My only negative comment on this car: The car emits heavy exhaust on cold days. It happens as soon as I turn the heater on. Is this a common problem?

Warning - do not consider buying a 2.0 litre TDI Touran, there is a serious and expensive design fault. I am lead to believe that VW are aware that the alloy used on the cylinder heads is sub-standard, this leads to pourous heads and coulant leaking which is very expensive to fix! I have had my Touran for 10 months and really enjoyed it at first, until the cylinder head failed, now it is constantly in the garage. We now have an issue with the injectors! Again VW have come across this... (read more)

Never had any problems, has a golf engine, glides along the motorway, comfortable on long journeys, great for big families, always reliable. Best car we've ever had. Husband loves his Landrover, but does enjoy driving the Touran, says its quite nippy. (read more)

Best car i've ever owned, never goes wrong does stupid high mpg and goes like a rocket all with 7 seats. We looked at the zafia etc but the
Volkswagen, Touran 2.0 TDI Sport is the only one in class which has a larger back seat which can take 2 baby car seats and a booster, it can even take 3 child seats if required.

Having owned a Skoda Superb 1.9tdi Comfort for nearly three years, I was looking for the same car but with a more practical design. I had thought also of downsizing but my daughter went looking with me and assertively steered me away from the smaller cars like the Polo, saying, 'Dad, if you are driving the A9 regularly you need something with a bit of presence.' And we looked at the Touran.
'Ah', says our friendly salesman, 'we have one that's just a year old with only 8k on the clock'.
So we... (read more)

I am very impressed with the VW Touran. I didn't expect to be - I expected a more reliable Zafira but it is so much better. Two major differences
1. Can drive along interesting roads quickly enough to remain alert and interested without making the passengers sick!
2. It drives through traffic & twisty roads like a car not a bus.
All the family find it comfortable even in the third row of seats although I wouldn't put an adult in them for more than 2 hours!! On the motorway it cruises... (read more)

I've owned the Volkswagen Touran 2.0 tdi sport manual 7 seater for six months, and in every respect, bar one (see below), it has met my high expectations. Think of the Touran as a cleverly disguised bus that drives like a car.
This review is an update to a previous "first impressions" review I gave it after 3 weeks.
It is, without going into the details, economical, well built, spacious, and has car-like performance. It is also comfortable over longer drives, and is the only car I've ever... (read more)

I traded in our 2003 golf tdi130 for the touran, and was initially very pleased at the practicality, space and comfort of the touran. The fit and finish is what you would expect from volkswagen.
The touran doesn't seem to suffer from the wallowing in corners that the mkIV diesel golfs do, thanks to the new underpinnings, which are now shared by the new golf. Mine does have the sports suspension though.
My only disappointment, would be the new 2 litre diesel engine, which seems to be... (read more)
