Volkswagen Touran gets more power from MR Car Design

The German tuning company MR Car Design decided to start a bolder project, which would require a lot of guts. Thus, they decided to modify a Volkswagen Touran . MR Car Design decided to give the Volkswagen Touran a complete stage 1 treatment, modifying both the exterior design and the power of the engine. For this project, MR Car Design used a Volkswagen Touran equipped with a 2.0 TDI diesel engine.

The styling modifications include the white racing stripes and a new set of 19 inch alloy wheels by RC Design in a white finish with Vredestein tires of sizes 235/35 R19. Thus, you can say that they decided to only subtly modify the aspect of the Volkswagen Touran .

Moving on to the technical modifications, MR Car Design decided to install a Stoptech high performance braking system with four piston calipers as well as a sport suspension kit by KW that lowers the ride height by up to 80 millimeters. In terms of performance, the 2.0 TDI engine an ECU (Engine Control Unit) remap which, together with a custom made stainless steel sport exhaust system, manage to push the power of the engine up to 223 horsepower and 457 Nm of torque.

Unfortunately, MR Car Design did not disclose any information regarding availability or pricing.

In my opinion, if MR Car Design will price correctly their stage 1 modification kit for the Volkswagen Touran , they will certainly earn a lot of money. I am sure that there are a lot of people that need a large car like the Volkswagen Touran because they have big families but would also like to have some fun in the weekends. With the modifications done by MR Car Design, the car would be just great for this segment of buyers.
