First drive: Volkswagen


The second generation of quietly popular Touran people carrier is more of a facelift rather than an model, with crisper and a new range of frugal engines. this be enough for the seven-seater to compete in a market sector at the seams with talented AOL Cars spent a week one to find out.

VW’s in the compact MPV market, which seating for seven for those rather not drive around in the (and more van-like) It’s got a large 1913 boot, which in standard MPV drops to a piddly 121 litres then rearmost seats are in and is styled in the same contemporary but way as the rest of the VW range.

What’s under the bonnet?

A selection of VW’s excellent four-cylinder engines are on offer. In the camp there is the 104bhp and a 138bhp 1.4. While a sized engine may seem out of its in a car as large as the Touran, a 0-60mph of 11.9 seconds from the is at least credible, if not quick. A torque band also that once underway, the motor doesn’t struggle to up with the demands of give-and-take and should definitely be considered if looking at entry-level models. Of the the 105bhp 1.6-litre of our test car a good all rounder, with power to make light of the urban grind, while impressively refined and returning fuel economy at a motorway If that isn’t quite power, a 2.0-litre

diesel is also available, in and 175bhp states of tune.

What’s the spec like?

The is available in three trim S, SE and Sport. All models come niceties such as cruise alloy wheels, remote locking, eight-speaker digital and a third row of seats that flat into the boot Mid range SE models are further with tinted windows, alloys, a leather wrapped wheel and parking sensors and rear. There is little to distinguish range-topping sport besides the addition of a pair of fog lights mounted in the front The interior is lifted by more bolstered Sports seats, a interface stereo with changer and dual-zone climate Our test car was optionally specified some high quality including a DVD based sat-nav and camera, the latter of which was a tad given the plethora of sensors around the car. Go for one of the Bluemotion options and you’ll also get fuel-saving tech like start-stop, which cuts the when at a standstill, and battery which uses the energy wasted during braking to the car’s battery.

Buyers in this market are for choice, with manufacturers something for everyone, regardless of priorities. Want to make a statement? Consider the chic Grand C4 Picasso. If a generous of standard equipment and the longest currently available are more of a then the Kia Carens is the one for you. If you a convincing blend of style, and driver appeal, then the Ford S-Max should be on your shortlist. We’d you have a thorough look at any purchase, particularly if you plan to use the seats regularly, as you may find not as spacious

as you may have thought.
