Work continues on the 2015 / 2016 Volkswagen Touran as another prototype has been spied in Europe.

Work continues on the 2015 / 2016 Volkswagen Touran as another prototype has been spied in Europe.

While the car is heavily disguised, it features LED-infused headlights and an evolutionary design. Additional styling details are hard to make out but the model is expected to be heavily influenced by the Golf.

Our spies couldn't get close enough to snap interior photos but there should be a more accommodating cabin with Easy Fold seats. Previous reports have also suggested there will be additional amenities but there's no word on specifics.

Volkswagen has remained coy on specifications but the Touran is expected to ride on the MQB platform. This could enable the car to weigh up to 100 kg (220 lbs) less than its predecessor.

Engines options remain unconfirmed but possible candidates include:

  • A 1.2-liter TSI with outputs of 85 PS (63 kW) and 105 PS (77 kW)
  • A 1.4-liter TSI with outputs of 122 PS (90 kW) and 140 PS (103 kW)
  • A 1.6-liter TDI with 105 PS (77 kW)
  • A 2.0-liter TDI with 150 PS (110 kW)
