Introduction

There is actually more car in the Touran as compared to its Japanese counterparts.

Funny title, and why would I say that? The compact MPV is really the car that the man-in-the-street  looks for when he wants to haul the family plus the in-laws. Smaller than the full-sized MPV, they are usually about the same in size as compact class cars that the manufacturer has available.

The Touran is Volkswagen’s offering to this segment. A compact-sized MPV about the size of a Jetta, Keeping the likes of the Honda and Toyota’s respective Jade and Wish offerings on their toes.  

While the Honda has gone the direction of making their car more premium and for the first time, introducing a force-fed engine to a mainstream model, Toyota has kept to the sound values of quality and reliability with their Wish. The Touran however, is a fresh change.
