If you are planning to invest in a new vehicle then you will already have started to think about what kind of car will suit your needs and what kind of features you are looking for. It can be so easy to pick up a reliable car at a good price from a second-hand dealer, but what if you are searching for something with a bit of an edge?
Volkswagen has proven time and time again that they are a brand that you can trust, developing many high-quality models such as the Golf and Tiguan and of course, the famous Beetle that has been in production since 1938.
However, one of their most iconic models and one which you may not have considered is the Transporter Sportline. It provides an unparalleled driving experience and is incredibly versatile and stylish.
Models and Specs
Volkswagen have carefully crafted this line of car with a huge number of different models that will surely have you asking the question – “are these guys the king of the Transporter Sportline?“
We are going to take a look at three of German manufacturer’s most popular models; the Amarok Dark Label, Transporter Shuttle and the Caddy Life and discuss what exactly makes them so special.
Amarok Dark Label
This is a truly impressive car that combines a bold and striking style with a powerful and dynamic performance. Prices for this model start in the region of £34,000 but this price tag offers you the very best that Volkswagen has to offer.
The design is eye-catching and the exterior is sleek and strong with contrasting black and silver culminating in a very on-trend look that is enhanced by the Amarok’s matte door handles and anthracite alloys. The front grill is lacquered and the vehicle is finished to perfection with luxury carbon steel paint.
The interior boasts comfortable and decadent Vienna Leather or perhaps you will opt for the Alcantara Suede, either way, you will be driving in luxury. Everything in this car has a personal touch – from the embroidered mats on the floor to the headlining of the seats, which also come with flexible lumbar support.
The model has a V6 3.0-litre engine and is perfect for going off-road with its all-wheel drive and automatic post-collision advanced braking system. It is incredibly economical and contains fuel-saving technologies helping you to cut down and costs.
The Amarok Dark Label is one of the most visually stunning of the brand’s models and one to give serious thought to if you are looking to merge both performance and character.
This larger Volkswagen model is the perfect choice for those with large families or for use as a business vehicle and can transport a maximum of nine passengers, in this highly comfortable and spacious shuttle.
The Transporter has been designed to be both impressive and understated combing both exceptionally well, providing a practical, smart and sophisticated solution to the issue to all of your driving needs.
The car comes with parking assist sensors and a remote key that controls the central locking. The heating and air conditioning system has been carefully crafted to allow for maximum comfort, providing cool or hot air in seconds exactly where you need it.
Driver assist and safety systems incorporate some highly advanced technology that will become activated in situations it detects as being critical and will take measures to prevent any accidents or collisions.
The engine capabilities vary depending on the model you choose but all are 2.0 litre TDI and all meet the Euro 6 emissions standard with their selective catalytic reduction and exhaust gas recirculation making this line of the manufacturer’s models environmentally friendly and efficient.
Pricing for this bold seven-seater start from around £21,000 and the real theme of this car is balance. Volkswagen has developed a car that merges safety, luxury and quality equally as well as providing a lot of interior room.
This model is perfect for transporting large and heavy items and performs well under these pressures. It is functional and practical and can be used primarily as a family transporter or as a business vehicle.
As with other models in the Transporter Sportline range, it comes with Driver assistance, meets the Euro 6 emissions standard and has an improved fuel economy, producing less CO2 while balancing power and torque.
Safety systems have been given top priority with ABS and EBD fitted as standard and an abundance of interior features such as ergonomic seating as dashboard controls further add to the accessibility of this vehicle.
