After we saw the CrossPolo and CrossGolf, Volkswagen unveiled today the brad new CrossTouran, a new vehicle whoch promises to fill the gap in the Cross lifestyle family. Priced from €27,700, the new car follows the same new Volkswagen design DNA with the powerful rear-end design and two-part taillight clusters.
According to Volkswagen, the CrossTouran comes with longer suspension springs and it receives 20 millimetres more ground clearance than the standard model. Also, it comes with 215 tyres at the front and 235s at the back, both on 17-inch wheels.
Exterior elements include new widened wheel arches which form a unit with the side sills but also front and rear bumpers and the black grained protective strips on the doors.
Inside, we find a roof rack in matt aluminium, decorative trim in stainless steel look, electric windows, extra comfortable seats in the front with height adjustment and lumbar support, a steering wheel wrapped in leather, plus leather trim on gearlever knob and handbrake and a special seat cover pattern.
Under the hood we will find 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).
Regarding the natural gas-powered version, this promises to deliver a fuel consumption of just 4.8 liters per 100 kilometres and 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.
