Car pool? Lift club? Watch this space - VW Touran

2012-04-20 11:01

Looks: The Touran is like the love child of the Kombi and Toureg SUV, with its chrome grille and bulky halogen headlights. And although it looks compact from the outside, it can fit seven people with ease.

Comfort: Whether you’re the co-pilot up front, in the traditional back seat or the optional third row, seating is comfortable. But the back row might be a tight fit for the lanky, so it’s best to save it for kids or petite friends.

Likes: The compartments to store loose change, keys, sunglasses and other odd bits I usually carry on my person because I seldom have a handbag over my arm. The eight-speaker sound system and the flat-folding seats at the back are also definite perks.

Dislikes: That all the real niceties are optional. If you hanker after the nappa leather seats, the full panoramic sunroof or even the Bluetooth connectivity kit, you’ll have to fork out extra cash.

Price: From R263 500
