Volkswagen Kombi: Iconic van reprises role
The Kombi, a unique fixture of Philippine streets during the second half of the 20th century, endeared itself to the colorful motoring and socioeconomic culture of Filipinos. At the time, the Kombi had often become Filipinos’ first and longest-lasting encounter with a true people carrier, a vehicle originally designed, engineered and manufactured in the late 1940s. Volkswagen rolled-out the new addition to the brand’s list of savvy yet utilitarian automobiles in a virtual launch on July 21, 2021. The Kombi redefines luxury in a van and reeks with the prestige of a European automobile lineage that is truly a sight to behold and pleasure to touch. The Kombi Highline distinguishes itself from other Kombi variants such as the Transporter, which is designed for cargo and shuttle services, Caravelle which is used as an economical people carrier), and the California which is more of a family camper. The brand highlighted some of Kombi’s outstanding features like its elegant exterior lines, punctuated by the LED daytime running lights (DRL), headlights and taillights and 17-inch alloy wheels. Without being loud, the Multivan Kombi exudes prestige of success for owners with the spacious and ultra-comfortable cabin. The Multivan Kombi boasts second row captain seats that can swivel for face-to-face meetings while in transit. A multifunction folding table positioned between the second and third rows offers a stable spot for laptops, meals, and other tools of the trade. The 3-zone Climatronic Air Conditioning provides optimum comfort for passengers, wherever they may be seated. No time is wasted when it comes to parking the Multivan Kombi, as the rear camera and park distance control (PDC) eases backing maneuvers, while the park assist enables the vehicle to fit into tight parking slots without resorting to second guesses. The 8-inch Discover Media with navigation, android auto and wireless Apple CarPlay connectivity, coupled with the active info display, simultaneously provide the driver with invaluable information to better manage road awareness and enhance alertness and the occupants with connectivity and entertainment options.
