It’s the car that’s anything you want it to be.
With its wide range of cool features, the 7-seater Touran TDI has finally graced our shores! Like its petrol-powered companion, the Touran TSI, this diesel MPV is packed with possibilities and comes with the introduction of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), through the use of the new AdBlue® reducing agent.
A water/urea based operating fluid, AdBlue® helps reduce polluting nitrogen oxides through the SCR process, transforming every drive in the diesel-powered Touran TDI into a fuel-efficient and eco-friendly experience!
So how does it work?
- AdBlue® is added via a dedicated filling tube located behind the fuel flap which can hold up to 11 litres. As it is not a diesel additive, it should not be poured into the fuel tank.
- A chemical reaction begins, removing the polluting oxides of nitrogen (NOx), converting them into harmless water and nitrogen in a process known as Selective Catalytic Reduction, or SCR for short.
- When it is time for a refill, the driver will be alerted by a message on the dash panel. If AdBlue® is not topped up, the system sends out another reminder at the 2,400 km mark while a warning buzzer sounds at the 1,000 km distance. From a remaining distance of 0 km, engine start is inhibited.
Concerned about how quickly it might be used up? No worries, as AdBlue® consumption depends on individual driving style. On average, it is about 1% of your regular fuel consumption. Topping up is also a breeze and can be done conveniently at the Dialogue Reception, or you could simply purchase a bottle and fill up the tank yourself.
As the icing on the cake, the new Touran TDI offers heaps of comfort and spaciousness too. On the inside, its length-adjustable seats allow generous head- and legroom for the driver and six passengers. With the largest panoramic sunroof in its segment and its anti-allergen 3-zone air-conditioning system, everyone travelling in the Touran can always enjoy fresh, clean air.
What’s more, functions like Front Assist with City Emergency Brake and Active Bonnet help make the Touran TDI incredibly secure. It’s no surprise that it achieved the Euro NCAP 2015 ‘Best in Class’ in the ‘Compact MPV’ category.
