Jul 28, 2009
► Match model adds Â£1,600 worth of equipment for a Â£500 premium
► New RNS310 satellite navigation system comes as standard
► Park Assist with front and rear parking sensors also included in the price
With the launch of the new Match model, which opens for ordering today, Volkswagen is offering customers more equipment and value for money on its popular and versatile seven-seat compact MPV. Pricing for the Touran Match starts at Â£19,515 (RRP OTR).
The new addition to the Touran range is based on the SE model and is fitted with Â£1,600 worth of additional equipment as standard, for just a Â£500 premium. The key changes are inside where the Match gains a multifunction steering wheel, Multi-Device Interface (MDI) and iPod connectivity, plus the new RNS310 satellite navigation system all standard. Front and rear parking sensors with Park Assist – the sensor-controlled steering aid to assist parallel parking – complete the convenience package.
From the outside, the Match gains new 16-inch ‘Perth’ alloy wheels, a matt finish front grille, smoked lens covers for the front and rear lights and 65 per cent tinted glass from the B-pillar back.
These additional items join the Touran’s already comprehensive list of standard specification which features ABS with Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP), front, side and curtain airbags, semi-automatic air conditioning and cruise control.
The Touran Match is available with a choice of petrol and diesel engines, and with a standard six-speed manual gearbox. The 1.4-litre TSI 140 PS petrol engine is also available with a seven-speed DSG gearbox while the two 2.0-litre TDI units developing either 140 or 170 PS can be specified with a six-speed DSG transmission. Three variants of Volkswagen’s 1.9-litre TDI 105 PS engine are also available: with or without a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and the more efficient unit fitted to the Touran Match BlueMotion.
