Volkswagen spices up the current Touran in the middle of Dieselgate scandal. The family car becomes a little more sportier with the help of a new R-Line package, available from this fall.

The package includes new front and rear bumpers. The main design differences at the front are two body-coloured wing-like air intakes with C-shape gloss black signature and an R-Line logo in the radiator grille. At the rear, the bumper has sporty contours and is adorned by a chrome strip. Noticeable side-on features of the family MPV include high-gloss black side sill extensions, silver anodised roof rails and R-Line logos on the side sections and front doors.

Customers are offered a choice of 17- or 18-inch Salvador or Marseille wheels. Seating with ‘Race’ fabric covers and the extra comfortable front seats create a new interior ambience. This is further contributed to by the titanium black roof liner, ‘Black Lead Grey’ decorative inlays for the instrument panel and front door panels, fabric floor mats with decorative stitching in ‘Crystal Grey’, front door tread plates in aluminium and pedals in stainless steel. A leather-trimmed multi-function sports steering wheel with decorative aluminium trim and R-Line logo rounds off the Touran R-Line’s overall sporty look.

The full R-Line package is available from €2,155. For customers just wanting sporty customisation of the bodywork, the R-Line ‘Exterior’ package is the perfect choice. It is available from just €760.
