VW Touran Camper boot size

(1 customer review)

It’s a bit smaller Sharan – easier to park, but less space inside, the rest is about the same. If you want a smaller (and a bit cheaper) car with VW interior & engine standards, good safety rating and good consumption that you can still sleep in, the Touran might just be it. If you don’t mind the interior as much, you’re better off looking at Berlingo, Caddy or similar cars.

This car's boot is 179 cm long ⤢, 94 cm tall ↕, and 105 cm wide ↔.

NimbleCamper rating: 2.9/5

You certainly can – and people do, as you can see in our DIY camping conversions section. The Touran’s boot isn’t the longest or tallest, but you can get up to 190cm long and 100cm(shoulders-between doors) maximum sleeping area and about 94cm tall boot. The seats fold completely flat in the newer models or they are easily removable (in a few seconds, just unclip it and remove it). See our DIY camping conversions for ideas – many can be adjusted to the Touran, especially similar-sized cars, like the Zafira Tourer or Ford Galaxy / S-Max.

The VW Touran is available with a range of petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol engines range from 1.2L to 1.5L, while the diesel engines range from 1.6L to 2.0L. The power output of the engines ranges from 110 horsepower to 190 horsepower.

The VW Touran comes with a range of safety features as standard, including ABS (anti-lock braking system), ESP (electronic stability program), hill start assist, and six airbags.

The VW Touran is a seven-seater vehicle, with three rows of seats. The second row features three individual seats, while the third row features two individual seats that can be folded flat to create extra luggage space when not in use.

Yes, the VW Touran is an excellent family car. It offers plenty of space for up to seven passengers and their luggage, and it comes with a range of safety features as standard.

    NimbleCamper rating: 2.9/5 – It’s a smaller Sharan – good if a small camper is your priority. But if you want more space in the boot, with VW trim and standards, go for the Sharan.

  • Average used price, GBP (2015) – I use Carsite.co.uk‘s price aggregates from 2015 (or the nearest possible year if not available), or, if not found, from autoscout24.com. For new cars, I specify the closest possible match (i.e. if released this year, it’s the new price, if released two years ago, it’s the 2-years old price etc). It’s here to give you a benchmark comparison (- a like for like, an apple with an apple) of the value of each car and for filtering purposes. It’s not meant to be used as an accurate estimate of used car value – it is updated once a year, so make sure you know what the car should cost at the time of purchase if you decide to buy one.
  • Boot dimensions – taken from various sources across the web, starting with official, supplemented with other reliable websites (like ridc.org.uk), supplemented by user-generated content – images of measurements from forums or social networks. It’s also used for filtering, comparison and to give you a good idea of the car’s suitability for camping.
  • Comfort rating – a benchmark used to simplify the car’s comfort & driving score based on equipment, furnishings, handling, safety, and costs ratings from external sources like whatcar.com, carwow.co.uk, autocar.co.uk etc. It gives you an indication of whether the car will drive and feel like a van (low rating) or offer better interior & handling (higher rating). A simple van-like car, for example, a Renault Kangoo is 0.5, a well equipped and comfortable car like a Ford S-Max is a 2. No hard math behind it, just an indicator, f.e. 0.5= basic car that does the job, 1.5 = hey, that’s nice to have!, 2 = oooh, comfyyyy.
  • Consumption – I take the average 2017 consumption or closest match from Fuelly.com, or if none is available, from other sources like honestjohn.co.uk. If there are not enough cars for a single year, an average for several years is calculated.
  • NimbleCamper rating – a weighted score of boot length (45% weight), boot height (40%), consumption (10%) and comfort (5%). The logic of weighing length & height higher than consumption and comfort is – headroom is important when you sleep in the back of the car, so is the length. A comfy ride is a factor, but you can sleep in a big car that’s not that comfy, however, it’s much harder to camp/sleep in a comfy car that’s too small. Read more about the NimbleCamper rating and criteria here.
    • a note for EVs (electric vehicles) – for consumption, I am using the Fuel Equivalent Consumption estimate by ev-database.org. It is usually much lower than combustion engines, giving EVs an advantage – which I think is fair. They do have a small disadvantage in terms of having to plan your trips around charging stations + longer waiting time, but that will get better over time. More charging stations, faster chargers and better batteries. Therefore I am not adjusting the calculation for EVs in any way.
    • In short: a litre of petrol contains about 8.9 kWh of energy. If we divide the energy consumption of an EV by this (f.e. 16 kWh/100 km divided by 8.9 kWh/litre), we get equivalent fuel consumption of 1.8 l/100 km.
