Being a spacious multipurpose vehicle, the Volkswagen Toruan offers a tremendous of practicality amongst many other features.

We review as what we believe are the car’s best features.

Practicality

The Volkswagen Touran offers a great deal of practicality and is arguably the car’s greatest feature. The seats at the rear are able to be folded back creating more space for storage. The middle row can also be folded flat or removed and contains a great amount of space for adults to sit in comfort.

The driver is able to adjust their seating position perfectly. When they do, the road ahead is clearly visible as well as the rear of the vehicle. There a is rear view camera as well as an automatic parking system to place the car into a suitable space (Available on higher trims of the car)

Storage spaces are present throughout the whole car.

Standard Equipment

Customers can choose from the typical S, SE and Sport trims when purchasing the car. The standard model has quite a bit of generous equipment included as standard. This includes air conditioning as well as cruise control.  The SE and Sport models offer more sophisticated equipment which includes rear parking sensors and the automatic parking assist system.

Safety

Being a family car, the element of safety is very important. There are front and side airbags for the driver and front passenger. As a standard feature, there are anti-lock brakes as well as electronic stability.

The drive

When Volkswagen Touran is travelling at a medium speed, the drive is very stable and balanced. The steering is mightily impressive with it being weighted very well depending on the speed of the vehicle. The car is quite easy to drive and handles very well.

Engine variants

There is a great amount of performance within the engines offered. The 1.2 TSI may seem small for an engine is supposed to power a 7 seater vehicle, but it’s 105 BHP is able to provide an adequate amount of power without the car struggling. The 2.0 TDI comes with either 138 BHP or 168 BHP. There is also a 1.4 TSI that produces 138 BHP along with a 1.6 litre TDI that is able to produce 89 BHP.

Conclusion

The Volkswagen Touran has everything you and more if you require a family car. A great purchase in our eyes.
