5 reasons the Volkswagen Multivan Kombi promises to be a choice executive van

MANILA: Volkswagen Philippines officially introduced the Volkswagen Kombi Highline through a virtual launch yesterday. The iconic people carrier finally made its comeback in the country, this time in a premium and top-of-the-line form.

The Kombi was first introduced in the Philippines in the second half of the 20th century. Its availability in the local market became the Filipinos’ first and longest-lasting encounter with a real people carrier, a vehicle originally produced in the 1940s to express the definition of community in its own way.

The Multivan Kombi is redefined by adding various premium features. The upgraded Kombi is positioned to be an ideal ride for executives who can enjoy the vehicle’s sophisticated and luxurious features and safety technologies.

The Multivan Kombi is a fresh take on Volkswagen’s multivans. It differentiates itself from other Kombi configurations such as the Transporter which is used for cargo and shuttle services, the Caravalle which is used as a practical people mover, and California which is used as a family camper.

According to different business executives across the globe, these are the top five reasons why the Volkswagen Multivan Kombi is the most ideal executive van:

It demonstrates power and authority

The Multivan Kombi features a luxurious design that is accentuated by its commanding stature and neat exterior lines. It is also equipped with LED daytime running lights (DRLs), headlights, taillights, and 17-inch alloy wheels. It is also designed with a commodious and ultra-comfortable cabin.

It offers a deluxe ride experience

The Multivan Kombi is upholstered with a posh Nappa leather interior and captain seats on the front and second rows. It is also equipped with electric dual sliding doors for easier ingress and egress. It also has a power tailgate that allows hands-free opening and closing of the rear hatch doors to make cargo loading more convenient.

It combines luxury with functionality

The Multivan Kombi comes with various premium amenities, comfort, convenience, and connectivity features. The second row captain seats can swivel so the occupants can conduct face-to-face meetings while on the road. The cabin is also equipped with a multifunction folding table where passengers can put their laptops, meals, and other stuff. It also features a three-zone Climatronic air conditioning system that offers premium comfort for every passenger. The Multivan Kombi also comes with a rear camera, park distance control, and park assist to make parking easier and safer even on tight spots.

The vehicle is equipped with an Active Info Display that shows the relevant information to help the driver manage road awareness and enhance alertness. Meanwhile, the eight-inch Discover Media display comes with navigation and Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay connectivity to provide the occupants with entertainment options.

Hassle-free journeys

“The true measure of a premium executive vehicle’s performance can be seen by how much it allows you to forget that you’re in transit, so you could fully immerse yourself in your passions, or engage companions in productive interaction,” Volkswagen Philippines said in a statement. The Multivan Kombi is powered by a 2.0-liter TDI engine mated to a seven-speed DSG transmission. The engine generates 150ps and 340Nm of torque, ensuring sufficient power. It also comes with a Driver Profile Select with Dynamic Chassis Control that allows the driver to customize individual configuration based on steering, engine, cruise control, and air-conditioning parameters. They can also select among four drive modes: Normal, Sport, Comfort, and Eco.

To ensure that every ride is safe and fuss-free, the Multivan Kombi is equipped with six airbags, electronic stabilization program (ESP), anti-slip regulation (ASR), electronic differential lock (EDL), and hill start assist (HSA). The ESP also comes with Crosswind Assist, a feature that automatically enables course-corrective braking when strong crosswinds are encountered and the vehicle is running above 80kph.

The Multivan Kombi requires less maintenance and ownership costs

Every purchase of the Multivan Kombi comes with a two-year warranty coverage, two-year spare parts warranty, and a 12-year no-through corrosion. Volkswagen dealers also guarantee at least a three-month stock availability on fast-moving parts for either general repair or collision parts. All dealers also provide first-class service quality as they hire only the most qualified technicians who underwent a comprehensive technical and online training. Volkswagen Philippines also provides free 24/7 emergency roadside assistance.

The Multivan Kombi is available in four standard colors: Black Pearlescent, Reflex Silver, and the bi-color Reflex Silver/Starlight Blue Metallic and Reflex Silver/Fontana Red. Customers can also choose among the 12 color variants which are available for special orders: Fontana Red, Ravenna Blue, Starlight Blue, Mojave Beige, Bay Leaf Green, Copper Bronze, Indium Grey, Candy White, and the Bi-Colors Reflex Silver/Indium Grey, Mojave Beige/Black Pearl, Candy White/Bay Leaf Green, and Candy White/Copper Bronze.

“Whatever hue the Multivan may be wrapped in, there is always the global Volkswagen guarantee that every Kombi that rolls onto Philippine streets and takes its revered place in plush garages has the same consistent world-class level of German precision and automobile craftsmanship as other Multivan Kombis anywhere in the world,” Volkswagen Philippines stated.

The monocolor variants of the Kombi Highline are priced at P3.595 million, while the bi-color variants are priced at P3.64 million.

“The Kombi’s long-running journey in the Philippines thus, continues. New stories will begin, as well. From the opulent confines of the Multivan Kombi, such stories will be told by a new generation of achievers, movers and shakers, the who’s who of elite companies, the decision-makers, and captains of industries to an audience eager for inspiring figures to move them to their own successes,” Volkswagen Philippines added.
