New 2012 Volkswagen Multivan

A must drive for large looking for seven seats and needing a commercial passenger

Ewan Kennedy road and reviews the new 2012 Volkswagen with specs, fuel and rating.

Volkswagen has spiced up the with a powerful TSI 350 petrol hooked up to a seven-speed DSG automatic Until now the people carrier was only offered with engines, so the addition of the petrol broadens appeal. The ‘350’ the maximum torque available the engine.

The new Multivan TSI350 the same equipment levels as the TDI 400 models in either Comfortline of Bluetooth is optional on Comfortline and on Highline. Our test Multivan was the specification starting at $54,990 on roads) with the Highline TSI 350 at $71,990.

The 2.0-litre petrol with turbo intercooler and injection is a sophisticated piece of that at no times suffers the 2.1 tonnes of the Multivan. The new engine a bigger punch than you expect from that capacity. This is due to direct technology along with a intercooled turbocharger.

There’s 150 kW of power on tap with torque of 350 Nm available from a low rpm. Driveability is excellent. The is mounted transversely and sits low the front wheels. The fact maximum torque of 350 Nm is on tap over a band of 1500 to 4000 rpm it is never found wanting. is little turbo lag and torque is non existent.

The last freshen up in came two years back the commercials adopted the corporate VW with a broad, horizontal which is simple, yet effective. We are not a fan of the rear cargo door as you at least two metres of rear for the door and the person opening it. is because this type of is needed for the van’s role as a holder in the Transporter line.

The interior is all about functionality for seven passengers in a 2-2-3 plus luggage, in as much as possible. What facilitates is sliding doors on either and the second and third rows of running on floor rail You can have almost as much area as you want — or as — depending on where you the second and third row of seats. Or, you can the third row altogether and make it a seater with a bundle of space.

Both the second and row of seats get overhead consoles air conditioning and lighting controls. So three-zone air-conditioning and four holders and three 1.5-litre holders. We like the step provided for passengers in both the and rear plus the fact are illuminated. There are 12 v sockets for all passenger rows and retractable on the side windows for the second and rows. We also like the handles above all passenger as it’s a vehicle that you to climb into.

The Multivan seems to have about every bit of safety going around — but not one of the important for a vehicle of this and use: There is no standard camera on Multivan although are front and rear parking As a seven seater you would to see this vehicle at hotels, and resorts — places abound in people chaos, little people.

A reversing is available as an option. What is, is impressive: front and side and rear curtain airbags, program, ABS brakes, brake anti-slip regulation, hill rear fog lamps, auto after take off, child safety locks on doors and child anchor on back of rear seats.

One of the that has not changed with vans is the forward vision the driving position. It has always excellent. The interior layout of the panel and dash is very easy to navigate and use. The position is like a pilot’s in a ship: comfortable with arm and support where you need it. The reservation we had from a driving is the gear lever that out from the dash is close to the wheel and indicator stalk.

Three times in the first two we knocked the gear shifter neutral when reaching for the It didn’t happen again this, so it’s something you accustomed. During our test we 8.3 litres/100 km on the open road and litres/100 km around town. For of the time we were one-up, so consumption would rise passengers or cargo aboard.

DSG transmissions seem to vary a lot some are uncertain at low speeds, not — but we found this one well at all speeds. It is a lovely with the engine and no doubt a major part in making the TSI 350 feel light and lively. its ride height Multivan has good road manners. roll is minimal making for a ride for passengers. The straight-line is quite remarkable and this is one van will not be embarrassed off at the lights. is a well balance package rates among the more vehicles we have driven year.
