VW reveals revised Touran mini-MPV
16 April 2010
VW has revealed its revised Touran will be the "most efficient MPV" the carmaker has produced.
The model, on sale in September, will have two petrol engines: a 1.2-litre 105hp and a 1.4-litre 140hp. Diesel variants comprise a 1.6-litre with 90hp or 105hp, and a 2.0-litre with 140hp or 170hp. Bluemotion is available on the 1.2 105hp petrol and 1.6 105hp diesel with the latter returning 61.4mpg on a combined cycle.
VW said the revised model takes design inspiration from the Polo, Golf and Touareg and has a new grille, front bumper and rear tail-lights.
The Touran has the latest generation of Park Assist, which allows vehicles to park in parallel and end-on spaces.
It is fitted with seven seats as standard, the third row of which can be folded down into the floor of the vehicle to leave a 695-litre load space that can be increased to 1913 litres when the centre row of seats is folded.
Prices and specifications will be announced later.
