Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front passenger head and leg room is generous in the outside two seats of the Volkswagen Transporter T6.1. If you have the front middle bench seat fitted, the middle passenger will have less space to stretch into.

There are loads of useful storage spaces dotted around. These include recesses in the top of the dashboard, large door bins and a roomy glovebox. Above that, you’ll find a narrow, rubberised shelf that’s ideal for keys or mobile phones. You also have several cup holders, including two at the base of the windscreen pillars. The Kombi model adds a rear bench that folds up out of the way to minimise the impact on load space.
