This utterly cute, the 2016 VW Touran, originally, hit the global car markets twelve years ago. Since then, this stunning car hasn’t suffered any changes at all, until the 2010, when VW Touran got, a minor, facelift. Being that old model didn’t have any impact on its sale.
Nowadays, it’s become crystal clear, that if the officials from this German car maker wish that their beloved, highly praised and respected among the all Americans, to stay ahead in today’s very fierce car competitions, they have to make some changes.
So, the VW has officially announced that for the next year they are planning to launch newly made variant, which is going to come along with improved general features, extended motor range options, lighter and with a bolder and masculine general appearance.
2016 VW Touran Interior, Exterior and Appearance
In order to stay, in a way, fateful to its original roots, it is intended that this brand new variant retain, a bit, boxier shape. Everything else, regarding the exterior, is going to change. The VW’s designers create totally new, utterly fresh, somehow, sleeker sportier look due to more angular lines.
They even include the large tailgate and fully been redesigned elements, like: front grille, the bumper and headlights. But, the designers had in their minds also the following fact: if they strive to retain the Touran’s loyal buyers they ought to retain its trademarks. 2016 VW Touran is planned to be built on a newly made MBQ platform, which is intended only for a bit lighter vehicles.
When it comes to certain changes, which have happened in the interior area, the most notable are the main cabin, quite unexpected spaciousness combined with a much more stretched wheelbase. This main cabin’s spaciousness has as the direct result much more room for all of the body parts, for both-the driver, as well as the passengers. This fact is particularly important, when we have in our minds that the lack of space, the owners have been standing out as the main disadvantage of all Touran’s predecessors.
