The new generation of engines offers impressively low fuel consumption with every unit – and all without dampening driving pleasure. As a result, there is a lower average consumption of 5.5 l/100 km¹/² with average CO₂ emissions of 145 g/km¹/².The 2.0 l TDI engine with 150 kW³ is especially powerful, yet also economical. The proven Euro 5 engines round out the product range, along with additional engine variants which will be introduced at a later date.
The optional 4MOTION¹ all-wheel drive is now equipped with the latest gearbox generation Haldex clutch. Advantages include reduced weight, and further enhancement of vehicle handling and dynamics.
The new Transporter Chassis is the only vehicle of its class also available with the optional 4MOTION all-wheel drive and 7-speed dual clutch gearbox DSG¹/².
The mechanical differential lock is optionally available for the rear axle together with the optional 4MOTION all-wheel drive¹. This makes starting up in adverse, off-road conditions much easier.
The new Transporter Chassis sets standards in sustainable mobility. The new generation of TDI engines compliant with the Euro 6 emission standard, as well as the tried-and-tested Euro 5 engines are all equipped with BlueMotion Technology as standard.
Optionally, the CO₂ emission can be further reduced, in addition to the standard BlueMotion Technology measures, by lowering the suspension, among other measures¹.
The optional 7-speed dual clutch gearbox DSG permits fully automatic, almost imperceptible gear changing with no interruption in power flow, which results in significantly increased driving comfort. You can choose between normal and sport mode.
This recharges the vehicle battery during overrun and braking phases, thereby relieving strain on the engine, and reducing fuel consumption.
After shifting into neutral and releasing the clutch (Only applies for manual transmission), the engine is switched off automatically, e. g. at red traffic lights. To start the engine again, it is enough to step on the clutch.
The new Transporter makes contact with the road via roll resistance-optimised tyres. The low rolling resistance reduces fuel consumption, and with it, CO₂ emission.
