The Volkswagen might not be the most exciting thing in the world to look at, but under the skin it's a truly superb seven-seater. That boxy silhouette means it offers plenty of space even to passengers in its rear-most row of seats. But it's not just practicality that the Touran has on its side; it's quiet, comfortable and has a truly upmarket interior, meaning it feels far less like a utilitarian MPV and more like a luxury car. It is, in short, a top seven-seater choice.
