VW Transporter Sportline brings sporty style and extra kit to van land

Volkswagen adds Sportline trim to latest T6 Transporter kombi, priced from £36,295 with BiTDI diesel

Vans aren't usually known for their sporty looks but that hasn't stopped Volkswagen adding a hint of menace to the T6 Transporter with a new Sportline trim. It receives upgraded styling and extra equipment, and is on sale now from £36,295.

The Transporter's new Sportline trim level is only available on the T32 kombi passenger van, but it's set to arrive on more variants later this year. Exterior upgrades include 18-inch bi-colour alloy wheels, deep front and rear spoilers, lowered suspension, styling bars with puddle lights and carbon-fibre mirror caps.

Inside, you'll find new embossed red and black leather upholstery and Sportline floormats. Equipment is boosted as the Discover Media touchscreen navigation system is thrown in as standard, while air-con, a heated windscreen, front parking sensors, LED head and tail-lights and 'App Connect' smartphone connectivity. 

The Transporter Sportline will be first available with the 177bhp 2.0-litre BiTDI diesel engine mated to a seven-speed DSG gearbox. Later this year more wheelbase and transmission options will be available, plus a panel van version, for delivery in early 2017.
