Introduction

The Volkswagen Transporter is now in its sixth generation and has always enjoyed a loyal following among users who need a working vehicle with a little extra quality. It shares design cues with the rest of the Volkswagen range – restrained, yet classy. Higher-specification editions will appeal to self-employed owners who spend a lot of their working day on the road and demand car-like cabin ambiance and refinement, while also needing a tough, reliable and capacious vehicle.

Design and Capacity

The Transporter and the closely-related Kombi Transporter with its crew cab are both available with a choice of two wheelbases and three roof sizes. Load compartment volumes span from 5.8m3 to 9.3m3. In its largest form the Transporter can accommodate up to three standard Euro-pallets, with a potential payload of up to 1,301kg. Every Transporter is available with a choice of either a large tailgate or versatile rear wing doors. Both are available glazed or in solid metal for added security.


Performance

The range includes both petrol and diesel engines. Most commercial operators will opt for diesel and all the engines in the Transporter range are Euro 6 compatible, with start/stop system as standard, regenerative braking and low rolling resistance tyres. Power outputs range from 84PS to the 204PS Bi-turbodiesel of the Sportline. 5- or 6-speed manual gearboxes come as standard but there’s also the option of the fast-shifting and efficient 7-speed DSG. If you prefer a petrol engine, you can choose between a 2.0 litre TSI with 150PS and the 2.0 litre TSI with 204PS, both of which have a direct injection system. The Transporter is front-wheel drive, but the 4Motion all-wheel drive system is available as an option for those whose work takes them off-road or out and about in foul weather.

Technology

Even the entry-level Startline is equipped with Bluetooth phone connectivity and a DAB radio, plus CD and SD, with helpful technology like Driver Alert and central locking. Move up the range or options list and the specification becomes more car-like, with features like Discovery Media navigation that offers real-time online-based information, adaptive cruise control, rear parking camera, cornering lights and automatically-dimming headlights.

Safety

Volkswagen’s well-earned reputation for safety shines through in features like Front Assist with City Emergency Braking and Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, all of which come as standard. ESP, ABS and Traction Control keep you on your selected course and Lane Change Assist is available as an option on short wheelbase models.

Verdict: with a wide choice of engines, wheelbases, roof heights and door configurations it will be a rare business that can’t find the perfect specification Transporter for their needs. Over the years the Transporter has acquired a loyal following, while top specification models like the Sportline have earned near-legendary status among the van-owning cognoscenti. But whatever trim level you choose, you’ll have made a smart choice.
