New Volkswagen T6 Transporter revealed

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has unveiled the new T6 Transporter with evolutionary design. Exterior updates include a new front fascia with a new grille, more angular headlights in line with rest of the VW models, larger air intakes, rounded wheel arches, straight lines and a new tailgate along with an integrated spoiler.

Engine range is more efficient and includes a range of 2.0-litre diesel engines that produce from 83bhp to 201bhp on the most powerful version. All engines come with a standard automatic engine stop-start system, helping T6 make on average 15% more economical than the model it replaces.

More powerful engines will be available with an optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

Inside changes are bigger compared to the exterior and include a new dashboard, metallic accents and a high-tech infotainment system with a 6.33-inch display, featuring proximity sensors that detect when the driver or front passenger moves their hand close to the touchscreen, so it can automatically switch from display mode to input mode.

Other goodies include adaptive cruise control, adjustable shock absorbers and a City Emergency Braking system which can automatically apply the brakes, Light Assist system that automatically dims the high beams when oncoming traffic is detected.

UK pricing and final specs will be announced closer to market launch.
