VOLKSWAGEN is out to cut it among competitors, with their equivalent of the famous Swiss Army knife – the TRISTAR, at the Hanover show.
Embodying features of the current T model series, it brings extreme off-road capability and flexible storage solutions to users.
Basically a beefy pick-up with extended cab, styling bar and short wheelbase. The TRISTAR also has permanent four-wheel drive, with mechanical rear axle differential lock and 30mm additional ground clearance.
As befitting its name, the designers have produced a new – yet familiar design language.
These include the sharp wrap-around lines, LED headlights, plus the wide and purposeful stance.
Cargo can be placed on two separate levels: there is a spacious, dust-proof and watertight drawer under the flatbed section. This is also home to a deep-tread spare tire.
The interior features a 20-inch tablet table, state-of-the-art video conferencing and sound system, with driver and passenger seats which can turn and slide. There’s even an espresso machine installed!
The monolithic dashboard is reminiscent of earlier Transporter models offering clear and sharp lines.
Its extreme off-road capability is combined with flexible transport and storage solutions, that turn the TRISTAR into a mobile workshop and high-tech office.
