BlueMotion technology keeping fuel costs down, an ergonomic design, and reliable components, the Volkswagen Touran is very cheap to run. Impressive cost calculations ensured that it won the Parkers Cost of Motoring New Car Awards 2010 in the people carrier class, cementing its reputation for frugality.
