Touran Tops Europe's MPV Sales Chart For The First Time  ◾Touran developed in 2016 into No. 1 in all MPV classes

◾Handles stop-and-go traffic automatically with new ACC

Wolfsburg – Volkswagen's Touran is, for the first time, Europe's most successful MPV. According to renowned market research company IHS Automotive, the Touran took top spot on the European Continent as the best-selling MPV with a total of more than 112,000 new registrations in 2016. The latest generation of the all-rounder, with its innovative driver assistance and infotainment systems, is sold in more than 40 countries worldwide. Thanks to the fold-flat seating (with up to seven seats and 834 litres of boot space) the Touran ranks as one of the most versatile multi- purpose vehicles of any class.

Volkswagen recently updated one of the Touran's most important driver assistance systems: the ACC (including Front Assist surroundings monitoring and City Emergency Brake function). The adaptive cruise control now covers the speed range from 30 to 210 km/h (previously 30 to 160 km/h). Combined with a dual clutch gearbox (DSG), this spectrum widens from 0 to 210 km/h. With ACC and DSG, the Touran now moves through stop-and-go traffic almost automatically, as – within the system limits – it slows to a stop and pulls away again autonomously. The specialist family vehicle's further highlights include technologies such as the 3-zone-Climatronic system (high air quality thanks to an active biogenic filter) and the Car-Net Cam Connect camera system – where a GoPro® camera removes the need for parents to turn around by showing a picture of children in the back on the infotainment system's monitor.
