Review

The Volkswagen Touran is roomy, practical, very well built and good to drive. It's a bit more expensive than the Citroën C4 Grandspacetourer, but worth the extra – especially when you factor in the huge discounts that are available. The 1.5 TSI 150 petrol is our pick if you want good performance balanced with reasonable running costs.

get the best price

The most expensive and least recommendable trim; you pay a lot of money over the SEL for mainly sportier looks and bigger 18in alloy wheels.

This 148bhp 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine is the pick of the range, offering plenty of performance for a lower price than the 2.0 TDI 150 diesel. It'll revs freely and hits 0-62mph in 8.9sec and officially returns over 40mpg.
