The VW Touran is roomy, practical, extremely well built and good to drive. It's a bit more expensive than the Citroen C4 Grand Spacetourer, but worth the extra – especially when you factor in the huge discounts that are available (visit our deals section for more on that). The 1.6 diesel and 1.5 petrol are the engines to go for and we recommend SE or SE Family trim to keep the price down.read the full model review
This gets navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Mirrorlink as standard, but otherwise it’s mostly style upgrades. SE Family is much better value given that it’s slightly less expensive than SEL but gets the panoramic roof that SEL doesn’t.
We haven’t tried this engine in the VW Touran, but we know from experience of it in other Volkswagen products that it delivers great refinement and performance, and decent real-world economy. However, it’s only available in higher trims, which makes it very expensive.
