Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2

Going by its list price, the entry-level Volkswagen Touran is slightly more expensive to buy than the equivalent Citroën Grand C4 Spacetourer but is far more affordable than the Ford S-Max.

Don’t let that fact alone make your mind up, because the Touran is available with some huge discounts and, perhaps even more importantly, finance deals that are keen enough for monthly costs to be very competitive. Low insurance premiums and relatively slow depreciation will help keep expenditure down.

Reliability

Volkswagen has an average reputation for reliability, and came 20th out of 30 brands in the 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey. That was below BMW, Citroën and Kia.

The Touran comes with a three-year, 60,000-mile warranty that can be extended to four or five years. A fixed-price service plan is also available and a year's UK and European roadside assistance is standard.

Safety and security

Overview

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

  • Superb space and practicality
  • Tempting PCP finance deals and big discounts
  • Great to drive by MPV standards
  • Rivals offer more economical diesel or hybrid engines
  • Ford Galaxy has more third row space
  • Automatic gearbox can be hesitant
