The new Touran combines a distinctive-sporty appearance with numerous intelligent detailed solutions. For example, the interior has been completely redesigned. With its cargo volume of up to 1,980 litres, seats that can be folded down flat to merge with the luggage floor, ISOFIX fixtures at five seats and as many as 47 storage bins, the Touran is the perfect everyday companion – and not just for families.
The Touran is also equipped with the second generation of the Modular Infotainment System (MIB II), which offers maximum connectivity and includes the "App Connect" Car-Net feature. MirrorLinkTM, Android Auto (Google) and CarPlay (Apple) make it possible to integrate all different kinds of smartphone apps directly into the infotainment system and operate them using the large touchscreen. Volkswagen "Guide & Inform" also provides online services such as up-to-date traffic alerts and information on available parking spaces and petrol stations with the lowest prices. Another benefit offered by the MIB II system is that two smartphones can now be linked to it simultaneously.
Families in particular also benefit from an additional new feature – an electronic voice amplification system that allows the driver and front passenger to be clearly heard via the hands-free telephone unit and the speakers connected to the Touran's infotainment system when they talk to passengers in the second and third rows.
The new Touran comes with the innovative Automatic Post-Collision Braking system and PreCrash proactive occupant protection system as standard. Numerous other assistance systems are available as options. These include: ACC Adaptive Cruise Control, Front Assist with the City Emergency Braking function, Traffic Jam Assist, Side Assist with Rear Traffic Alert and the Trailer Assist trailer manoeuvring assistant. Other new features in the Touran include the automatic Easy Open tailgate function, which is activated by a foot movement, as well as a driving profile selection feature and high-performance LED headlights.
The petrol (TSI) and diesel (TDI) engines are completely new. At market launch, the Touran will be offered in two TSI and two TDI variants, with output of 81 kW / 110 PS and 110 kW / 150 PS, respectively.
