2.0 l Common rail engines. The TDI engines are particularly efficient thanks to a combination of a small displacement, turbocharging and direct injection. Accurate injection processes under high pressure ensure that fuel is burned evenly, resulting in high performance at low fuel consumption. The efficiency of these engines is further supported by the low maintenance costs. A 2.0 l TDI engine in four different output levels as well as a 2.0 l BiTDI with 132 kW¹ are available for the Transporter.
Direct fuel injection and turbocharging make the 2.0 l TSI engines (110 kW¹/ 150 kW²) thriftier and more powerful than other petrol engines. The 150 kW engine is available with a manual gearbox or DSG – which can be combined with 4MOTION all-wheel drive upon request.
The engine torque is distributed as required between the front and rear axle. The electronic differential lock assures even traction – for example, when driving off and accelerating hard, whereby more power is transferred to the wheels having better contact with the road. This ensures improved safety on almost all road surfaces.
Volkswagen offers various running gear options for special use – for example, the extremely robust heavy-duty running gear for slippery, loose surfaces as often found at building sites.
The modern dual clutch gearbox is capable of changing gears with no interruption in power flow. When the gearbox is in manual mode, the instrument panel gives the driver a gear recommendation for a particularly fuel-efficient driving style. In conjunction with BlueMotion Technology and the multifunction display, the DSG includes a freewheel function: when the driver takes his or her foot off the accelerator, the engine is temporarily disengaged to save fuel.
