The Touran is the flexible automotive friend that benefits large families and businesses. This mid-size MPV features a classy and spacious cabin and an extensive selection of engines, which proved to be a resounding success back in 2017 as Touran sales continued to soar!
The five-door Touran is endowed with body-coloured elements such as bumpers and (power-operated and heated) door mirrors, each bringing a subtle sophistication to the exterior. Contrast is provided by black roof rails, a gloss-black B pillar, black front air intakes and a black radiator grille, the latter embellished with chrome-plated louvers. SE trims add 16-inch alloy wheels and tinted and heat-insulated glass in rear windows. R-Line grades come with 18-inch Marseille alloys.
A seven-seat cabin offers the driver adjustable seating, a height-and-reach-adjustable three-spoke steering wheel and excellent all-round visibility. A range of standard features include power-assisted steering, electric windows and air conditioning. With all seats up, boot space is 137 litres: with rear seats folded that capacity rises to 1,857 litres, check out our blog post now to have a look at the amazing boot space for yourself. A leather multifunction steering wheel is available with SE grades, and an illuminated panoramic sunroof comes with SE Family trims. R-Line grades add three-zone climate control.
Entry-level S grades offer a choice of three engines, including a fuel-efficient 1.6-litre 115bhp diesel unit which returns as much as 65.7mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 112g/km. A 1.2-litre petrol engine is a good performance option, producing 175Nm of torque and a top speed of 117mph. The Start/Stop system reduces fuel consumption and emissions further by automatically turning the engine off whenever the Touran comes to a halt.
Audio entertainment is provided by a CD player and DAB radio, with sounds relayed through eight loudspeakers. A 6.5-inch colour touchscreen provides an intuitive interface, and Bluetooth®, AUX and SD connectivity is included too. R-Line grades add a range of navigation aids. Electronic Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System and Hill Hold are among a variety of featured driving aids, and seatbelt reminders, ISOFIX anchor points and multiple airbags offer extra protection. SE trims bring front and rear-parking sensors and an alarm, while SE Family editions add Adaptive Cruise Control.

The first all-new Touran for what seems like a lifetime has adopted the latest, sharp-edged Volkswagen styling and takes on the look of a Golf Plus… err, Plus. The new seven-seater is longer but still only about 4.5 metres from nose to tail.
New engines make it more efficient, with well over 60mpg possible according to the official tests. Which is ideal if you're a busy family with plenty of practices, matches, demonstrations or shows to get to.
The 2.0-litre diesel is a vast improvement and the smooth 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol has its merits too. If you'd prefer a diesel with a little less power then you can look at the 1.6-litre version.
From the front only the roof height would tell you this isn’t a Golf; everything else is so similar. It’s a good looking thing from the front angles.
There is some stiff competition for the Touran in the MPV market at the moment. But the build, along with the drive quality and the tried and trusted mantra that follows the VW badge will ensure that it performs very well on the forecourts.
The new Touran is noticeably more stable and composed, especially around corners and there's a much greater sense of oneness about the car.
More good news comes with the seats and the space around them. Three sub-six-foot adults can sit in line down each flank of the car, and the front two rows of seats are nicely shaped and comfortable.
If you’ve got time to count them there are 47 storage areas in the cabin; almost seven per seat on average. Blimey. They range from elasticated belts to split pockets on the back of the front seats, drawers under the front seats and deep bins at the sides of the tailgate aperture.
With all seven seats up you get decent boot space, but lower the two individual perches on row three and van-like proportions are revealed
Growing families looking to upgrade from a Golf or even a Golf Plus will find the Touran a natural step up. The layout is very user-friendly and is likely to make everyday life that bit easier for its owners. Volkswagen also suggests that empty-nesters might get on board with the Touran’s sensibilities, and grandparents could see an advantage in having space for all their grandkids.
