BOTANY AUSTRALIA – May 28, 2009: Volkswagen’s Multivan Highline Diesel, has won ‘Best People Mover of the Year’ at the 2009 Delivery Magazine Awards.

The Volkswagen Multivan offers outstanding space, tremendous flexibility and the quality you would expect from Volkswagen. The main features of the Multivan include the capacity to carry up to 7 people, Electronic Stability Program (ESP) with ABS, six airbags (dual front, driver and passenger side and full-length curtain), front and rear parking sensors, rotating 2nd row of seats with integrated seatbelts and a multifunction table (collapsible, sliding and removable).

Available with either a diesel (2.5L TDI/128kW) or petrol (3.2L V6/173kW) engine, the Volkswagen Multivan also offers two trim levels to choose from – Comfortline or Highline.

“The Multivan range has all the makings of a great people mover and I am very pleased it has been recognised,” said Mr Phil Clark, Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. “Volkswagen has been building people movers for over 50 years so you could say we know a thing or two about how to build a good quality and practical vehicle.”

Managing Editor and publisher of Delivery Magazine, Mr Chris Mullett, said “The Volkswagen Multivan is just as much at home taking the kids to school as moving executives form the boardroom to the airport. As it gains greater recognition it could revolutionise the hire car market in Australia.”
