People carriers are declining in popularity as families switch to crossovers which is a shame since the VW Touran is one of the best MPVs around. The new model has lots of space on board and versatility as well. There's a good choice of engines and some very good practical ideas. It has seven seats, though the rear seats are only really suitable for children, and is cheap to run. In addition, it is very well made and handles extremely well - which may be down to the fact it shares the same underpinnings as the VW Golf. The range topper is the excellent VW Touran R-Line which comes with a lot more equipment. The standard kit list includes a 6.5-inch colour touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity, air con and DAB radio. Other models come with alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control and satnav. Essentially, the VW Touran ticks all of the relevant boxes for families and those who like a comfortable and spacious car.
