The new Touran is extremely frugal:
BlueMotion Technology reduces TDI consumption to just 4.6 litres!
Advanced efficiency: The Touran now uses up to 27% less fuel
Advanced safety: First MPV with permanently active main beam
• Wolfsburg / Düsseldorf, June 2010. Volkswagen, Europe’s largest car-
maker, is making motoring cleaner: with the launch of every new
Volkswagen model, fuel consumption and emissions are falling
further. The latest example of this sustainability offensive is the new
Touran. Germany’s best-selling MPV is now up to 27 % more fuel-
efficient – thanks to engine downsizing, innovative technologies and
aerodynamic perfection. The 1.6-litre Touran TDI with BlueMotion
Technology beats the 5-litre mark for the first time, with Volkswagen’s
aim for the future being to get below 4.6 litres per 100 km!
• The Touran is the most successful German compact MPV and ‘the’
consummate family vehicle. Over 1.13 million units have been sold
to date. Despite the impending model change, between Hamburg,
Munich, Berlin and Cologne the Touran currently achieves a market
share in its segment of 47 percent! Across Europe it is also one of the
top five in its class. Ideal conditions, therefore, for the launch of a
new Touran generation, now redesigned in many areas. The body-
work styling now follows the updated Volkswagen ‘design DNA’.
The result is a completely new front and rear section, a restyled
silhouette, especial ly at the back, and wheels adapted to suit.
Parti cularly striking are the new, two-part rear light clusters and
the similarly redesigned headlamps with optional bi-xenon head-
lights, including LED daytime running lights. From a technical point

of view, its progressive systems break through class boundaries, as
in the case of the new, masked continuous main beam headlights
(Dynamic Light Assist), and the newly developed Park Assist 2.0 for
nearly auto matic parallel and diagonal parking.
• A full range of six new petrol and diesel engines pave the way for levels
of fuel economy and emissions that were previously in conceivable
on a seven-seat MPV. Setting the pace in sustainability, as mentioned
above, is the Touran TDI (77 kW / 105 PS): with combined fuel
consump tion of 4.6 litres per 100 km (equivalent to 121 g/km CO 2) it
sets a new best value for a seven-seat MPV.
• Also new aboard the Touran is the innovative entry-level petrol
engine, the 1.2-litre TSI. It is a turbocharged direct injection engine
delivering 105 PS. In the style of a TDI, it already develops a power-
ful 175 Newton-metres of torque from just above idling speed, yet
its combined fuel consumption is only 6.4 l/100 km (equivalent to
149 g/km CO 2). As an alternative, this variant is also available with
BlueMotion Technology – together with the Start/Stop system and
battery regeneration. In this case, values for combined fuel consump-
tion and CO 2 emissions are reduced to 5.9 l/100 km and 139 g/km,
respectively. High levels of efficiency are in general a feature of all
engine options, of which there are eight in total – a natural gas engine
(TSI EcoFuel), three petrol ones (TSI) and four diesels (TDI), with
performance ranging from 66 kW / 90 PS to 125 kW / 170 PS. Without
exception they are all turbocharged direct injection engines. And that
means lower emissions and lower fuel consumption, yet significantly

more torque! Naturally, all new Tourans fulfil the requirements of
the Euro-5 emissions standard.
• The specification levels of this multi-purpose vehicle equipped with
up to 40 storage options have been redefined. The base model is now
the Touran Trendline (previously Conceptline). How ever, this level
of specification has nothing at all to do with ‘base’ in the traditional
sense: even in the lowest priced Touran standard features include air
conditioning, RCD 210 radio/CD system with MP3 function, electric
windows in all four doors, elegant decorative strips in ‘Brushed
Chrome’ and daytime running lights – plus, of course, safety
elements, such as six airbags and and ESP (Electronic Stabilisation
• Launching with an even more exclusive package of features is the
Touran Comfortline including light and rain sensors; automatic
dimming rear-view mirror; chrome accents on components such
as the light switch, window and mirror adjustment controls; light-
absorbing side windows; comfort seats in the front; folding tables for
the second row of seats and black roof rails.
• The exclusive top model is the Touran Highline; its extra features in
addition to those of the Comfortline include Alcantara upholstery,
front sport seats, automatic climate control, multifunction display
with colour screen, leather-trimmed steering wheel with multi-
function keys, 16-inch alloy wheels, silver roof rails and front fog
lights with chrome frames.

• Now on the Touran for the first time is the RNS 315 radio/naviga tion
system with touchscreen. Other new optional features now available
include: the enormous panoramic tilt/slide sunroof, rear-view
camera (standard with RNS 510 radio/navigation system) and the
DCC adaptive chassis control system. Also new for the Touran is
Light Assist – an automatic main beam control system for standard
headlights and thus a ‘younger technological sister’ of the Dynamic
Light Assist system developed for bi-xenon headlights. The Touran
will launch in Germany in August. Over the course of the autumn, it
will then gradually be introduced to markets across the globe.
