Latest engines. With extra low fuel consumption.

The engines in the new Transporter Chassis provide improved performance, along with extra low fuel consumption. In addition, innovations like 4MOTION all-wheel drive, dual clutch gearbox DSG, and Hill Start Assist make the new Transporter the most off-road-ready vehicle in its class.

The new TDI engines

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.

¹ Transporter, 2.0 l TDI engine with 62 kW, fuel consumption in l/100 km: urban from 7.3 to 6.5, extra-urban from 5.7 to 5.0, combined from 6.3 to 5.5. CO₂ emission in g/km: combined from 164 to 145. Efficiency classes: B to A (in Kombi).
² Transporter, 2.0 l TDI engine with 75 kW, fuel consumption in l/100 km: urban from 7.3 to 6.5, extra-urban from 5.7 to 5.0, combined from 6.3 to 5.5. CO₂ emission in g/km: combined from 164 to 145. Efficiency classes: B to A (in Kombi).
³ Transporter, 2.0 l TDI engine with 150 kW, fuel consumption in l/100 km: urban from 7.9 to 7.5, extra-urban from 6.1 to 5.5, combined from 6.8 to 6.2. CO₂ emission in g/km: combined from 177 to 162. Efficiency classes: C to B (in Kombi).

4MOTION all-wheel drive

The new generation 4MOTION all-wheel drive

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.

4MOTION all-wheel drive with dual clutch gearbox DSG

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.

Mechanical differential lock

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.

  • ¹ Will be introduced at a later date.
    ² Only available in conjunction with 110 kW TDI engine and 150 kW TDI engine.

BlueMotion Technology Package

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.

Package contents

BlueMotion Technology efficiency package

Optionally, the CO₂ emission can be further reduced, in addition to the standard BlueMotion Technology measures, by lowering the suspension, among other measures¹.

  • ¹ For the Transporter Delivery Van and Kombi in combination with TDI engines compliant with the Euro 6 emission standard, normal roof, short wheelbase, front wheel drive, along with 16-inch and 17-inch wheels.

Dual clutch gearbox DSG

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.

Regenerative braking

This recharges the vehicle battery during overrun and braking phases, thereby relieving strain on the engine, and reducing fuel consumption.

Start/stop system
Start/stop system

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.

Roll resistance-optimised tyres

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.
