VW Touran good value for money this quarter?

    The price and range of the VW Touran is worth consideration in my opinion. 3 years ago there were only 3 models available and the 1.6 family was not the dearest at £1400 AP. I traded in an old banger and the family edition was the one I chose from stock which has performed without a fault. The only negative for me is the positioning of the Sat-Nav screen and the annoying voice that can’t get British place names right.

    This time around my Touran is due to be replaced and I nearly overlooked this car in place of a Sharan or Tarraco. Not only is the Touran cheaper for me this time around but with the £600 good condition bonus I think it could be a bargain. As an example the:

    Volkswagen Touran 2.0TDI SE is £899 AP

    The Volkswagen Touran 2.0TDI SE Family is £1,099 AP

    The Volkswagen Touran 1.5 TSI R-Line is £1,199 AP

    It’s a great car for the money.

    Any thoughts?

    The Touran is still the top of my short list and it was a bargain AP of £999 for the DSG SEL this time last year but it was just a shame they couldn’t deliver for 9 months.

    It will still be on the list in 2021 when I next renew but I think the model is being replaced about then.

    We had a Touran for 8 years as a family car and it was faultless, passed every MOT. Ours was a 180 sport tdi dsg, my friend remapped it to around 210bhp and it used to fly and always did mid 40mpg no matter how it was driven.

    A lot of people think they are ugly looking cars but they drive so well and shape means it was so practical.

    Like all vw’s the interiors are so user friendly.  I very nearly bought another one.

    But now my disability has changed I found the Tiguan more comfortable with has more modern tech.

    Think the 1.5 engine is fine with the DSG.

    Well if the Touran takes as long as my Sharan, don’t expect it to soon! Unless you’re lucky enough to get an order from stock of course.

    With the Touran being so popular you’re more likely to find dealer stock.
