Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles unveiled its new Transporter 6.1 at the construction machinery show Bauma 2019 in Munich.
The Transporter 6.1 is available as a panel van, a Kombi and as a single or double cab pick-up. Changes to the van include a switch from hydraulic to electro-mechanical power steering resulting in a new range of driver assistance systems including technologies such as Lane Assist, Park Assist, side protection, Rear Traffic Alert and Trailer Assist.
Another standard feature of the panel van and Kombi is the new Cross Wind Assist system. It stabilises the Transporter 6.1 if it gets caught by a strong gust of wind, for example on a bridge.
Also fitted as standard are a Post-Collision Braking System and Hill Start Assist. New features in the redesigned cab include a 230-volt electric socket by the driver’s seat and a lockable compartment under the double bench seat on the passenger side.
Added as new features on all versions are electric windows, central locking, electrically adjustable heated wing mirrors, new H7 headlights, bright, energy-efficient interior lights using energy-efficient LED technology and the Composition Audio radio system with Bluetooth hands-free function. The Transporter 6.1 is being launched with 2.0-litre turbo diesel engines that all fulfil the Euro-6d-TEMP emissions standard.
