VW Multivan Comfortline TSi 350 (2013)

by John Ewing,reviewed February 2013

VW MULTIVAN mounts a strong case for consideration by those after a seven-seat people mover thanks to its appealing practical virtues, seating versatility and above-average road manners.
The standard safety equipment is good and includes curtain airbags for all three rows of seats in their two/two/three layout.

Front seats prove comfortable, with height and lumbar adjustment and adjustable armrests provided on both. The second row seats swivel, adjust fore and aft on the full-length tracks, or can be removed to increase load space. The third row bench also slides longitudinally and can be reclined, or converted into a bed. Operating the third row seat adjustments can be a bit fiddly, while its removal at near-90 kg is a two-person operation.

Heating and airconditioning vents for all seat rows helps improve occupant comfort.

A full-size spare wheel, good oddments stowage space inside, five child restraint points, a ‘walk thru’ feature between the front seats and rear cabin, plus multiple auxiliary power outlets all boost Multivan’s practicality.

Our Comfortline test car lived up to its name with a comfortable and composed ride under most road conditions. Steering is pleasantly weighted and accurate, while road holding proved surprisingly capable and, by class standards, impressive.
