NVS Verdict: The Transporter is simply the most iconic van in the world. Some 12 million of them have been sold since launch in 1950 – and judging by Britain’s holiday roads, half of them still seem to be running!

New Transporter T6

Transporter T6

What is it?

VW claims the Transporter is the second most popular commercial van in the UK and the new one features a raft of updates to improve efficiency, comfort and equipment levels over previous generations.

The T6 comes with four Euro 6 2.0-litre diesel engines that offer 84psi, 102psi, 150psi and 204psi outputs.

All Transporter engines are equipped with VW’s BlueMotion technology modifications as standard, which means low rolling resistance tyres, regenerative braking and Start/Stop systems to reduce fuel consumption.

As a result the 102psi engine returns 47.9mpg (a 10.2mpg improvement over the previous)  and emits 153g/km (a reduction of 45g/km). The vans come with five and six-speed manual gearbox and a seven-speed DSG automatic as standard.

A new 6.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system has been installed, which uses proximity sensors to switch between ‘display’ and ‘input’ modes. This basically means that when you move your hand close to the screen, options come up for you to touch. If your hand isn't close-by, a larger map is displayed as the options aren't required.

It also doubles as a mobile phone interface, allowing access to the vehicle’s antenna and USB ports. The Transporter’s navigation systems are equipped with Car-Net's Guide & Inform services to provide rapid data access, so it should be one of the quicker systems out there.

What’s hot

  • A single 2.0-litre unit is on offer in Euro 6 format, with power outputs of 84bhp, 102bhp, 150bhp and 204bhp.
  • All the engines have been tweaked for better fuel economy, while promising no sacrifices in driving dynamics. These engines offer up to 15% better fuel economy.
  • Every model comes with a BlueMotion badge on the back, which means stop-start comes as standard across the range, along with regenerative braking and low rolling resistance tyres,
  • The cab is completely new – and a very nice job the VW designers have done too. The seats are softer, which is welcome as the old ones were a tad hard, while there’s a new dash with lots of extra cubby holes and two coffee cup holder on the top of the dash within easy reach of driver and passengers.
  • An extra 12-volt take-off has been placed on top of the dash so that when you plug in your own sat-nav device, it doesn’t leave wires dangling about getting in the way.
  • Every T6 gets automatic post-collision braking, which helps prevent secondary collisions, a driver alert system which gives a visual and audio signal if it thinks the driver needs a break, brake assist which adds extra brake pressure if needed in an emergency and hill-hold assist.
