Have you ever owned a Volkswagen Touran? Did you have to purchase any replacement parts for the vehicle? If so, then we would love to hear about these experiences. Let us know how these parts performed by writing your review in the comments box at the bottom of the page.

Volkswagen Touran Overview

The Volkswagen Touran is classed as a compact MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle) and is produced by the German automobile manufacturing company, The Volkswagen Group. This vehicle was based on a stretched Golf Mark 5 to fill a gap in this class for Volkswagen. It fits below Volkswagens large MPV, the Sharan. The Touran name is a combination of ‘Tour’ and the large MPV ‘Sharan’. These vehicles are well equipped, well refined and have some good safety features. There are some good engines but these vehicles are not as spacious and cost more than some of the rivals. Does this sound anything like your experience of the Touran?

Volkswagen Touran History

The first generation (2003-10) Touran joined the Sharan and Caravelle on the Volkswagen MPV market, this being the smallest. Electro-mechanical steering was introduced on this vehicle which was the first time for a vehicle in this class. It had 4 out of 5 stars in the Euro safety tests. In 2006 the Touran had a facelift and was the first VW vehicle to use their new ParkAssist technology which uses sensors to park the vehicle for the driver.

The second generation (2010-present) Touran was built on the Golf Mark VI platform, and had many great new features including VW’s adaptive suspension system. There was a new range of engines made available. This version was more aerodynamic than its predecessor. This is the current version on the market.



Fuel Economy

The Volkswagen Touran has the following engines available: 1.2, 1.4, 1.6 and 2.0L petrol engines and the 1.6, 1.9 and 2.0L diesel engines. The most economical of the available engines is the 1.6L diesel engine which offers up to 61mpg. Which engine do you have and how does it perform economically? Always think of the fuel type, engine size and age of vehicle when considering fuel economy.
