Could be lighter, more fuel efficient

The Volkswagen Touran is one of Europe's best selling minivans and new details are starting to emerge about the redesigned model.

According to Auto Motor und Sport, the next-generation Touran will debut in late 2014 and ride on the MQB platform which could enable it to weigh 100 kg (220 lbs) less than its predecessor. It will reportedly be about the same size as today's model, but have sportier styling and possibly a long-wheelbase variant.

On the inside, we can expect to see additional standard equipment and the EasyFold seat system from the Sharan.

Under the hood, there should be a variety of fuel-efficient engines. More specifically, the magazine reports the 1.4 TSI will be offered in a 140 PS (103 kW / 138 hp) version with cylinder deactivation technology that should reduce its fuel consumption by about 0.4 L/100 km.

VW are like their audi counter-parts now. All their cars from the front look almost identical to each other

Maybe because someone that bought an A8 doesnt like to be mistaken for a A1 owner :) (while only the opposite is true)

I would LOVE to see Volkswagen offer the next-generation Touran here in the USA with the 140 bhp TDI engine and an improved, smoother-shifting DSG automatic.
