Self Study Program 548 – The Touran 2016

VAG SSP 548. The Touran 2016 is an all-new development and is being built using the modular transverse matrix for the first time. It combines innovative technology with an optimum use of space. In addition to the new design, the construction and functional advantages of the MQB can be seen in the individual assembly groups for the Touran.

The increase in the exterior length mainly results from the longer wheelbase. This has created more space in the interior and the largest luggage compartment volume among the five- and seven-seaters in this class. All individual seats on the second and third seat rows and the front passenger seat can be folded down to create an extensive cargo area.

The innovative technology includes, for example, the infotainment systems from the modular infotainment matrix (MIB) along with the App Connect function.

Lightweight technology in the powertrain and body assembly groups has allowed us to reduce the weight by up to 62 kg compared with the previous model. The lower weight and improved aerodynamics have decreased the fuel consumption of the TSI and TDI engines by up to 19%.

The established driver assist systems and also the trailer manoeuvring system, which is being used for the first time in an MPV, provide more safety and convenience. A Climatronic system with three temperature zones and up to 47 stowage possibilities complete the new convenience features in the Touran 2016.

You will find more information on the technology in the new Touran in this and other Self-study Programmes.
