After Six Decades of Success Explore the Latest Volkswagen Transporter Panel Van the T6.1

Volkswagen commercial vans form the backbone of many businesses, and there are plenty that couldn't do without them. The Transporter family of vans has offered reliable vehicles for six decades, and the new Transporter 6.1 is the latest edition of the iconic van. The new member of the Transporter family has a focus on up-to-date technology, featuring more digital and connected features than any previous model. In addition to changes to the van's performance and functionality, it has a redesigned exterior and has been built with driver comfort in mind. The T6.1 has been designed to meet the demands of the modern driver and business.

New Exterior and Interior Design

On first glance, the changes to the latest Transporter model are immediately obvious. A newly designed front end includes high-intensity H7 headlights and daytime running lights, and there are also LED lights at the rear. The alloy wheels have a new look too, while the inside of the vehicle has also been given an overhaul to include new digital features. The stylish new design is sure to turn some heads and is reflective of the changes to the van's performance and features too.

Focus on Driver Comfort

Drivers will enjoy a comfortable experience in the T6.1, with a choice of seating options, including adjustable individual seats and electric four-way lumbar support. A comfortable driving experience is created with features such as the hydraulic power steering and a range of driver assistance technology, which helps to improve both comfort and safety for the driver. With Park Assist, drivers can park with ease, focusing on the pedals while the vehicle does the steering work to get into tight spaces.

Digital, Connected Van

The most connected member of the Transporter family yet, the T6.1 has a number of digital features. The Digital Cockpit with its 10.25-inch display offers information to the driver, using clear graphics. The Discover Media and Discover Pro systems have received an update, with new graphics and button layout, and the ability to personalise the home screen with preferred apps. The integrated SIM card in the infotainment system (standard with Composition Colour and available as an option on Composition Audio) enables various connected features, such as emergency eCall in an accident.

Safety Features

Driver assistance systems in the new-design van make driving the T6.1 safer. They include Lane Assist, Park Assist, Cross Wind Assistance and Trailer Assist to provide an easier and safer driving experience. Automatic eCall assistance in the event of an accident also helps to protect the driver, contacting an emergency response centre to establish a connection.

Improved Engine

The T6.1 has a reworked engine range, with 2.0-litre turbodiesel engines for front-wheel drive vans. All of the engines available comply with the Euro-6d-TEMP-EVAP emissions standard for a cleaner vehicle. A choice of engine and gearbox combinations includes DSG dual clutch gearbox and 4MOTION all-wheel drive.
