“Drive away in the top of the range Transporter from Volkswagen – the Sportline. Providing the T6.1 with a stylish look and a powerful drive, the VW Transporter Sportline is a vehicle which is built to impress.
You can get the Sportline in both panel van and Kombi variants, depending on what you’ll be carrying. If it’s cargo, the panel van allows for space of either 5.8m3 or 6.7m3 while the Kombi can hold up to 6 passengers.
Available only as an automatic, the 7 speed DSG allows for a drive free of changing gears. With the VW Transporter Sportline coming only with a 204PS engine, it can reach car-like speeds of 126mph.
Should you want the more simplistic and affordable version of the Transporter panel van or VW Transporter T6.1 Kombi we do both.”

Our affordable alternative to the Sportline; we upgrade a Highline spec Transporter with our WASP kit. Take a look at our VW Transporter Vans For Sale. A cheaper alternative is the Ford Transit Custom Sport or the Renault Trafic Sport The VW Transporter Sportline wasn’t a fantastic seller in the T6. Perhaps because so many offered similar conversions and the price just grew too great. You can of course go the other way with a Swamper style VW Transporter WASP
Suggested Model Range at Swiss Vans Increasing in price.
Swiss WASP with WASP 1 Splitter
Swiss Sportline ABT splitter
Swiss ABT full or partial kit
A new WASP 2 and WASP 3 Splitter are due out in April and its likely the WASP 2 Splitter will replace the ABT splitter on the Sportline model.
Currently there is no T6.1 Sportline but we have a choice of no less than 4 front splitters. We can help by customising your new 110, 150 or 199 PS Diesel Engine. The latter comes in DSG only of course. This way you can have either a Kombi or a panel van too.
At Swiss none of our vans are ready made. Instead you get some choice as to what your van will look like. Nothing sets off a van more than having a front splitter. All of these front splitters are sold ready fitted. You can mix and match
VW Transporter WASP 1 in stock March 2020 Supplies are likely to be limited. Can be black or painted. Painted cost typically £6-7 a month but less unpainted in black. When out of supply it makes sense to deliver the new van and for the customer to fit locally afterwards. Pictures soon on an actual van. Made from PP plastic.
VW Transporter Genuine ABT. In stock end of March 2020. Limited numbers. Typical cost £30 a month fitted so its a little on the expensive side. Stock fluctuates on ABT quite a lot. PP Plastic
VW Transporter WASP 2 due April 2020. Its more similar to the ABT splitter and features a unique design that lends itself to painting two tone. This we think will be the best seller as it will allow buyers to contrast with the new leather design service. Its about £10 a month or £12 if painted in two colours. Leather is about £30 a month even in two tone. This is our suggested splitter for best value. Fibreglass.
VW Transporter WASP 3 Due April 2020. Fibreglass.
Swiss Suggested Sportline Spec WASP pack Plus ABT front splitter Plus basic 5 seater leather. Choose from 110, 150 or 110 PS depending on your budget. Its not like the roads are clear and you can put your foot down any more.
Side bars round or Sportline Triangular ones. We tend to fit Vanstyle sidebars. The VW sidebars do last a lot longer but quite expensive. Mudflaps will reduce chips and corrosion.

Based on 5 seater basic robust leathers from £1500 Its less obviously for a two or three seater van.
Upgrade to a fine Nappa typically £500. These leathers smell like you can only imagine and are soft to the touch.
£1500 is for basic leather. If there is more work such as Hex stich or Bently, something more complicated or contrast expect to pay about another £500 on top

Van Leather Ordering Questions That We Might Ask
Obviously the colour of the leather ! There are about 30 leather colours approx. Its great to be different but if you order a ‘Katie Price” its going to be worth less not more in 3 years !
The material. There is standard Robust Leather, Nappa Leather, Mock Suede The robust is the most popular as it resists stains and scratching more. Its like your sofa at home. But you cant beat the feel and smell of Nappa
The stich pattern. Cross, Bently, Oval, list is endless. Ask your account manager for a link to build your leather.

VW Transporter Models Startline The VW Transporter Startline is the entry model but even so the standard stereo features App Connect to integrate with busy modern life. Like all panel vans there are three front seats as standard but it can get a little cramped on long journeys. Cruise control is a standard feature as are power electric mirrors which are heated for frosty mornings. VW do not reduce safety equipment on even base model vans. Its against their principles. A full steel bulkhead is standard and you will be pleased to hear that the headlights are much improved on the last model. The steering has also changed on the T6.1, its much lighter thanks to newerr servotronic steering. Its easily recognised by its black ABS bumpers. There is an upgrade named the “Business Pack” see below
Crosswind assist standard
Front assist with emergency city breaking
Tyre pressure monitor system
Highline The main reason people buy a Highline is toget colour coded bumpers and airconditioning. VW Have done away with the Trendline model
