Volkswagen's second generation Touran was launched in 2010, designed to compete with the best that the compact 7-seater MPV class could offer. Underpinnings from a MK6 Golf hatch brought with them highly efficient engines that complemented neat design and general quality that in this era couldn't be bettered in the Scenic and C-MAX sector. You might think that ought to make it a good used car buy in you're in the market for a compact People Carrier with three-row seating. But will it be? Let's find out.
By the time this MK2 model was launched, Volkswagen had sold well over a million Tourans worldwide and established a strong following amongst growing families. All this second generation model really needed was a little more of a spark, both in way it looked and performed. It didn't really get it, but this improved design did offer sharper looks, even higher quality and a range of more efficient engines.
In this car's lifetime, it was all enough to keep it as the quality choice at the upper end of the compact 7-seater MPV sector. That'll give it quite an appeal on the used market too. Here, it's not an avant garde choice but it is a stylishly safe one. There's a lot to be said for that.
