As the creator of the people carrier, Chrysler continues to forge ahead with new ideas for the growing number of MPV customers. Now the company has released the Voyager Touring, a new special edition that enhances the car with luxury touches.
Sunscreen glass, 16-inch alloy wheels and a six-speaker CD sound system are among the features of the Voyager Touring and with electric windows and power steering taken as read, the car also includes a leather wrapped steering wheel featuring audio controls.
Voyager Touring comes with a choice of engines – a lively four cylinder 2.4 litre petrol unit delivering 145 bhp of power and 161 lb ft of torque or a lusty 2.5 common rail diesel which provides 141 bhp of power and 251 lb ft of torque.
The petrol version accelerates from 0-62 mph in 12.4 seconds and achieves a top speed of 114 mph. Fuel consumption is an impressive 28.0 mpg on the combined cycle. The Touring CRD goes from 0-62 mph in 11.9 seconds and continues up to a top speed of 115 mph. It returns 36.7 mpg on the combined cycle.
With security and safety in mind, Voyager Touring includes as standard four wheel ABS braking, front seat belt pre-tensioners, front side airbags, side impact protection guards and a Smart Key immobiliser.
Simon Elliott, Managing Director of Chrysler and Jeep in the UK said: "The Chrysler Voyager has always been a success story in the UK as much for its versatility and size as for its style. The changes we have made to bring to our customers the Voyager Touring will be welcomed, and I am sure the car will become a very worthy member of the Voyager family."
Voyager Touring costs £18,795 on-the-road for the 2.4 litre petrol version and £19,995 on-the-road for the 2.5 CRD. As with all Chrysler vehicles, Voyager Touring comes with a full peace-of-mind warranty package which provides three years/60,000-mile cover plus seven years/unlimited mileage anti-corrosion warranty and three years roadside emergency cover.Published 4 June 2003
