2006 Volkswagen Touran TDI Sport 2.0 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Good quality and performance, with a high residual value
Nothing as yet.
Handling: very agile for an MPV.
The 2.0L TDI engine is very torquey and free revving
Driving: The car, with its six speed gearbox, goes up through the cogs very easily (beware). Before you know it, you're breaking the law on the motorways.
The engine cruises very nicely, great for long distances. Have got up to 56 MPG if I drive it with care. Nevertheless, the high 40s is an average for me on dual carriageways and motorways. Around town this drops to high 30s and low 40s; good for a car that weighs 1561kg.
To recap: If you're looking for a quality MPV, look no further.
p.s. I bet the new 170PS diesel will be amazing.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
