While highly functional, the Touran is also a visually attractive vehicle, sharing many characteristics with Volkswagen's smaller models. Sweeping headlamps and a minimalistic grille feature at the front, complemented by alloy wheels, body-coloured bumpers and mirrors, and roof bars. There’s even a panoramic sunroof available that lets the cabin fill with natural light for an added sense of comfort.
The cabin accommodates seven comfortably, offering superb head and leg room even when all seats are occupied by adults. The cavernous boot includes a convenient storage bin hidden away in the floor and, with more than 500 seat combinations available, storage capacity jumps from 121 litres with all seats up to 1,989 with all folded flat. With a simple instrument panel and intuitively designed centre console, your attention can remain fully on the road, as controls can be navigated by touch alone.
Engine options in the new Touran include Euro 6-compliant petrol and diesel models, with high levels of torque enabling you to pull away with a minimum of fuss. There’s also impressive fuel economy available, while CO2 emissions are kept as low as possible for a model of this size.
The variety of safety systems provided guarantees maximum protection. Active additions include Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Assist, Front Assist and even Trailer Assist should you so require, all of which combine many advanced technologies to prevent accidents happening. In the unlikely event that one should occur, strategically placed airbags, three-point seatbelts, head restraints and ISOFIX child seat preparations minimise the impact.
When selecting the Composition Media Infotainment System, you will be able to access the Touran’s Car-Net App-Connect feature that presents media streaming apps such as Spotify and Apple Music for complete in-car entertainment. Additional technology includes climate control options, cruise control for maintaining a constant speed to be set for motorway journeys, and power-assisted steering for effortless manoeuvrability.
