Special sporty model: ‘Edition25’ Multivan for the top seller’s birthday

• The first Multivan was built 25 years ago
• Black touches give the special model a dramatic look

Hanover, 21st September 2010 – The year 1985: then just 17 years old, Boris Becker becomes the first German to win the Men’s Final at Wimbledon, ‘Rock am Ring’ takes place for the first time and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles builds the first Multivan. The Multivan concept closes the gap between the working day and the weekend – the highly versatile MPV is born! Fittingly for the Multivan’s 25th anniversary, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is now launching a special model.

This special model is based on the current Multivan Comfortline, but offers even more finesse. It will only be available, for instance, in Candy White, Salsa Red or Metallic Silver so that the planned special touches are shown off to best effect. The model can be recognised above all by its matt 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 matt 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 they are used to in a 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 includes a digital radio (DAB) receiver.

The ‘Side Assist’ lane-changing aid 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, 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 goes darker.

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 fog lamps including adaptive lights as standard, daytime running lights and Running Light Assist, tyre pressure indicator and rain sensor the vehicle is comprehensively equipped. There is also another anniversary being celebrated through the launch of the ‘Edition25’ Multivan: it was also 25 years ago that the first Transporter with four-wheel drive was built. The four-wheel drive anniversary is being celebrated with a 132kW DSG 4Motion version of the special ‘Edition25’ model.
