AdvantagesWell equipped, comfortable

DisadvantagesA bit too unforgiving in some areas

"...definitely worth the extra. If Volkswagen reputation is anything to go by, it's set to last you a long time as well. ..." Read review

Design, Quality & Economy.

AdvantagesPractical, spacious, well thought out, hardwaring upholstery

DisadvantagesRear bumper can hamper the loading of large objects without scratching the paint, no spare tyre.

"I swapped to this Volkswagen Touran SE 1.9 TDI People Carrier nearly six months ago now from a Vauxhall 2.0Tdi Zafira 7 seater and I have not looked back since. The 'SE' model comes with the following kit as standard; - Climatics air conditioning (set the temp and the heat/cooling will adjust automatically) - Body Coloured bumpers, side strips and door handles - Centre arm rest (actually the upholstered top of the centre storage with a ..."

Tora, Tora, Tora, Out With the Boys

AdvantagesCompared to a full-size MPV, handles like a car, not a bus

DisadvantagesCan't carry 7 people AND luggage

"The "on the road" retail price of this model is £16,335. I purchased my car through an online broker site (broker4cars.co.uk) for £14,463, having taken a test drive with my local VW dealership who informed me that they could not match the online price. I opted for two "extras": metallic paint, £320, and an alarm, £250, so the overall cost was £15,033. It seems odd that an alarm is not fitted as standard, as this is essentially an estate car and therefore ..." Read review

VW Touran 1.9 S 105ps TDI

AdvantagesMPG, Build Quality, Comfort, Drive

DisadvantagesPart Costs, features

"I bought my VW Touran from new and have been very please with the car. We purchased the car because we needed a vehicle with lots of space for fetching and carrying equipment and the seven seat feature appealed to us. In terms of reliability the car has been faultless; there have been no problems with the engine or build of the car. I have currently racked up 14,000 trouble free miles in less than a year. The build of the car is to the usual ..." Read review

A girls view of the VW Touran S 1.9 TDI 7 seats.

AdvantagesCompact yet spacious, comfortable family car.

DisadvantagesNone so far!

"Having 2 kids and a dog we finally admitted we needed a proper family car, so having a VW Golf that we were very happy with and hearing good things of the Touran we decided to look into getting one. I am really glad we did as we now have a lovely shiny one on the drive and its great! It looks like a reasonably sized small MPV from the outside but inside its so spacious. The interior is pretty much the same as the Golf and apart from having a slightly ..." Read review

Excellent MPV, Highly Recommended!

AdvantagesGood Handling For a MPV, Good Features & Flexible Space

DisadvantagesLack Of Spare Tyre

"The VW Touran has to be just about the best 7-seat people carrier on the market right now. I bought the Touran as new just over a year ago (used an online car dealer which got me a substantial discount from the fourcourt price - definitely recommended!) and have been delighted with its level of features and general road handling. For an MPV the handling is exceptional, much better than many "standard" cars I've driven and certainly streets ahead ..." Read review
