We like the Volkswagen Touran here at What Car? In fact, that's probably underselling things because we voted it our MPV of the Year for three years on the bounce. 

Where the Touran really shine is in how it doesn’t feel that different to drive than the Golf on which it’s based. So don’t think of this as some sort of van with windows; it’s more like a spacious hatchback, with handy sixth and seventh seats that pop out of the boot floor.

Handily, it’s quite a bit smaller than full-sized MPVs like the Ford Galaxy and Seat Alhambra, which you’ll appreciate when squeezing into the tightest of spaces on the school run. But is it a better choice than similarly priced rivals, such as the Citroën Grand C4 Spacetourer and Ford S-Max? Read on over the next few pages to find out, and we'll also tell you which trim levels and engines make the most sense.

And if you do have your sights set on the Touran, don't forget to check out our latest deals to see how much cash you could save.
