About The MV
The Eurovan Multivan (MV) is similar to the Weekender version, except there is no pop top, and no cooler under the rear facing seat. Seating 6, the Eurovan MV has a forward-facing center bench that converts into a 3-person bed. In 1999, VW installed a V6 engine rated at 140 HP, 2.8-liter VR6 to yield more torque in the Eurovan MV than it does in other VW models. A 3-speed automatic is the only transmission option. The Eurovan MV has a 4400-pound towing capacity (if equipped with assisted braking), and had a cargo capacity of 1/2 ton. Low-speed traction control is standard, along with fully independent suspension, rack-and-pinion steering, antilock braking, a reinforced floor panel, a daytime running light option, as well as a child safety lock for the sliding door. These versatile vans come standard with power windows, a pollen/dust filter, air conditioning, power locks, cruise control, 6-speaker stereo, intermittent wipers, heated windshield-washer nozzles, rear wiper/washer, and power mirrors. In 2001, the Eurovan MV's engine was substantially revised and gained 61 horsepower to a powerful 201HP, 2.8 liter V-6. Antiskid system and rear child-seat anchors were also added as standard features.
