Synopsis on Volkswagen Euro van


From 1970’s till 90’s Volkswagen was replacing its rear-engined vehicles with more modern front-engined models. It happened with Volkswagen Vanagon, a rear engined van that was replaced in 1993 with the front-engined Euro Van. Because the engine was mounted in the front, TDI diesel engines with direct injection were used to power the vehicle.
