Volkswagen's all-new MPV has been completely redesigned, offering more features than ever before. It is, quite frankly, so different and drastically improved from the Caravelle that it even has a new name, the Volkswagen Multivan.
One of Volkswagen's most iconic cars ever, was the original 1960s minivan, going down in history as nothing shy of an icon. Over the years, new models came in to replace the old, but time and time again, the Volkswagen minivans proved to be among the most desirable Volkswagen vehicles ever produced.
With that legacy in check, Volkswagen had no easy challenge with designing the all-new Multivan.
At first glance, the new Volkswagen Multivan has clearly undergone some major design changes. It's been given a fresh and modern appearance, while its two-tone paint job pays homage to its heritage.
The new Multivan now features the Volkswagen MQB platform, which is also found in the Volkswagen Tiguan and Seat Tarraco. This will ultimately change the entire driving experience to something far more desirable than just a van.
The base model Multivan features a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 134 bhp. There is also a 2.0-litre variant that produces a beefier 201 bhp, and there's a diesel option as well. However, it's the plug-in hybrid model that grabs everyone's attention. The Multivan hybrid features a 1.4-litre turbo engine combined with an electric motor which, together, makes 215 bhp. It also brags a far better fuel consumption than the other variants in the Multivan lineup.
