Crisp-angular front and rear styling, and neatly formed lines make the MPV a handsome looking package

We tested the 1.4 litre Touran some time back, and we did like how it drove, and how well screwed together the compact MPV was.

With the power curbs on our category A COEs for cars above 130bhp, the 1.4 petrol might fall out of reach to some.

The 1.6 turbodiesel delivers power sub-120bhp, but has the same maximum torque as its petrol stablemate (and torque is important here).

Exterior

Certainly a family favourite when it comes to being a compact-sized people mover, the Touran’s dimensions means easy steering around those HDB multi-story carparks, chances are, you’d have one or two in the multi-story at home.

Those notorious carpark ramps are easy to navigate, with the rear inner wheel easily clearing those low kerbs as you make your turn, with width of just 1,829mm, and a not overly long wheelbase of 2,791mm, just marginally shorter than Renault’s Grand Scenic.

Crisp-angular front and rear styling, and neatly formed lines make the MPV a handsome looking package.
