With a double curve to the underside of the unit, it’s a welcome from the anonymous blobs to the old Touran.

Move round to the rear and spot even more alterations. Redesigned rear clusters and a completely different assembly give it a more hunkered-down appearance. Indoors, are new trims and stainless steel that lifts the otherwise colour scheme. An MP3 compatible player has also been so you had better get onto iTunes and organising your playlists.
