2015 VW Touran

It is now certain that 2015 VW Touran will come soon. The car has been spotted and spy-shot in street testing, and now we can partly have a look to it, and its new features and some details. However, heavy camouflage covered big part of the car and with enough time for changes, it is not 100 percent sure that we will get the same car. According to rumors, main change for 2015 Touran will be in weight, because diet which is planned for the vehicle should drop its weight for 100 kg.

2015 VW Touran platform

With many other vehicles, 2015 VW Touran will also go under new MQB modular architecture. Compact vehicle gets redesign for 2015 year model. It is expected, because last two facelifts were made for 2006 and 2010 year models. However, this one would remind us on Golf 7 family, which is also built on MQB concept. That platform uses lighter materials, which leads to weight drop of around 220 pounds. This is significant change which will be registered especially in fuel economy boost. Also, longer wheelbase offers more interior space, so it is one extra benefit for 2015 Touran from new concept. New design includes angular headlights with bold LED elements, which was seen on Passat, a squarer rear-end and more shapely window-line, which is also characteristic of cars with MQB platform.

2015 VW Touran engines

It is still secret what lies beneath new VW Touran hood. We assume that some small capacity engine could be there, probably turbocharged petrol unit or new diesel drivetrains. Hybrid version of  VW Touran 2015 is also possible. Since most things will be same as for Golf 7, it is possibility that engine range could be carried over. That means 2015 VW Touran could get A 1.2-liter TSI as base engine good for 110 hp. Mid-range options are 1.4-l TSI and 1.6-l TDI with 140 hp and 110 hp. Top of the class is 2.0-liter TDI which can deliver around 150 hp.
