Volkswagen Touran Competitor Insight

Cross-shopping on whatcar.com

Although fewer buyers are choosing people carriers these days, it’s clear from our list that those who do are less likely to be persuaded to buy another class of car.

Whereas usually, we’d expect to see multiple vehicle classes represented in our top 10, here the majority of competitors to the What Car? Award-winning Touran comes from within its own class, with the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer leading the charge. Citroen, Peugeot and Skoda all have two models represented here, but Skoda – having no people carriers within its vehicle line-up – is instead represented by the Karoq and Kodiaq SUVs.

It’s also interesting to note that the Citroen Berlingo and Peugeot Rifter make it into our top 10, the third badge-engineered sibling of this trio, the Vauxhall Combo Life, falls back in 14th position.
