VW Transporter gets
VOLKSWAGEN is set to add a new Sportline model to its best-selling Transporter T32 kombi range and the grade will be offered in Transporter panel vans from early next year.
The Sportline is based on the already generous specification of the kombi Highline model and combines sporty design features with a raft of additional equipment designed to give driver and passengers an even more comfortable and engaging ride.
The kombi Sportline rides on 18-inch bi-colour alloy wheels and comes with lowered suspension and deeper front and rear spoilers for a more dynamic look.
The exterior design also includes trapezoid styling bars with puddle lights and carbon fibre mirror caps.
Inside, the Sportline has an embossed leather trim, climatic air conditioning, heated windscreen and a touchscreen navigation system.
In addition, the first wave of kombi Sportline models will also feature front parking sensors, LED headlights and tail lights, USB input and App Connect - a system that allows owners to connect their smartphones to the infotainment system.
The first Transporter available in Sportline trim will be the T32 2.0 BiTDI 180bhp kombi model equipped with VWs seven-speed DSG gearbox and is priced from £36,295 excluding VAT.
