The VW-made-by-Chrysler has somehow made it near its launch without a single spy pic (at least, none that I'm aware of).

Lauch is next month in Chicago.

Here's a pic of the Euro Touran (who has a much better name). Anybody seen something Confused

Some googling always point to that pic (obviously from a tv) :

Oh dear. First the Tiguan now the Touran .... or was that Routan (lets not factor the Toureg). Rolling Eyes Seems as though the name police at VW's gone a bit overboard. They've abandoned the wind-name theme and seem to be cross-breeding names for their new line.

In Europe I did see a slab sided VW van that I thought was what BP posted (i.e. the Touran). But I couldn't see the name and the front end was definately different.

It may differentiate itself in NA if it is offered with the diesel and maybe even a manual.

In Europe, VW has the Sharan (think upscale Mz5), Touran (what they should have imported here) and the largish Eurovan replacement (think Sprinter competitor).

i think this is a better option, if ever thinking of buying the new dodge or chrysler mini-vans even though they share the same platform...

Unveil was today. Here's a pic (there are 8 official ones out so far). For the US, the base van will have the 3.8 litre engine, with the 4.0 optional. 2nd row is conventional : no " n'gos " for VW. The price is a big surprise : 25k$ for the base van; I expected high-end pricing.

The dash from the lone interior pic looks improved next to the GC.

interesting placement for the audio components. VW's always been big on putting things like that at eye level or at least high on the cluster. unless what i'm seeing on the lower level are HVAC and secondary audio controls and the main control panel is via the video screen Question

any word on transmission offerings and whether there will be a diesel option? ..... and is that $25K Canadian (which is actually the same as USD nowadays anyway) Exclamation

Price is in US$. Remember, this is a GC with make-up, built on the same assembly line. The 6-speed slushbox and engines are 100% Chrysler, so no diesel. Ditto for the IP's skin : every control will be located where they are on the Chrysler twins, except surface components will have their own look and texture.

I think both interior and exterior are much better looking than the Chrysler cousins.

We'll have to see in person. Both Chrysler LLC twins looked mucho cheap inside at the auto show. But I agree : the V-dubber is better looking than the GC and T&C.
