Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
Most of the Volkswagen Transporter T6.1 range is priced slightly above the equivalent Ford Transit Custom, but the differences aren’t vast and the Transporter tends to hold its value comparatively well over three years. Top-spec Transporters are become very pricey, though, and are among the most expensive medium-sized vans on the market.
Our pick of the engines, the 2.0 TDI 150, officially averages up to 40mpg. From our experience, you should see around 35-40mpg, depending on where and how you drive.
