Volkswagen Touran: New Generation With Largest Trunk in Segment and Fuel Efficient Engine
|   Saturday, March 07, 2015
Volkswagen has presented the new generation Touran at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The German model benefits from an impressive luggage compartment, six motorizations, and a high tech interior.

Volkswagen devoted a presence at the Geneva Motor Show to the introduction of family patterns. After presenting the new Sharan, the Germans have prepared a new surprise addressed to the Family-friendly: the new generation Volkswagen Touran.

Just like the last creations of the manufacturer from Wolfsburg, the new Touran is developed on the new MQB modular platform that promises a reduced total weight of 62 kilograms compared to the older generation.
This thing happened although the new Touran has increased in length by 13 centimeters. Thus, much has been invested in the space provided to the passenger: of the 13 extra cm, 11 of them went in the wheelbase.

So, the Touran will be more spacious both in the five seat variant but also in the seven seat version. Furthermore, the new dimensions have affected positively the trunk capacity, now having 48 liters in addition to the previous generation, for a grand total of 1040 liters. It is the most spacious trunk in the segment, and benefits from new folding seats from which a flat floor can result in, very useful when you have to carry bulky items.

There are important changes under the hood too, where the Touran promises to impress with frugal engines. According to the VW officials, these engines will be more effective by 19 percent compared to the old generation. At launch, the new Touran will be available with three diesel engines and three petrol engines.

Those who prefer efficiency will have a choice between the 1.6-liter TDI with 110 horsepower, and the two versions of the 2.0 TDI unit rated at 150 hp and 190 hp. The 1.6 liter engine will be the most frugal alternative, with a combined fuel consumption of 4.1 liters / 100 kilometers, when it is associated with a DSG transmission with seven reports.

For those who get along better with petrol engines there is the 1.2 TSI with 110 hp, 1.4 TSI with 150 hp, and 1.8 TSI with 180 hp.
A new generation also means a new interior. In addition to improvements in terms of space, the new Touran will also benefit from the latest technology in the German's porfolio. This includes, among other things, multimedia system designed on an 8-inch screen with intuitive touch feature and compatibility with Google Android Auto or Apple Car Play.

With regards to the safety systems, the Touran will use adaptive cruise control, able to maintain a predetermined distance from the vehicle in front, accident assistant which automatically announces the intervention teams, and pre-crash system, which prepare passengers for an impact.

"We refined the design concept, reinventing it in places to give it a sharper look while retaining a strong underlying continuity. What emerges is an original with a much enhanced light and sporty look thanks to the long side windows and precise lines" declared VW head designer, Klaus Bischoff.

The new Volkswagen Touran will share the stage and attention at the Geneva Motor Show with its big brother Sharan. The order list will be open this summer and first deliveries will be made in the fall.
