S The new VW Touran could be a public premiere at the Geneva Motor Show Celebrate 2015 and then go on sale. In contrast to the facelifts of the Touareg, Polo and Co., the revision of the new generation of the Touran is more obvious. The new front apron, the headlights in Golf design and the high nose make the model look beefier. Pedestrian protection is also sufficient. The Touran is also a little longer in length. It should also be flatter and wider, resulting in a sporty look. This inevitably results from the modular transverse matrix (MQB).

VW Touran adopts the variable seating system of the Sharan

Thanks to the MQB, the transversely installed motors sit closer to the front axle, so that the front end despite Stricter crash regulations require less space. The front overhang can be shorter and the wheelbase longer, which benefits the space and the proportions of the car.

At the same time, thanks to MQB, the weight of the VW Touran is reduced by up to 100 kilograms. The heavily revised, lighter and more economical engines also contribute to this. The diesel units are available from 110 (1.6 TDI) to 184 PS (2.0 TDI). The latter is particularly popular with Touran buyers. The petrol engine range starts with the 1.2-liter TSI with 110 hp and extends to the 190-hp 1.8-liter TSI.
