The Transport Panel Van was voted International Van of the Year for the third time in 2016. This exceedingly practical commercial vehicle is now in its sixth generation and is more stylish and better-equipped than ever.
As smart as it is versatile, the Transporter features black door handles, (electrically adjustable and heated) door mirrors and bumpers. A near-side sliding door and 180-degree-opening rear wing doors provide flexible access. The Transporter Panel Van is available in a range of sizes, including short and long wheelbase iterations. The former offers low and medium roof options, while the latter additionally provides a high roof variant. Highline trims add daytime running lights, front fog lamps and 16-inch alloy wheels.
The Transporter’s cab features an adjustable driver’s seat, offering lumbar support, and a dual-passenger seat. Depending on which variant you choose, cargo capacity ranges from 5,800 litres to 9,300 litres. Payload comes in 1,274kg and 1,331kg options. Maximum load length options are 2.57 metres and 2.98 metres, while the vehicle’s maximum load width is 1.70 metres. Steel flooring and a minimum of six load-lashing rings are standard. A full-height steel bulkhead is a feature of Trendline trims. An auto-dimming rear-view mirror, climatic air conditioning, a heated windscreen and a leather multifunction steering wheel are available with Highline grades.
A range of 2.0-litre diesel engines deliver between 83bhp and 204bhp. Lower-powered units come with five-speed manual transmission, while higher-powered versions are paired with six-speed gearboxes. A 178bhp engine achieves 0-60mph in a little over ten seconds. The Start/Stop system ensures that fuel is not wasted and CO2 emissions are kept to an absolute minimum by automatically switching off the engine whenever the Transporter comes to a halt.
A four-speaker sound system includes DAB radio and a CD player. Bluetooth®, USB and AUX connectivity is also featured. Driver aids include an Electronic Stability Programme, Traction Control, Anti-lock Braking System, Automatic Post-Collision Braking System and Hill Hold. Passive safety features such as seatbelt reminders and multiple airbags are standard inclusions. Trendline grades add Cruise Control and rear parking sensors.
