A European VW minivan with a 51.1 mpgUS combined rating?
VW, Europe?s largest carmaker, is making the automobile more efficient with the launch of every new model. The latest example of this sustainability offensive is the new Touran. Germany?s best-selling MPV is now up to 27% more fuel-efficient ? thanks to engine downsizing, innovative technologies and cleaned up aerodynamics. The 1.6L Touran TDI with BlueMotion Technology bests the 47.0 mpgUS combined rating mark for the first time, with Volkswagen?s aim for the future being to get above 51 mpgUS combined on the NEDC.
