If you want a compact and small MPV that combines style and good handling, you can include VW Touran 2015 into the list. You may think that this line is just the same as the others, but you will have a change of heart once you try driving one. Moreover, new design and different improvements will be added into the new variant so you should be able to enjoy more perks and enjoyment while driving one. Not only this ride is flexible for urban vehicle, it is also packed up with all the good stuffs and new technologies that you won’t think available inside such compact ride.
Understanding 2015 Touran
Volkswagen has planned to release their new VW Touran 2015 within the end of 2014, so the ride will be available in dealerships right by the turn of the year. New make-up changes have been done, covering new materials and new arrangement for the weight. The ride will be lighter, without changing the original composition or structure of the car. Although the most visible changes will be happening on the exterior shell, the interior cabin will also get the same exclusive treatment.
The front side is the area where changes are mostly viewed and visible. Thanks to the redesigned hood and front side bumper, the new Touran is now classier and more elegant. The changes may be subtle, but it does bring different atmosphere and look to the overall look of the car. Yes, the MPV is slimmer, but it won’t affect the space of the interior cabin. When compared to previous models, the newer platform does change the whole look. Not only the interior cabin will more comfortable, it is also more beautiful, elegant, and fun. Despite the compact size, you can expect generous space and great comfort when traveling. VW will use their Easy Folding System for the seats, so you can enjoy easy access as well as generous space without compromising the whole element of coziness.
Power and Performance
New engine arrangement has also been made for this new line. A new diesel TSI engine with 1.2 liter capacity will be used, able to produce 105 hp of power. It may not be much or speedy, but considering that this ride is designed as a family ride – not as a sporty ride that is able to reach 60 mph less than 3 seconds – such power and arrangement is quite logical and reasonable. You, as a buyer, will be given different option of choosing different engine arrangement, such as the TDI diesel engine with 2.0 liter capacity that is able to boost up the power up to 150 hp of power. Despite the improved power, you don’t need to worry about fuel consumption as VW is smart enough to equip their production with the technology that can help you. With Blue Motion System, you can reduce significant consumption of the fuel and in the end save your wallet. The previous variants didn’t have this system, so you can really expect a lot of positive and better things from this small MPV.
Reviews from the Experts
Most people say positive feedbacks about the new VW Touran 2015. For a starter, trendy choices, paired up with elegance and classiness, and combined with newest technologies and better platform is able to change a look – as well as the performance – of a ride. The changes are subtle, and yet quite visible – especially when compared with the previous models. The front nose is somewhat more stylish and fashionable, without changing the signature look of VW. The lines are sleek and more pronounced with a bit of changes and make over.
The interior cabin is more solid and somehow feels integrated with the overall styling and design – unlike the previous lines. And with improved exclusivity – but without overdoing it – it looks more modern and contemporary; with a touch of trendiness. The folding seats are truly smart and really help with the total arrangement. When not in used, the available space can be used to carry cargo, but when there are 7 passengers tagged along within the ride, it is still nice and everyone can sit comfortably. Keep in mind, though, that those 7 passengers aren’t for all adults as there are seats designed for kids only. Central console, however, is easily accessed and it is very easy to simply enjoy the ride without having to worry about bumpy ride or crowded space.
If you come to think of it, it is truly worth to consider spending $19,000 for the basic VW Touran 2015. Sure, it isn’t a sporty ride that will steal attentions and make heads turn into your direction, but this ride is a truly good family ride for loads of good performance and reliability. When you consider the price with the features available for your comfort and convenience, the numbers are totally worth it. Some people say that this ride is rather bland and somewhat boring, but since it is originally designed as a middle class ride with family usage and functionality, you can’t really expect a grandeur limousine-like vehicle for your daily activity.
Verdict and Conclusion
This VW Touran 2015 may be good in the family segment, but unlike other family vehicles, there is one thing that Touran doesn’t have: a sliding door. Unlike Mazda 5 or Ford c-Max Grand, Touran relies heavily on the traditional doors for the rear side, which is too bad because the addition of sliding door will make things more fun and provide easier access.
But there is no doubt that the interior cabin is very nice. Just like other products from VW, you can really enjoy the improved flexibility without compromising style and flair. Ergonomics are excellent, topped off with clear and easily accessed instruments and console. Not to mention that seat adjustment is totally handy, along with easy steering wheel. Expect quiet and peaceful interior cabin, as this is the features you can expect from such reliable name like Volkswagen.
All in all, if you expect easy handling with tough performance to deal with difficult corners, added with style and fashion that won’t make a family ride look cheesy or boring, the new generation of VW Touran 2015 will definitely deliver everything that you want.
