Top Car's Wayne Batty says goodbye to his Renault Clio. It’s not a soppy farewell but the little 'automatique' did its maker proud.

Upgraded VW Touran here

2007-06-04 08:59
Volkswagen's bland but reliable Touran family MPV has been tweaked.

The functional family van - available here with two engine derivatives and two specification levels - has had its appearance tweaked, with the most obvious change being the new headlight cluster and grille design.

Trendline models now also feature black front scuff strips, black radiator grille with chrome surrounds for the badging and new 16-inch wheels.

Interior changes for the Trendline include a three-spoke steering wheel, metal finish dashboard and inserts, anthracite or light blue trim and a radio with MP3 functionality.

Highline exterior specifications add chromed front and side scuff strips and differently styled 16-inch alloys on that of the Trendline.

Its interior gains "real alloy" facia trim, anthracite, Art Grey or Latte Macchiatto trim, and Climatronic.

Optional goods include Parkscan lighting package with bi-xenon headlamps and a navigation system with touch screen functionality.

The exterior palette has been changed too to, with the previous range being replaced by Slate Grey, Shadow Blue and Biscay Blue.

Touran's 1.9 and 2.0 TDI powerplants remain unchanged. So do its prices.

1.9 TDI Trendline - R232 700
1.9 TDI Trendline DSG - R247 200
2.0 TDI Highline - R273 700
2.0 TDI Highline DSG - R288 200

All Tourans are covered by Volkswagen's five-year / 60 000 km AutoMotion plan.
