Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:

 → Folding backrests in the second row of seats forwards and backwards  

 → Folding the seats on the second row of seats forwards and backwards  

 → Removing the seats in the second row of seats  

 → Installing the seats in the second row of seats  

 → Folding the backrests on the third row of seats forwards  

 → Folding the backrests on the third row of seats back  

 → Luggage compartment cover  

 → Net partition  

 → Fastening rings  

 → Bag hook  

Heavy items must always be transported in the luggage compartment and you must ensure that the rear seat backrests are securely engaged in the upright position. Always use suitable securing straps with the fastening rings. Never exceed the vehicle's maximum payload. Both the payload and the distribution of the load in the vehicle will have an effect on the driving response and braking distance of the vehicle  .

Additional information and warnings:

  • Tailgate  
  • Airbag system  
  • Child seats (accessories)  
  • Lights  
  • Transporting  
  • Towing a trailer  
  • Stowage  
  • Wheels and tyres  

WARNING

When the vehicle is not in use or is not being supervised, always lock the doors and tailgate to reduce the risk of severe or fatal injuries.
  • Never leave children unattended, especially when the tailgate is open. Children could make their way into the luggage compartment, close the tailgate and be unable to get out. This can cause severe or fatal injuries.
  • Never let children play in or around the vehicle.
  • Do not travel with people in the luggage compartment.

WARNING

Objects which are not secured or which are secured incorrectly could cause serious injuries in the event of a sudden driving or braking manoeuvre or accident. This will apply in particular if objects are struck by the airbag when activated and are then flung through the vehicle interior. Please observe the following points to reduce the risk of accidents:
  • Always stow all items in the vehicle securely. Always store luggage and heavy objects in the luggage compartment.
  • Always use suitable straps to prevent luggage from being thrown through the vehicle interior and entering the deployment zone of the side airbags or the front airbag in the event of a sudden driving or braking manoeuvre or an accident.
  • Always keep stowage compartments closed while the vehicle is in motion.
  • Do not stow any hard, heavy or sharp objects loose in any of the vehicle's open stowage areas, on the luggage compartment cover or on the dash panel.
  • Remove any hard, heavy or sharp objects from items of clothing and bags inside the vehicle and stow them securely.

WARNING

Transporting heavy objects changes the vehicle driving characteristics and increases the braking distance. Heavy loads which are not properly stowed or secured in the vehicle can lead to a loss of vehicle control and can cause serious injury.
  • Transporting heavy objects changes the vehicle driving characteristics and the centre of gravity.
  • The payload should be distributed as evenly as possible in the vehicle.
  • Always secure heavy items in the luggage compartment as far as possible in front of the rear axle.

WARNING

Injuries could be caused if the backrests are folded forwards and backwards carelessly.
  • Never fold the seat backrest forwards or backwards while the vehicle is in motion.
  • Please ensure that the seat belt is not trapped or damaged when folding back the seat backrest.
  • Always keep hands, fingers, feet and other body parts away from the seat area when folding the backrest forwards and backwards.
  • Make sure that each backrest engages securely in the upright position, otherwise the seat belts for the rear seats will not work properly. If a seat is occupied and the backrest has not clicked securely into place, the seat occupant and backrest may move forwards in the event of a sudden braking or driving manoeuvre or during accidents.
  • A mark on the backrest of the third row of seats is an indication that the backrest has not clicked into place. Please always ensure that the red marking is never visible when the seat backrest is in the upright position.
  • Passengers (adults and children) must not use seats if the backrest is folded forwards or is not clicked securely into place.

NOTICE

Items in the luggage compartment could cause damage when pushing the rear seats forwards or backwards.

NOTICE
  • Hard objects on the rear parcel shelf could chafe against the wires of the heating element or aerial in the rear window and cause damage.
  • Hard objects could rub against the aerial in the side windows and cause damage.

Do not cover the ventilation openings on the rear side windows in the luggage compartment as this would prevent stale air escaping from the vehicle.
