VW introduces new Touran

Volkswagen has introduced its new Touran, a seven-seat compact MPV which the automaker claims has been given a "dynamic redesign for 2007".

The model has been given a "fresh, modern look", according to VW, with striking new headlights, redesigned rear lights and bumper and a distinctive radiator grille.

Inside the car, new fabrics and a stainless steel trim have been used to decorate the cabin, while two 12-volt electrical sockets and semi-automatic air conditioning have also been incorporated.

The car can be converted from holding seven seats to five or two, with more than 500 seating variations in total, can offer up to 1,989 litres of cargo space and has 39 storage compartments.

Volkswagen states that the Touran also offers top-quality performance, as well as low fuel consumption, with a choice of two petrol engines, including an award-winning TSI unit, or four diesel engines.

Safety also appears to have been a priority in the Touran’s redesign – the vehicle now holds the top Euro NCAP five-star safety rating.

It includes six airbags and Isofix mounting for two child seats as standard, as well as an electronic stability programme and ABS with hydraulic brake assist to help prevent wheels locking.
