VW Transporter Sportline For UK


Even though vans are not meant to be sporty, and van drivers are not really the sports, but Volkswagen decided to introduce some style and fun to this otherwise boring automotive segment.

The result is the Transporter Sportline, which maintains its characteristics as a functional van but comes with unique styling touches and extra equipments. So you would actually enjoy driving it, which means you will enjoy your work more. That’s brilliant!

The car gets new blacked-out features on the exterior plus lots of chrome detailing which make it look cool and crisp. It also gets 18-inch ‘Sportline 5-spoke’ alloys also finished in black, new funky colors and smoked lights. All models are fitted with the refined and efficient 2.0-litre BiTDI 180 PS diesel engine, and are offered with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard.

The seven-speed DSG transmission is available as an option on all models for a £1,400 premium. Speaking of price, the new Sportline specification is available on both panel van and kombi models, in both short- and long-wheelbase with prices starting from £28,220 (excluding VAT) for the panel van and £30,100 (excluding VAT) for the kombi.

More details in the press release below:

The new models feature bold, sporty styling while retaining all of the practicality and functionality synonomous with the Transporter.  At the front, a striking gloss black grille with chrome detailing is framed by revised headlights.  Below this, the redesigned colour-coded bumper incorporates front fog lights which sit either side of the lower grille element.

Additional styling cues include polished stainless steel side bars and unique 18-inch ‘Sportline 5-spoke’ alloys, finished in silver or satin black, while smoked rear light units and a rear roof spoiler further differentiate the Sportline models.  The aggressive and purposeful look is complemented by the choice of stylish paint finishes: Reflex Silver metallic, Deep Black pearlescent or, the optional, Candy White with a contrasting gloss black roof .

Inside, the practical and comfortable interior of the Transporter cabin has been further enhanced with all Sportline models featuring exclusive two-tone leather upholstery.

As with the entire Transporter range, the new range-topping Sportline models feature class-leading levels of safety with ABS, ESP (Electronic Stabilisation Programme) and EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution).

In addition, all Sportline models are fitted with an extensive list of additional equipment including semi-automatic air conditioning, multimedia system including seven-inch colour touch screen with full European satellite navigation, rear parking sensors, built-in Bluetooth connectivity and electric windows.
