An updated Euro 6 compliant engine range, car-like levels of comfort and quality plus a host of advanced safety technology has earned the new Transporter T6 justified attention within the LCV industry, establishing it as the Auto Express Van of the Year 2016.

The new Transporter range, available from September, offers a wealth of body styles, drive options and a comprehensive list of safety equipment. The economical engine makes it one of the greenest vans of its size on the market.

Auto Express editor-in-chief, Steve Fowler: “The Volkswagen Transporter sets a very high standard in terms of comfort and refinement while the cab environment delivers genuinely car-like levels of quality. The level of safety technology built into the van is excellent, while class-leading residual values contribute to a powerful value proposition. It all goes towards making the Transporter an excellent tool for businesses of all sizes.”
