Volkswagen introduces Transporter Sportline

Written By Alison Bell Published On: May 20 2011

Volkswagen has added to its Transporter range with its new Sportline models, available to order now.

The new Sportline specification is available on panel van and kombi models, in both short and long wheelbases.

All models are fitted with the 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.

In terms of styling, at the front, there's a gloss black grille with chrome detailing, framed by revised headlights. Below this, the redesigned colour-coded bumper incorporates front fog lights which sit either side of the lower grille element.

There's also polished stainless steel side bars and 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. There's a choice of paint finishes: Reflex Silver metallic, Deep Black pearlescent or, the optional, Candy White with a contrasting gloss black roof.

Inside, 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).

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.
