Refreshed Volkswagen Touran is Available in Showrooms
2015 Volkswagen Touran has new design, more room for its passengers as well as more assistance systems and safety features to show-off with. The better news however is that everyone who has been eagerly waiting for it to debut on market can go directly to the nearby showrooms and purchase the new Touran.
The refreshed family MPV has better design, less weight and sportier attitude. All of this has been combined with various intelligent detailed solutions. The interior has too been completely redesigned. The cargo volume is of up to 1,980 litres, and this fact allows the seats to be folded down flat to merge with the luggage floor.
Technology Features & Assistance Systems
Another very cool feature in the new Touran is the second generation of the Modular Infotainment System (MIB II). MIB II offers maximum connectivity and includes the "App Connect" Car-Net feature. Other tweaks included here are MirrorLinkTM, Android Auto (Google) and CarPlay (Apple). They will make easier the integration of all different kinds of smartphone apps directly into the infotainment system. This system is also beneficial because two smartphones can now be linked to it simultaneously.
Furthermore, Volkswagen added an electronic voice amplification system, which at first glance might seem a little bit pretentious. But it is actually very cool and will make the things for the driver a little bit more comfortable. In details, this system allows the driver and front passenger to be clearly heard via the hands-free telephone unit and the speakers. They are connected to MPV's infotainment system, so when they talk to passengers in the second and third rows, there will be no screaming and shouting.
The innovative Automatic Post-Collision Braking system and PreCrash proactive occupant protection system are also featured in the newest Touran. And the great news is that they come as a standard. There are of course other optional assistance systems like the ACC Adaptive Cruise Control, Front Assist with the City Emergency Braking function, Traffic Jam Assist, Side Assist with Rear Traffic Alert and the Trailer Assist trailer manoeuvring assistant.
Although Volkswagen did not say anything about the CO2 emissions of the completely new TSI and TDI engines in the Touran, they stated that there are two petrols and two diesels prepared for the MPV. Their outputs are 81 kW / 110 PS and 110 kW / 150 PS, respectively.
2015 Volkswagen Touran is currently available in dealerships and can be purchased at a starting price of €23,350.
