At Review Centre we have thousands of reviews of cars including other Volkswagen makes and models, both new and used, like the Volkswagen Golf, the Volkswagen Passat and the Volkswagen Polo.
Launched in 2003 the Volkswagen Touran is a compact MPV. It fills a gap between the larger Sharan MPV and the Passat Estate. The vehicle was originally offered with five or seven seats but now only as a seven seater. The look is based partly on the Golf, in terms of the smooth stylings and in Japan its even called a Golf Touran. One of its main selling points is that the Touran people carrier scores a maximum five stars in the Euro NCAP safety tests. All models have ABS with Brake Assist and Electronic Stabilisation Programme, twin front and side airbags, three-point seatbelts for all seats, active head restraints and Isofix child seat. The Touran is available with a choice of engines - two petrol engines and ten diesels - and in three trim levels S, SE and Sport. In 2007 it saw a major facelift for the Touran, with an improved look and better all round performance and comfort credentials. The new range looks like it will continue to be a good seller for VW. The 2.0-litre diesel TDI engines are probably the best, offering the greatest power and performance. The Sport 2.0 L TDI is capable of 132mph and 0-62 in 9.1s.
