Volkswagen Touran

The Volkswagen Touran is a compact MPV based on a vertically-stretched fifth generation Volkswagen Golf and sold in Europe and other select markets. It was launched in 2003 to fill a perceived gap in Volkswagen’s model lineup below the Sharan large MPV. The vehicle was originally delivered in five- or seven-seat versions, but the five seat version is no longer available in some markets.

It can be considered an extended version of the Golf Plus. since their front ends are similar in size, while the Touran’s rear overhang is 200#160;mm (7.9#160;in) longer (and therefore a seven-seater, while the Golf Plus is a five-seater). In some regions, such as Japan, the car is called Golf Touran.
