VW announces prices and details for its latest T6 Transporter commercial vehicle, on sale in July with the range kicking off at £17,745.
After the full reveal of Volkswagen’s sixth-generation Transporter earlier this year, we’ve now got full prices and specifications for UK buyers. It’ll be available to order on the 5th of July from £17,745, with customer deliveries commencing in September.
The new T6 Transporter starts from £17,745 with three trim levels available. Buyers have a choice of four versions of a more efficient 2.0-litre diesel engine and new assistance and safety systems.
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 Transporter range comes with three trim levels and prices for the entry level Startline model begin at £17,745 before rising to £21,315 for top of the range Highline. Prices for the Kombi passenger version start from £19,840.
The T6 comes with four Euro5 2.0-litre diesel engines that offer 83bhp, 101bhp, 138bhp and 178bhp outputs.Two versions of 2.0-litre diesels that meet Euro6 standards will be added to the range over the course of the next 12 months.
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 101bhp 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. The prices for the Shuttle, Caravelle and California models are due to be announced soon.
