The acclaimed Volkswagen Transporter is one of the best-selling light panel vans, thanks to an expert combination of form and function.
The sixth-generation version has been given sharper lines, more chiselled bodywork and bolder headlights. The result is an even more striking on-road presence. Body-coloured bumpers feature on the mid-level model, while the range-topping Highline offers sleek alloy wheels.
Two wheelbases are available, with three roof heights and two seating arrangements. Top load volumes range from 5.8 to 9.3 cubic metresand payloads of up to 1,217kg. There’s also a double-cab Kombi configuration with two wheelbases and two seating layout options.
The carefully-crafted interior boasts a high-quality, granite-like build plus a host of practical features. You can expect a range of clever storage compartments, from an A4-sized, dashboard-mounted tray to handy storage bins below the passenger airbag.
Even the entry-level model features height, lumbar, reach and rake adjustment to ensure optimum driver comfort in all conditions. Move up to Trendline to get armrests, side storage compartments and enhanced noise suppression. The Highline receives plush leather covering on the multi-function steering wheel.
Euro 6 diesel engines are standard in the range to comply with European emissions legislation. 2.0-litre motors deliver 84bhp, 102bhp and 150bhp with a single turbo and promise up to 15 per cent improvements in fuel consumption. The top-of-the-range bi-turbo offers 204bhp. All units feature BlueMotion technology to minimise harmful emissions.
The 84bhp and 102bhp engines offer a five-speed manual gearbox, while others have six-speed versions. A brilliant seven-speed DSG automated transmission is also an option. If you regularly deal with challenging weather conditions or heavy loads, the 4MOTION four-wheel drive system will be a welcome addition.
Expect nothing less that top-quality safety technology – much of which is appearing in the Transporter for the first time. Examples include Active Cruise Control, Lane Change Assist and High Beam Assist to aid the driver.
All models have a DAB digital radio, Bluetooth and an intuitive five-inch touchscreen display – which is compatible with USB, SD card and AUX inputs. You can easily charge your devices on the move. As a bonus, electric windows and heated electric mirrors are standard across the range.
