The Volkswagen Touran is a compact multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) manufactured by German automaker Volkswagen since 2003 and sold in Europe and other select markets. It sits between a gap in Volkswagen's model lineup of the Volkswagen Golf, which it shares its platform with, and the Volkswagen Sharan, its larger counterpart. In some regions, such as Japan, the car is called the Golf Touran. The name 'Touran' is derived from the combination of 'Tour' and 'Sharan'. Despite the similarity of their names, the Touran is not related to the North American market Volkswagen Routan. Along with the Renault Scénic, it is the most popular compact MPV in Europe.


The vehicle is delivered in five or seven seat versions.

Pre-facelift Volkswagen Touran

The Touran, launched in 2003, is the first Volkswagen MPV based on a Golf platform. It joined Volkswagen's existing MPV line up that included the Sharan and Caravelle (Volkswagen Bus). [7]

It can be considered an extended version of the Golf Plus, since their front ends are similar in size, while the Touran's rear overhang is 200 mm (7.87 in) longer (and therefore a seven-seater, while the Golf Plus is a five seater).

The Touran introduced electro-mechanical steering, a first in its class and for Volkswagen. It is able to vary the weight of the steering depending on the road speed. Due to the lack of energy consumption in idle it also improves the overall efficiency of the vehicle. The Touran was the first vehicle to use Volkswagen's 2.0 TDI engine.

The engines available at the launch included a 1.6 FSI and two diesel engines, the 1.9 TDI with 74 kW (101 PS; 99 hp) and the 2.0 TDI 103 kW (140 PS; 138 hp). The engines are EURO 4 compliant, except the 1.9 TDi when paired with the DSG (direct shift gearbox). The Touran launched with a six speed manual gearbox as standard, and a DSG for the 1.9 TDI Engines.[ citation needed ]


The initial test of the Touran in 2003, resulted in a four star rating for adult protection. [8] Volkswagen made slight changes to the Touran from November 2003, adding "an intelligent reminder for the driver and front passenger to buckle their seat belts." This allowed the Touran to be retested the same year, scoring a single extra point, and so giving the car a five star rating for adult protection:

The Touran received a facelift for the October 2006 Paris Motor Show.

Park Assist

The 2007 model year Touran was the first production vehicle in the Volkswagen Group to be released with the new Park Assist technology. Park Assist helps the driver parallel park the vehicle. Firstly, after having activated the feature and whilst travelling up to 30 km/h Park Assist uses sensors to attempt to identify a suitable parking spot (defined as 0.8 metres longer than the length of the vehicle).

The driver then stops ahead of the parking spot, releases the steering wheel, but continues working the gears, accelerator and brake pedal as advised by the display panels, as the Park Assist controls the steering to park the vehicle.


At the December 2006 Bologna Motor Show, Volkswagen released the third Cross vehicle designed by Volkswagen Individual GmbH.

The CrossTouran is distinguished from a standard Touran by its 17-inch alloy wheels, redesigned plastic guards which ape a crossover vehicle, and a 15 mm (0.59 in) higher suspension/chassis setup that is optional for standard Tourans in Europe.

All CrossTouran engines are EU4 compliant.

Second facelift (2010)

In August 2010, the Touran was updated to the newer Golf VI platform (PQ35). This included as new features compared to the previous facelift the option for DCC (Volkswagen's adaptive suspension system), Light-Assist for Xenon Headlights, an improved Park-Assist System that can also handle perpendicular park positions and updated infotainment systems. The aerodynamics of the car were also improved, the Cw improved from 0,31 to 0,32 to 0,29.

In late 2010, SAIC-VW released the new Touran in China. [10] Though its front was updated to the German style, the tail keeps the design of the phase II model. The electronic systems of this domestically produced car were upgraded as its relative in Europe. A 1.4 TSI, which can output 93 kW, was added to the new model.

New engines were available following the downsizing trend, a 1.2 with 77 kW (105 PS; 103 hp) and a new 1.6 Common Rail TDI with 66 kW (90 PS; 89 hp) or 77 kW (105 PS; 103 hp). [11] They replaced the 1.6 and 1.9 TDI from the previous model. The 1.2, 77 kW (105 PS; 103 hp) and 1.6 TDI 77 kW (105 PS; 103 hp) were also available as BlueMotion, Volkswagen's low fuel consumption vehicle program.

In 2012, the 125 kW (170 PS; 168 hp) engine was replaced with the 130 kW (177 PS; 174 hp).


The Touran is available with petrol, diesel and compressed natural gas (CNG) engines.

The diesel models of the Touran offer better fuel economy. Given the proper conditions, it is possible to achieve over 60 mpgimp (4.7 L/100 km; 50 mpgUS) in a diesel Touran. [12]

The car is delivered with a five- (1.6 only) and six speed manual transmissions, Tiptronic six speed automatic transmission (in 1.6, 1.6 FSI and 2.0 FSI (2003 to 2006 only)) or the DSG twin clutch automatic transmission; the 1.4 TSI, the 1.6 FSI from 2003 to 2006, the 1.9 TDI from 2003 to 2008, and the 2.0 TDI uses the six speed version, and the 1.9 TDI since the middle of 2008 use the seven-speed dry clutch version.
