Volkswagen is consolidating its model range with the new Multivan T7, which will replace the withdrawal of Touran and Sharan in the future. To make it more suitable as a family car, the Germans changed the platform, choosing the MQB Evo as the technological base to be able to offer technologies and refinement worthy of a premium vehicle. In parallel, Transporter utility versions will continue to be produced on the old T6 platform.

The new platform allows Volkswagen to offer for the first time in the range a hybrid version with plug-in charging, but also a future electric version ID.Buzz, from next year. Both modern assistance systems and a modern atmosphere inside bring Bulli into the 21st century. The new Multivan T7 receives a cockpit derived from that of the Golf 8.

Volkswagen Multivan T7: Radical changes

The concept of seats has evolved in turn, allowing the individual configuration of the five rear seats. Volkswagen says it has reduced their mass by 25% compared to the seat configuration of the T6.1. The seats can be slid back and forth on the rails, the ones in the middle row can be rotated 180 degrees, and in the middle there is a table that can be configured as a center console for those in front. For the first time, the Multivan can be configured with a panoramic glass roof.

The dashboard is dominated by the 10.25-inch screen of the virtual cockpit, which is completed by the central screen of the infotainment system. Optionally, a head-up display can be configured, another premiere of the Volkswagen commercial vehicle range.

At launch, the Multivan T7 can be configured either as a hybrid plug-in (218 hp, up to 50 km of electric range) or with one of the two petrol engines – 1.5 TSI / 136 hp or 2.0 TSI / 204 hp. The 2.0 TDI / 150 hp diesel engine, a constant presence of Volkswagen commercial models, will not be available until next year. The DSG gearbox is standard regardless of version.

Volkswagen Multivan T7 has as a direct rival Mercedes-Benz V-Class, which aims to dominate the luxury MPV segment.
