Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is launching an anniversary model to celebrate over 25 years since the first Multivan was built.

The ‘Edition25’ Multivan is based on the current Multivan Comfortline, but offers even more finesse. It will only be available in Candy White paint and ‘Nappa’ leather interior trim in grey and anthracite highlights, so that the special touches are shown off to best effect. The model can be recognised above all by its matte black roof and black 18-inch alloy wheels. Further features include: black handles on driver and front passenger doors; a black B-pillar; black decal trim on the back of the vehicle and the side sills; and matte black paintwork on the bottom part of the front bumper.

The height-adjustable, ergonomic seats for driver and front passenger and the individually adjustable, sliding rows of seats in the back enable passengers to enjoy the high level of comfort that has been associated with the Volkswagen Multivan.

The height and angle of the multifunctional leather steering wheel can be adjusted, thus guaranteeing driving comfort for drivers of all heights. The ‘RCD 310’ radio fitted as standard in the special model has a total of eight loudspeakers, plays MP3 files and interfaces with USB and other devices.

Also standard on the ‘Edition25’ Multivan is the Lane Change Assist system which identifies any vehicles in an area critical to the process of changing lane. LED lights in the wing mirrors provide signals to alert the driver to the potential danger. This system, complete with cruise control and ESP, is standard on the special ‘Edition25’ model. The model’s feature set also includes an automatic anti-glare rear-view mirror: as soon as the headlights of any following vehicle start to create too much glare, the mirror automatically darkens.

A sports chassis and strengthened anti-roll bar make the special model even more agile on the road. The ‘Edition25’ Multivan also features numerous extras in the area of comfort and safety: with front fog lamps with cornering lights as standard, daytime running lights, tyre pressure indicator, assisted final-closing (latching) for side and rear doors and rain sensor, making the vehicle comprehensively equipped.

The special ‘Edition25’ model is powered by the highly-efficient 2.0 litre biturbo engine with 132 kW of power. As far as customers are concerned, this means maximum power with minimum consumption. The highest performance of 132 kW is reached at 4000 rpm. At engine speeds as low as 1500 rpm, the biturbo delivers an impressive maximum torque of 400 Newton metres which remains constant at this level up to 2000 rpm. Considering these figures, the average diesel consumption of 8.1 l/100 km also represents a very low level. ‘Edition25’ Multivan with 132 kW TDI engine can be ordered as a front wheel drive version with Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG)

This special edition ‘Edition25’ Multivan is available in Australia from $66,990*.
