Performance & drive

What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is

Engine, 0-60mph and gearbox

The only engine available for the Volkswagen Touran is the 148bhp 1.5 TSI 150 petrol. It offers fairly punchy acceleration even with seven people on board (0-62mph takes 8.9sec), and enough pull from low revs to save you from having to thrash it hard to reach motorway speeds.

A seven-speed automatic gearbox is available as an option but a six-speed manual is the default. There’s a noticeable lag before the auto changes gears, which can be frustrating when you're trying to get into a gap at a roundabout.
