Following the CrossPolo and CrossGolf launched earlier in the year, the CrossTouran is now available to order.
The Touran already follows the new Volkswagen design DNA externally with a dynamic character line, a new, powerful rear-end design and two-part taillight clusters.
The new CrossTouran has a modified bad road kit complete with longer suspension springs it gets 20 millimetres more ground clearance than the standard model and a mix of 215 tyres at the front and 235s at the back, both on 17-inch alloy wheels.
With added features including a roof rack in matt aluminium, decorative trim in stainless steel look, electric windows front and rear, extra comfortable seats in the front with height adjustment and lumbar support, leather steering wheel plus leather trim on gearlever knob and handbrake and a special seat cover pattern.
The new CrossTouran is now also available with the particularly efficient and environmentally friendly ‘EcoFuel’ natural gas engine. Fuel consumption when driving on natural gas is 4.8 kilograms per 100 kilometres, which equates to CO2 emissions per kilometre of 133 grams. The additional natural gas tanks are located beneath the floor, so that the vehicle’s cargo capacity of up to 1,989 litres is not affected.
In total CrossTouran customers have a wide array of TSI, TDI and natural gas engines to choose from, ranging in power from 77 kW to 125 kW (105 to 170 PS).
