Volkswagen Transporter 2016

The 2016 Volkswagen Transporter range of configurations is currently priced from $24,000. Our most recent review of the 2016 Volkswagen Transporter resulted in a score of 8 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Contributing Journalist Mark Oastler had this to say at the time: The T6 model we tested starts at $44,690. If you want the genuine VW aluminium tray as fitted to ours ($2490) that increases to $47,180 plus on-roads. By comparison, 4x2 single cab/cab-chassis variants of popular LCVs like HiLux, Ranger, Navara, Triton etc are also rated to carry one tonne-plus payloads but have drive-away-with-tray pricing from around $31,000.

This is what Mark Oastler liked most about this particular version of the Volkswagen Transporter: Colossal tray., Plenty of cabin space and seating for three., Four-coil suspension, four wheel discs and good ride quality.

The 2016 Volkswagen Transporter carries a braked towing capacity of up to 2000 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

  • No help from VW

    Most manufacturers have what they call "Filled for Life" transmissions, but they can still be serviced. Like you we believe VW should be more transparent when it comes to problems instead of adopting a head-in-the-sand approach, as they appear to do when confronted with a problem.

    The Transporter can be converted economically and successfully with the traditional mixer technology, which is cheaper than the current injection technology and that equates to a reduced breakeven mileage. Before you convert, however, you should make sure the vehicle is in good working order and you need to understand how long you will need to own and drive the vehicle to get your money back.
