The new Volkswagen Multivan is helping to usher Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles into a new era as it replaces the beloved Caravelle 6.1.
The Multivan is almost infinitely flexible, with a range of interior options to make it fit your lifestyle perfectly. It is modern and edgy in design but instantly recognisable as a Volkswagen, and represents a natural evolution of the VW van.
The Multivan will set itself apart from the Transporter van for the first time by using a different platform, which is a modified version of a car platform rather than a van chassis. Volkswagen's new design language is present in the Multivan, with narrow headlights and a wide grille to match other models in the range.
The Multivan is a fresh design from the ground up and is no longer a Transporter van with windows as its Caravelle predecessor was, making for a more comfortable experience. With sliding doors on either side to access the passenger seats it's also more accessible than a traditional people carrier too.
The new seating concept in the VW Multivan is one of its biggest strengths. Designed with families in mind it offers up to seven seats across three rows in a variety of set up combinations. Trying rotating the middle row seats for a more social journey or folding down the third row of seats to access more luggage space inside.
The innovative multifunction table can also be moved between any of the seating rows for the first time, including to be moved between the front seats and used as a centre console. It includes three cup holders, height adjustment, and a deep storage compartment to make it as useful as possible.
If you're using all the seats you'll still have 469 litres of boot space and removing the rear seats entirely opens it up to 1844 litres. You even have the option to fold the rearmost seats down separately as individual seats replace the former three seat bench. More than enough room for you, the family, and all the items that comes with you as you travel.
Alongside traditional petrol and diesel engines the Multivan is also presented with a plug in hybrid powertrain for the first time and was the visit commercial vehicle from Volkswagen to offer a plug in hybrid option.
It will be offered with a 1.5 or 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine from the VW Group's well-renowned selection, and a 2.0 turbocharged diesel engine for those who need a little more fuel economy. Each of these options should provide enough power to keep the Multivan, its occupants and all their leisure luggage moving along nicely.
For something a little greener there is also the 1.4 TSI eHybrid which offers a 29 mile range in all electric mode and a combined mpg of up to 156.9 by combining the electric power of the electric motor with the internal combustion engine.
