    Ve have vays of making you bored.

    Nice enough vehicle with interesting dimension variations available when the Transporter nexus is broken; tedious presentation.

    Haha!

    I think I will need to see it in the flesh. The interior updates and seat functionality seem a forward step but not the dimensions of the shorter version with less boot space. Not sure about the front appearance or the appearance of the longer version.

    Engine torque is down with nothing with 450nm or higher or 4 motion. I have read that the 4 motion 6.1 Multivan will continue along side the T7 Multivan. I wonder then if the 6.1 version will get a further update of the dash and interior ( per that of the T7) which would provide the best of both worlds or my tastes and requirements.

    More info out today.

    VW unveils seven-seat T7 Multivan to tempt families out of big SUVs

    I've been told that we must get 1. So if the 2.0 petrol turbo does come to Australia (with the 8spd proper auto), we will buy 1. My wife still misses the T5.1 we had

    A number of the online articles point to 7 speed DSG for all versions except the hybrid which will come with a 6 speed DSG. I can only hope it is a normal 8 speed auto. I am also interested in what the internal floor to roof dimensions will be for a wheelchair hoist for my disabled adult son. The short wheelbase version also looks to have less internal cargo capacity than the T5 or T6.

    Re two litre petrol turbo, I hope it has plenty of torque, but could still be a thirsty beast. Clearly they are not keen to offer a high powered diesel or 4motion.

    Hoping on the 8spd auto ... and btw the petrol turbos certainly have similar torque to the TDI's but also have a much better spread of torque than any TDI. Typically the VW TDI's make max torque over a very short peak ~750rmin whereas the VW TSI's make similar torque but for over ~2500 peak which makes them a whole lot more drivable.

    On the Amarok's (similar engines in the 2.0 range) the TDI's make max torque from 1750 to 2500rmin, whereas the TSI make max torque from 1800 to 4500 rmin .... this result in much different driving characteristics without massively impacting fuel economy. As a bonus you can rev the TSIs out to almost 7000rmin (and much higher kw) which makes overtaking a breeze.
