Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has launched a Sportline version of the latest T6.1 Transporter. The model is offered in panel van and Kombi versions, on both short and long wheelbase versions. Powered by the range-topping 204hp version of the Transporter’s 2.0-litre diesel engine, the Sportline comes with a seven-speed DSG transmission as standard.
The vans ride on 18” alloy wheels and suspension that has been dropped by 30mm over standard. A body kit and illuminated side bars complete the look externally, while the cab trim includes leather and suede upholstery with a specification above the Highline trim.
VW will also offer a Black Edition of the Sportline model, with black alloy wheels, matt black side bars, Eiback coilover suspension and a 90% window tint on Kombi versions. Prices for the Sportline will start at £42,940 before VAT and OTR costs, with the Black Edition models starting at £45,140.
