“Automotive manipulator” Theophilus Chin has released a couple of renders with the 2015 Volkswagen Touran.

The compact MPV is about to reach third generation as prototypes have been spied undergoing testing in Europe several times hiding an evolutionary design which will likely come close to Theophilus Chin's speculative render. Expect sharper lines creating a more angular design along with a slightly increased wheelbase for a roomier cabin.

Despite looking a lot like the outgoing model, the 2015 Volkswagen Touran will be very different from a mechanical point of view as it will make the switch to the MQB platform and will probably end up shaving off around 100 kg (220 lbs). Engine lineup will likely be carried over from the seventh-gen Golf and it is believed there will be a new Cross Touran packing an all-wheel drive 4MOTION setup.

There are some rumors Volkswagen will offer the model in United States but we are still waiting for a confirmation. Chances are the all-new Touran will be introduced in October at the Paris Motor Show and will go on sale before the year's end.
