Poor reliability, buy at your own risk! `
Bought this in Nov 2013. I was initially satisfied with the car, until I hit around 16k mileage when the gearbox started to judder at low gears. Sent it in and was told that the gearbox had failed the clutch adaption test. Changing of gearbox was just the first of many parts which were subsequently replaced. Parts changed under warranty thus far (car age of only 2.5 years) : clutch plates, left coil springs, steering rack, stabilisation bar, top mount and bearing, temperature sensor. Some abnormal steering noises remain and the technical team just brushed it aside as normal operating noises. Poor after sales service is a recurrent problem despite many promises given by their company. After all, if a company cheats in emissions testing, I really can't expect that much from them. Truly regretted buying volkswagen. Buy at your own risk!

Very safe and versatile MPV which is fun to drive! `
Bought my VW Touran Comfort 1.4 TSI back in Nov 2013. I have clocked 17k mileage without much problems. This MPV is certainly safe with 10 airbags and NCAP 5 star rating. (sgcarmart states that touran has 6 airbags, but the current Touran model has actually 10 airbags! No joke!). I have been in an accident with a BMW 5 series recently, the Touran was certainly hardly enough to withstand a knock from the BMW without much damage. The car even features 3 point seat belts for the third row. Mileage is reasonable. A combination of city and highway driving gives me a mileage of around 10.5-11.5 km/L. You can never expect the mileage which is stated in the showrooms though :) The drive of the Touran is responsive and punchy. I am driving the comfort version with 140bhp and am certainly not disappointed by the acceleration. I am not a speed freak, so I didn't opt for the Touran Sport. But the acceleration of 9.5s is already much faster than the other MPV rivals. In fact, it is faster than most MPVs except VW Sharan, Ford S-MAX/galaxy. The length of the car is shorter compared to the usual rivals like Citroen C4, Grand Scenic, Wish, 5008, Stream, S-Max etc. However, the internal space isn't much less compared to its rivals. The only downside is the boot space is remarkably reduced when the third row seats are up. Space at the first and second row are definitely sufficient for everyday use. Overall, a MPV worth buying in view of the excellent safety features and punchy drive!

Not the best lookers MPV around but certainly one of the most drivable! `
My family is contributing to our population growth thus found a need to have a bigger car but yet has to be economical in terms of FC/Road Tax/Insurance. Test drove the usual suspects which compromises of 5008, C4, Wish and Mazda 5 (Stream getting dated) and found among the 5, the Touran (Sports) is really exhilarating. The functional seats, sun roof (my son adored it!), compartment space and safety features are what stands out from the rest. The engine pick up is smooth and did not stutter even with 7 members on board during the test drive - sweet!
