Volkswagen Touran Gets Significant Updates for Engine Range and Interior Styling
The latest edition of Volkswagen Touran went on sale in October stronger than ever before and it has never been so well equipped. The German company is now updating the engine range with two new units. In addition, there is also a brand new design pack, which offers more style for the interior. Here are the details.
The New Engines
The expanded range of Touran engines from now features two new powerful variants. The first one is the 180 PS (132 kW) TSI version and the second one is the 190 PS (140 kW) TDI unit. Volkswagen highlights that both powertrains have their "focus on efficiency and driving pleasure".
How does the Touran benefit from the two new top-of-the-range engine options? First and foremost it gets significantly enhanced sporting character. For instance, the 1.8-litre TSI, which produces 180 PS is capable of achieving a top speed of 218 km/h and the maximum torque of 250 Nm between 1250 and 5000 rpm. In addition, the 1.8 TSI benefits from the 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The pricing starts at €34,250 and includes the Highline specification.
On the other hand the 2.0-litre TDI gains significant increase in performance: its 190 PS coming from the four-cylinder engine reaches a top speed of 220 km/h, but it still manages to consume just 4.6 litres per 100 kilometres. This variant in the Highline specification and equipped with 6-speed DSG has a starting price at €37,150.
Extensive "Milano" Design Package
Besides the two powerful additions to the engine lineup, Volkswagen Touran will also benefit from the brand new pack for its interior, called "Milano" design package. Called "Milano" for a reason, this pack gives the Touran a "trace of Italian elegance".
Precisely, it includes ambient lighting, roofliner in titanium black and "piano black" inlays for the centre console, the instrument panel and in the door panels. The centre seat panels have a volcano-brown "ArtVelours" micro fleece, while the seats and the steering wheel com in "Nappa" leather. By the way, the front seats also have heating function. If we got you interested, the "Milano" design package can be ordered for the Comfortline and Highline specifications and has a pricing of €1,675.
