Volkswagen Touran Match released

Volkswagen has announced the VW Touran Match

Volkswagen has announced the VW Touran MatchThe VW Touran is VW’s answer to the Vauxhall Zafira and Renault Scenic – a more petite people carrier. Based on the VW Golf underpinnings, it is a safe and conservative – some might say boring – seven-seat, mid-sized people, carrier.

It’s hard to get excited about the Touran, with its boxy profile and drab – though comfortable – interior. But it’s very practical with its three rows of seats, which can actually be removed (they aren’t too heavy) giving you a very useful van for lugging gubbins around.

But the Touran is a decent enough drive, even if the ride is a bit on the firm side., and its build quality shows through in the distinct lack of shake, rattle and roll.

But now it’s time for the Limited Edition / High Spec /Value for money option, so VW has released the VW Touran Match. It offers £1600 worth of extras for a £500 premium which, assuming they’re extras you actually want, offers good value. You get front and rear park assist and the RNS310 SatNav in the deal. You alos get a multi-function wheel, MDI and iPod connection. You also get a new set of alloys, twiddles to the grill, smoky covers for the lights and privacy glass.

Engines are the 1.4 litre TSI, 1.9 litre TDI and two power levels of the 2.0 litre TDI. Gearbox is a six-speed manual with either a six or seven speed DSG ‘box depending on model. There is also a Touran Match BlueMotion.
