The Volkswagen Touran is a minivan produced by Volkswagen since 2003. The new generation Touran, introduced in 2016, was renamed Touran L in China, but contrary to what this might suggest, its size or wheelbase is the same as the European version. It is currently in its third generation.

Volkswagen Touran Sales Figures
The Touran has been well-received in markets that appreciate compact MPVs. It’s often lauded for its practicality, build quality, and the versatility of its interior. It competes with other MPVs like the Citroën C4 Picasso, Renault Scénic, and Ford C-Max, among others. While the Touran has a strong presence in European markets, where compact MPVs are more popular, it might not be available or as well-known in regions where larger SUVs or minivans dominate.
