First, let’s talk pricing. Contrary to the indicative prices VW previously announced, the Multivan Kombi will start at P3,595,000. Two-tone models, meanwhile, will cost an additional P45,000. All units will come with a two-year, unlimited-mileage warranty on both engine and spare parts.
As for the specs, it was already confirmed that the van will pack a 2.0-liter TDI diesel engine that generates 148hp and 350Nm of torque mated to a seven-speed Direct Shift gearbox. Now, we get a better idea of all the added niceties inside.
For starters, the dual sliding doors and the tailgate are all automatic. Inside, it’ll get dual swivel captain seats and a multi-function table as standard, as well as three-zone climatronic air-conditioning. The eight-inch infotainment system up front will also have Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay.
There are also driver- and safety-assist features aplenty. Apart from the six airbags, there’s active park assist and park distance control with a reversing camera, and hill-start assist. Crosswind assist is also fitted as standard—this tech helps stabilize the vehicle through course-correcting braking at 80kph or faster, keeping it from drifting away from its lane.
There are also multiple drive profiles available, namely: Normal, Comfort, Sport, Eco, and Individual. The last allows full customization of steering, engine, cruise control, and A/C settings.
The Multivan Kombi will also be offered with four color options as standard, two of which are the two-tone Reflex Silver with Starlight Blue Metallic or Fontana Red. There will also be 12 additional color options available through special orders.
