A three-year-old 1.6-liter petrol engine with 102 hp and 70,000 kilometers on the clock starts at 11,500 euros, a comparable TDI diesel is around 500 euros higher.

This version of the Touran has a converted two-liter four-cylinder with 109 hp and can optionally run on petrol or operate natural gas.
