The TGE’s dashboard is split horizontally to create a cup-sized storage section for both the driver and passenger, while on top of the dash you’ll find three open areas, also with two cupholders.
Specify the navigation system, and the screen fills the central section, but it’s sharp and easy to read, even in bright sunlight. The other option is a MAN Media Van radio with a basic black and white display, although this does still include an SD-card slot, aux-in and USB connections, and Bluetooth connectivity.
If you don’t add either, all you get is Bluetooth. In fact, everything from air conditioning (manual or automatic), right down to a lockable glovebox or 12v power socket cost extra.
It can get complicated figuring out exactly what you will and won’t need, given the huge range of options packs that are available, but MAN’s approach does mean you can buy one of the best vans on the market for a very low price if you’re happy to forgo many of the niceties it can offer.
We’d recommend adding the overhead storage, as well as the Driver’s Comfort Plus seat, which is four-way adjustable and very supportive.
