Volkswagen Transporter 2018

The 2018 Volkswagen Transporter range of configurations is currently priced from $34,780. Our most recent review of the 2018 Volkswagen Transporter resulted in a score of 7 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Editor - Adventure Marcus Craft had this to say at the time: Sure, at $104,110 the Trakkadu 400 is a wedge of cash and I’m sure there are people who would argue a strong case that rather than buy this, it’d be better to get a second-hand 4WD and a camper-trailer or caravan and then still have money left over to pay for camping gear and national parks fees.
