Five of the best: Volkswagen Touran

Volkswagen has announced the next generation of its popular Touran MPV. Based on the MQB architecture platform, the new Touran will also boast new engine options which, VW claims, are up to 19% more economical. Here are five of the highlights

 

 MPV meets MQB

The completely redeveloped Touran is the first MPV to be based on VW’s MQB architecture. The modular construction strategy for transverse, front-engined, front-wheel-drive vehicles underpins a number of the Group’s vehicles, including the Mk7 Golf and the Audi A3, but the Touran marks the first MPV application.

There are six engine options...
The Touran will have three gasoline engine options (offering 110ps, 150ps and 180ps) and three diesel units (boasting 110ps, 150ps and 190ps) for buyers to choose from.

...and they’re less thirsty
The new Touran will enjoy a major reduction in fuel consumption – VW claims that the TSI and TDI engines are up to 19% more economical. The most frugal of the bunch, the 110ps 1.6-liter TDI, records figures of just 4.1l/100km when mated with a 7-speed DSG. The most efficient gasoline, the 150ps 1.4-liter TSI will do 5.4l/100km when mated to the same gearbox.

Power is up…
The baseline gasoline engine, the 1.2-liter TSI, ups the output to 110ps, an increase of 5ps over its predecessor. The 1.2 TSI BlueMotion engine comes with a 6-speed manual as standard. The 150ps 1.4-liter TSI and the 180ps 1.8-liter TSI both add 10ps to their previous incarnations. The 1.6-liter TDI engine adds 5ps to its predecessor, while the 2-liter TDI increases output by 10ps. The most powerful engine, the 190ps 2-liter TDI, is a similar power unit to the one found in the Golf GTD.

…as is efficiency
All models of the new Touran will include stop/start systems as standard, and will include brake energy recuperation systems to regenerate the battery.
