Volkswagen released the CrossTouran, a pseudo-offroad version of their Touran microvan, for world markets. The CrossTouran joins the CrossPolo and CrossFox in yet another variant for people who want a car just a bit higher off the ground than Volkswagen usually produces.

With a raised suspension, special wheels and a new bodykit, the CrossTouran gets an interior with aluminum trim throughout the cabin. The CrossTouran also gets widened wheel arches to give it a more muscular appearance. The CrossTouran will get the full range of direct injected motors, including the 1.2L TSI four-cylinder and the 1.4L twincharged TFSI, as well as TDI options. The CrossTouran is expected to retail €27,700.
