The self-parking Touran
13 September 2006

If you’re struggling to park your MPV, VW has the answer: one that parks itself.If you specify ParkAssist, the Touran will steer its way into a parking space for you. VW claims it will do so in less than fifteen seconds.

VW has refreshed the car’s styling, though you need keen eyesight to spot it. The exterior metal has had mild tweaks front and rear, whilst the interior features new fabrics. Equipment has been bolstered so that you don’t have to go so far up the trim levels to get an MP3-playing sound system or semi-automatic air conditioning.

The current Touran’s diesel engine range has just expanded to include the 167bhp unit from the Golf and VW’s innovative 138bhp Twincharger unit.

New for the refreshed Touran will be the Twincharger engine in 167bhp tune. The car will be on sale in the UK in the first quarter of next year.
