What is it?
The facelifted Touran MPV, which comes with a big range of engines and a choice of five or seven seats. And from early next year, the option of self-parking.
What's it like?
Good to drive, and now with a prettier face, restyled rump and slightly posher interior. But the real question is how's your parallel parking? Are you the sort of person who swings their car into a space in one fluid movement, or do you take repeated kerb- and bumper-bashing attempts?
Naturally everyone here at Autocar can park like a pro… But for those who can't, help is now at hand. The self-parking system – called Park Assist – is optional, but VW reckons it will cost around £450, or about half that if you pick the top-spec car with standard parking sensors.
To these sensors, it adds a couple of side-facing ones, which detect empty spaces automatically when you’re travelling under 18mph. Should you decide to park in a space you've just passed, simply press the Park Assist button.
