You might need had the identical thought I did when first seeing the three-row 2025 Volkswagen ID. Buzz: what is the take care of that little window?
Encased inside an entire bunch of different tinted glass on the Buzz’s sliding rear doorways is a small window. It was instantly obvious that this small window exists as a result of the remainder of the window clearly would not go down like they do on different vans, however what is the deal?
Effectively, for starters, it is a sliding window. Volkswagen factors out that its earlier busses had sliding rear home windows. Truthful sufficient. The primary motive, nevertheless, is that the Buzz’s rear aspect home windows match completely flush with the physique work to attain that oh-so-cool look and slippery aerodynamics. If you would like completely flush home windows, they cannot roll down into the door. The answer is a sliding sub window like this.
Nevertheless, it is necessary to see what this window appears like from inside.
From the second-row, the sliding window portion takes up 100% of the viewable space. You’d do not know there’s all that cup above and under on the skin. In different phrases, it is not as unusual inside. The home windows themselves could also be a tad small in top, I suppose, however the total glass space within the Buzz is immense and the cabin is ethereal generally.
The home windows are managed, clearly, via switches on the doorways themselves. You can too management them from the driving force’s door, however here is the place the facepalm is available in …
Volkswagen makes use of the identical ridiculous controls because the ID.4, which omits rear window switches altogether. There are simply two window switches, and to regulate the rear ones, you first need to brush the “rear” icon, hope it acknowledges you, and word if the “rear” illuminates. If it does, you’ll be able to roll down the rear home windows. Sorry, slide open the rear home windows.
