Who said the van life is boring? This is the Volkswagen Transporter T6.1 Sportline, not your average van.
GTI looks for Transporter and Kombi
Fans of the brand will notice the red trim spanning the width of the grille which is reminiscent of the Volkswagen Golf GTI and it’s complemented with a body kit that beefs up the front fascia appreciably. Note the roof spoiler at the rear. This souped-up van rides on large 18-inch gloss black alloy wheels and Volkswagen has also dropped the suspension by as much as 30mm to give the van that low-rider look.
As for the interior, features such as Nappa honeycomb leather seats with suede trim, heated front seats, digital cockpit, Discover Media infotainment system and an upgraded sound system are also included. Additional nice-to-haves include front and rear parking sensors with a rearview camera and adaptive cruise control.
The 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine, however, remains untouched, with outputs of 150 kW and 450 Nm and comes mated with a 7-speed DSG.
Volkswagen is offering the Sportline treatment for both the Kombi and Transporter variants but these can be further enhanced with the Black Edition which adds features such black (dark) tinted windows, matt black sidebars, unique wheels, Eibach coilover suspension and obligatory ‘Black Edition’ decals.
