What's the used Volkswagen Touran like?
The Volkswagen Touran is VW's compact MPV with a choice of five or seven seats (the latter was a no-cost option when the car was new).
One of its biggest strengths is that it's great to drive, with balanced handling. The steering assistance is light round town, but it gets heavier as you increase speed, giving just the right amount of feedback. Body control through the corners is excellent but the downside is a firm ride. The cabin is quiet, though, even with the diesel engines under the bonnet.
Among the Touran's other strengths is its versatile seating layout, with a spacious middle row that folds, slides or comes out very easily. The third row is fine for children, and adults won't moan if the journey is short, but it's not somewhere they'd want to spend too much time.
The only real complaint is that the cabin lacks any design flair. But if you just want a tool to do a job (and that job is moving people), the Touran could well fit the bill.
