The price of convenience

Volkswagenís Multivan is now more user-friendly, with electric sliding rear doors added to simplify dealer orders and stock movements. The doors were previously a $2680 option on the single turbo TDI340 but now add at least $3000 to the price, so itís a backwards step in terms of value.

However, VW says it will ensure the sought-after feature will be available to customers sooner.
