Introducing the brand new generation Volkswagen Transporter

Volkswagen Transporter T6
Sixty five years and six generations later, the newest Transporter is here. Meet the T6.

The VW Transporter has been at the forefront of the commercial vehicle market for generations, first making an appearance in 1950 and remaining an iconic van ever since.

The newest generation of Volkswagen Transporter to grace UK shores keeps the same shape as the T5, but with a few striking styling updates. Volkswagen blur the lines between car and van as the new Transporter shows off a full width grille and sleeker headlights, not unlike that on the Tiguan car.

As the UK vehicle marketplace becomes more and more eco-friendly, it's no surprise that the 2016 Transporter comes with a new generation of both 2.0 TDi and BiTDI diesel engines. All new vans will be built with engines that include the coveted BlueMotion Technology kit, making Start/Stop, low rolling resistance tyres and regenerative braking a standard feature on all Transporters. Although the current Euro 5 engines will be available until next September, more popular derivatives are offered with the Euro 6 engines. Overall, the T6 reduces fuel consumption by an average of 15% - which definitely puts it on the list if you're looking to reduce your total fleet operating costs.

All trim levels, even the lowest bracket Startline, now include a 5" touchscreen, Bluetooth and a DAB+ radio as standard - keeping you well connected on the road. Electric windows and heated electric mirrors are fitted to each and every Volkswagen Transporter, while the highest spec Highline van also features a heated windscreen, auto lights and wipers, auto-dimming rear-view mirrors, coming home and leaving home lighting, and climatic air conditioning.

For fleet managers who need assurance that their drivers will be using the latest in vehicle safety technology, the new Transporter provides ample peace of mind. Both driver and passenger airbags are standard, as well as post-collision braking, brake assist and a driver alert system.
