If you love the VW Transporter for its great style and reliable quality, but you feel that its look isn’t quite unique enough for you, consider a WASP upgrade for your T6.1. Exclusive to us here at Swiss Vans in South Wales, the WASP upgrade can be applied to the Volkswagen Transporter Highline Kombi or Panel Van of your choice for an additional fee. (It won’t work on the Startline due to the bumper configuration, as WASP requires colour-coded bumpers.)
You can choose from VW’s excellent 110hp, 150hp, or 204hp 2.0-litre turbodiesel engines. Each is more than up to the job, but the 150hp and 204hp models are a little more dynamic: useful to bear in mind if you need a lot of power. The WASP kit is also available with either a manual transmission or VW’s 7-speed automatic DSG gearbox; it’s up to you whether or not you want to exercise your clutch foot. And while the Transporter is fitted with FWD (front-wheel drive) as standard, you can upgrade to VW’s 4Motion AWD (all-wheel drive) system for increased traction, safety, and stability in challenging weather or over difficult terrain.
So, what exactly is a WASP Transporter T6.1 from Swiss Vans? You can choose from the following, fantastic options:
- Choose your mechanical configuration: engine, gearbox, drivetrain
- Choose your van’s colour (a very important step, this!)
- Choose from a selection of three, super-stylish WASP splitters
- Choose your 18” alloy wheels from our great range. And if you’d prefer 20” alloys, those are available too at a slightly higher cost.
- Think about your other extras: the WASP package can be upgraded with lowered suspension, a gloss-black painted grill, a leather interior, carpeting, etc. It’s your van to make how you want it!
The most obvious benefit to a VW Transporter WASP upgrade is the spiffing new style it’ll bring to your Transporter; these vans definitely get noticed and admired. But it’s also worth mentioning that our WASP vans tend to keep their value much better than their non-WASP counterparts. We consistently see our customers selling their WASPs at the end of their lease periods for considerably more than their final balloon payments, and of course, when this happens, they get to keep the difference!
Buying a new van is a big deal, so give us a call at Swiss Vans, and we’ll talk you through the options and potential. If you like the idea of a VW Transporter and are looking for a bit more flair, our WASP package might be just the thing. (And of course, if you love the WASP look but prefer a Ford Transit Custom or Mercedes Vito, we’ve got you covered there too!)
