Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE includes a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t bother about a stiff ride, although the SE remains relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can also be a good bargain considering all of the safety and tech equipment you obtain for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide selection of options, to help you pick and choose those are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs might be all of the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 VW Touran. Coming off a redesign just this past year, the 2020 VW Touran is a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with a lot of standard safety equipment and a lot of options to select from.
As has been the case for a while, you can get the 2020 VW Touran with a four-cylinder engine or a stronger V6, or you can get the miserly 2020 VW Touran Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 VW Touran is comfortable and compliant. 2020 VW Touran also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 VW Touran with a little bit of extra personality. Inside, the 2020 VW Touran supplies a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you choose one of the upper trim levels. There are lots of options to pick from over the way.
The 2020 VW Touran is really as competent while they come. It’s well-priced overall, and modern feature content makes it supremely an easy task to drive. If you’re searching for something with a little more class and space than the usual small sedan, the 2020 VW Touran might just be the sedan for you.
The 2020 VW Touran is the beds base trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features which includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 VW Touran Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On another rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and an automobile alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Most of the features located on the upper trim levels can be put into the reduced trim levels as options. Other notable options include a sunroof, a JBL sound system along with an integrated navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 VW Touran stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the trunk seat is easy to fold down to suit longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to create a lot of people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in the leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The 2020 VW Touran has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s super easy to mount a vehicle seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so the front seat will not need to be scooted completely forward.
