Benefits Of A Volkswagen Touran
MPVs are some of the most practical cars on the market. Shaped to offer the most interior space for both people and luggage, the Touran sticks to the typical MPV formula while also managing to not be oversized.
There are 7 seats and plenty of space – and because it's based on a previous version of the Volkswagen Golf, the Touran's economical engines and technology have a proven pedigree. Packed with the latest connectivity tech to satisfy the whole family, a wide range of optional safety features also ensures your precious cargo is looked after.
A Modern Cabin With Plentiful Technology
Stable Yet Agile Driving
MPVs really are some of the most practical cars on the market – and the Touran scores highly here. There’s plenty of room for adults to get comfortable in the front or the back. The third row might be more of a squeeze for adults but a great choice for children, who may also be able to access those rear-most seats more easily.
The boot is a very modest 137 litres with all seven seats in place. All the rear seats fold to create a totally flat floor – and if you need to transport longer items, folding the front passenger seat creates a load length of 2.7 metres. Inside, there are 2 cupholders in the front, a centre armrest with storage compartment, cubbies in the roof console, as well as 1.5-litre bottle pockets in the front and 1-litre pockets in the rear.
Volkswagen has slimmed the Touran engine range right down, which makes choosing between them easy. There are 2, and both have 150hp – with the 1.5-litre petrol having cylinder deactivation. This shuts off 2 cylinders under light engine loads to save fuel, and results in an official economy figure of up to 49.6mpg. The 2.0-litre diesel is capable of up to 53.3mpg on independent tests.

How Does The Volkswagen Touran Compare?
While SUVs are popular, MPVs are still and undoubtedly practical family car with lots of room on offer.. The Volkswagen Touran’s most direct rival is the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer, which also has seven seats. The Mercedes-Benz B-Class is another small MPV, but it only has five seats.
The Citroen Berlingo, Peugeot Rifter and Vauxhall Combo Life ranges all feature models with seven seats, but as these are derived from vans, they feel a little less car-like than the Touran – which has been designed as a car from the outset. Unlike the Touran, these also offer the option of electric power, with up to 174 miles of range, so you may want to consider the cars as an alternative if economy is your priority.
Yes. Despite being a similar size to a Golf, this relatively compact MPV packs in seven seats.
With the rear seats in position, the Touran offers 137 litres of boot space. That’s with all seven seats in place and there will be considerably more if the most rearward two are folded into the floor. With all five back seats folded down, the 1,857 litres essentially turns the Touran into a compact van.
If you’re considering a Volkswagen Touran lease deal, you’re spoilt for choice in terms of trims available. The Touran range starts with the SE, before the SE Family adds useful kit such as electrically operated rear door child locks, electronic voice amplification function for drivers, and a panoramic sunroof. Touran SELs have climate control and a more luxurious finish, while R-Line models look and feel the most sporty inside.
Rear parking sensors with an audible warning and infotainment display are standard on all Touran lease models. A rear-view camera is optional on all models.
A total of seven seats, all in a compact shape not much longer than a Volkswagen Golf Estate, is impressive and even adults won’t be too uncomfortable in the third row.
To increase boot space, those most rearward two also fold into the floor when not needed. Optional add-ons for increased practicality include an elastic luggage net to keep things secure when on the move and a hands-free tailgate opening system.
Offering the practicality of an MPV, a Volksawagen Touran lease is the perfect choice. Their simple, square shape has space for maximum versatility and the Touran’s seven seats means there’s space for all the family and everything that comes with them.

The Touran was born before Volkswagen’s totally digital cabin era, so there is a mix of manual and digital controls throughout the cabin.
Every model comes with an 8-inch colour touchscreen, and SE Family trim models upwards gain navigation too. SEL and R-Line versions also get App-Connect smartphone mirroring, which allows for wireless Apple CarPlay connectivity.
One very smart feature is Volkswagen’s downloadable Cam-Connect app, which connects a GoPro camera to feed images from the back seats to the central touchscreen via a MirrorLink-enabled smartphone. Opt for a Volkswagen Touran lease deal and enjoy one of the most modern MPVs on the market.
In size, the Volkswagen Touran is a little like driving a taller Golf – which isn’t a surprise given its underpinnings.
There are only two engines to choose from: the turbocharged petrol, which delivers a 0-62mph time of 8.9 seconds, and the diesel, which is marginally slower but is powerful enough to tow a small trailer or caravan. The petrol models have a choice of 6-speed manual or 7-speed DSG automatic gearboxes, while the diesel is only available with automatic transmission.
Out on the road, the Touran is comfortable on most surfaces and feels stable with plenty of grip. Despite its size, the car is agility and body roll is kept to a minimum. For an MPV, the Touran’s also relatively compact, which aids its usefulness and ability on your day-to-day journeys, such as the school run.
