Volkswagen Transporter 2021

The 2021 Volkswagen Transporter range of configurations is currently priced from $38,990. Our most recent review of the 2021 Volkswagen Transporter resulted in a score of 7.9 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Managing Editor - Head of Video Matt Campbell had this to say at the time: There are more affordable vans out there to purchase and own. But not many offer the level of personalisation and quality, not to mention ease-of-use and drivability as the VW T6.1 Transporter range.

This is what Matt Campbell liked most about this particular version of the Volkswagen Transporter: Amazing personalisation on offer, Grunty high grade diesel engines , Cabin redesign is pretty nice

The Volkswagen Transporter Commercial competes with similar models like the Ford Ranger, Toyota HiLux and Volkswagen Crafter in the Under $60k category category.

The 2021 Volkswagen Transporter carries a braked towing capacity of up to 2500 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.
