Volkswagen has revealed its 2016 Touran ahead of its appearance at the Geneva motor show, and there are some big savings to be had on current models.
It's practical and well-equipped, with good cabin quality.
The 1.6-litre Bluemotion diesel engine makes the Touran cheaper to run than many rivals, with respectable fuel economy and low CO2 emissions.
The Touran offers a spacious cabin, with seating for seven, air conditioning, alloy wheels, electric windows, DAB radio and cruise control included as standard. The driving position offers good forward visibility, with a fully adjustable steering wheel and seats.
The Touran isn’t as roomy as some rivals. Leg room in the rear-most seats is adequate on short journeys, but boot space is at a premium. Luggage room is good with them folded away, though.
At low speeds, the ride can be a little firm, but body control is good.
Should I add any options?
The SE trim offers a bunch of options as standard, including automatic headlights and wipers, front and rear parking sensors, Bluetooth, USB connections and Volkswagen’s Parking Assistant.
Several equipment options are available, such as satellite navigation, rear view camera and xenon headlights.
Metallic paint options start at £540, with heated leather seats at £2045.
