The all-wheel-drive Volkswagen Multivan Alltrack concept has been unveiled at a function before tomorrow's Geneva motor show, hinting at a future production version.
Powered by a 132kW/400Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, the Volkswagen Multivan Alltrack concept teams a seven-speed dual-clutch DSG automatic transmission with a rear axle-installed multi-plate Haldex coupling to offer all-paw traction.
Following a trend seen on the Volkswagen Passat Alltrack, as well as fellow Volkswagen Group models the Skoda Octavia Scout and Audi A4- and A6-based Allroads, the Multivan Alltrack features an increased ride height, protective grey plastic cladding and matt silver underbody protection panels.
Riding on 19-inch alloy wheels, Volkswagen claims a 21-degree approach angle and a 15-inch departure angle. Inside the multipurpose van is blue Poltrona Frau natural leather upholstery, dark brown wood trim accents, an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen and a Dynaudio Surround Sound system with a centrally-mounted speaker.
A mobile kitchen module with a gas cooker and a sink also takes pride of place in the concept’s rear, mounted securely via the van’s versatile floor track system.
Until a production version of the concept is announced, the currently available Volkswagen Mutltivan TDI400 Highline with 4Motion, starting from $77,990, will have to suffice.
