The Packs All Of Volkswagen’s Values A Mini-MPV For The Customer Who Appreciates June Neary Reports


seems nothing to stop the rise in popularity of the mini-MPV. rather ungainly little appear to have knocked of small estates on the head and are now about putting a big dent in the of conventional family hatchbacks. easy to see why when confronted a car as practical as Volkswagen’s Touran.

It something like a Golf in a of key criteria and doesn’t actually that much more. if you haven’t got a huge family to around with you, the space and versatility of the Touran it a very handy companion and the facelift has successfully diminished the factor.

The styling of the original wasn’t too to get excited about, being what you’d imagine a mini-MPV to look like. The Touran benefits from a far look than the original. restyled the front and rear the car visually and creating a more appearance. Inside, the trim have been refreshed a stainless steel finish for the being particularly fetching.

The campaigns in the upper sector of the market, unsurprising given its superior fit and finish. When and Citroen are putting a lick on sales-wise, there has to be a niche for with a decently screwed interior. But what of the seats?

You can’t bring a mini-MPV to these days without some sort of new seating for shiny-suited salesmen to demonstrate. The has more than one up its sleeve, the most practical interior since the launch of the groundbreaking Zafira. Available only in seat guise, the Touran’s system is certainly flexible.

The pair of seats, whilst really suitable for kiddies, can flat into the floor means that for most of the you’ll have an easily and spacious luggage bay. You can fold the middle seat of the row, making a four that can transport long like skis with ease. All three of the middle slide backwards and forwards on runners.

Quick release take care of seat and it’s good to see seats don’t weigh a tonne. 39 separate storage areas the cabin, you may need to make a checklist of what you left Included in that number are seat trays to keep out of sight, three fold-down mounted cubbies, a rear floor bin and more cup holders the Real Madrid trophy

Pockets in all four doors can a litre bottle and there are the MPV accoutrements such as seat that double as tables and -style fold down Access to the rearmost set of seats is easy due to the thoughtful way the middle row and slides forward.

One of the things makes the Touran so unintimidating is the that it feels utterly to drive. The dashboard is familiar fare and you’re not greeted by a steering wheel, ponderous or a lumbering engine. Once, no than eight engines available in the Touran line-up, seemed like overkill in a car sold around 10,000 per year.

Volkswagen has sensibly rationalised the selection with the current and has more accurately reflected preferences. The green pump is now comprised of the entry-level 101bhp and the 140bhp TSI ‘Twincharge’ engine. cars have been for decades and supercharged models longer: the 140bhp 1.4-litre FSI engine fitted to this uses both.

The supercharger at a maximum of 1.8 bar pressure, boosting the low end response where turbo can often feel lethargic. the supercharger has done its bit, the kicks in for high-end power. Touran drivers want an that drinks like a scorpion and they rightly to the diesel models to supply sort of parsimony.

Offering a decent slug of mid power, 162g/km CO2 emissions and economy that nudges the 105PS 1.9-litre TDI unit is to be the favourite of private and corporate alike. This engine comes in 90PS form it should win friends with its low tag. Should you be tempted by a more clout when you pedal with metal, can offer the impressive 140PS TDI.

It’s certainly a deal quicker than the engine, reaching 60mph in seconds, but it retails at around more which is a lot of money in price sensitive market It’s also worth the impressive 170PS version of the 2.0 TDI

The Volkswagen Touran is one of the easiest to live with imaginable. If it’s almost too blandly for my personal tastes. I prefer a little edgier and despite its of good ideas and obvious of engineering, the Touran comes off as a antiseptic compared to cars the Ford C-MAX, the Fiat and the Honda FR-V.

The latest has helped on this score, and if you don’t mind the mild bypass, the Touran comes recommended.
