Not small but still perfectly formed, the Touran is a testament to VW's expertise at dull but good cars

Good stuff

Cabin quality, refinement, semi-usable third-row rear seats

Bad stuff

Forgettable, taxi-driver image

Overview

What is it?

A Golf, only with seven-seats and, erm, little else besides. But we’re not complaining. The Golf ranks among our favourite hatchbacks, so the Touran really ought to be good. And it is, if a bit worthy. This new one sits on the hugely versatile MQB platform, which underpins everything from Golfs and A3s right the way up to the tremendous Skoda Superb. It’s a bit wider and significantly longer than the car it replaces, but lighter and oftentimes more economical. As the added benefit is a great deal of extra interior space, particularly for passengers, this is one example of new car growth we thoroughly approve of.

What's the verdict?

Better than the car it replaces, but not interesting, exciting or memorable.
