More practical and larger 2016 Volkswagen Touran appeared at the 2015 Geneva motor show. This new Touran model is now much lighter, it has lost up to 100 kg, thanks to the switch of the MQB platform. This third generation Touran has a new sporty look and it would provide very comfortable and safe drive.
Exterior and interior redesign
The brand-new vehicle is 12 cm longer than its predecessor, and the wheelbase has been made larger for 11cm. The brand-new Touran will keep its boxy shape, but tweaks that include sharper lines create angular design that was previously seen on VAG products. The prototype of the car has LED headlights and daytime running lights, but it is quite possible that only the upper-spec trims will feature them. The taillights remain the same.
The 2016 Volkswagen Touran will come with more spacious cabin thanks to the stretched wheelbase, so rear passengers will have additional legroom. Trunk space represents one of the most important metrics of the vehicle, and now this new Volkswagen Touran has more space for cramming your luggage in its cargo hold. Volkswagen Touran did a great job when it comes to its roomy interior. The new model also includes a great deal of safety equipment. The vehicle comes with post-collision braking that is common in Volkswagen vehicles, but it also gets adaptive cruise control and autonomous emergency braking protection. The infotainment system has also been significantly improved. Pairing with Android and Apple smartphones enables the voice control through the interfaces of the vehicle. Practicality and safety now appear high up on agenda when it comes to the improvement of 2016 Volkswagen Touran.
