Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is launching the Sportline 60, a new special edition model celebrating six decades of the Transporter in the United Kingdom. Sportline 60 – which replaces the current Sportline – could be availed in either short and long-wheelbase forms as a Kombi or panel van.

Sportline 60 is distinguished from the rest of the Transporter range through 18-inch five-spoke Anthracite alloy wheels, black steel side bars, gloss black door mirror covers and special decals.

Moving to its interior, one can find that the Sportline 60 come with standard equipment like an upgraded Kenwood sat-nav infotainment system – including smartphone mirroring functionality, DAB and Bluetooth connectivity -- front and rear parking sensors with camera; and new quilted and embossed leather upholstery that features a special Sportline 60 edition logo.

Also coming as standard are a front seat armrest; electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, electric windows, ABS, climate air conditioning, remote central locking and stereo with CD player.

Just like its predecessor, the new Sportline 60 is easily distinguishable on the road thanks to color-coded front bumper and lower spoiler combine with a chrome grille at the front, and a roof spoiler, a color-coded bumper and unique Sportline 60 badging at the rear.

Standard finishes include metallic Reflex Silver and Deep Black while coming as an option is Candy White with a Deep Black roof. The Sportline 60 is powered by Volkswagen’s 2.0-liter BiTDI engine that provides 180 PS of output and up to 400 Nm of torque.

Customers can select between a six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG transmission. The Sportline 60 can be availed at a starting price of £29,940, excluding VAT, for the manual transmission (short wheelbase), and hiking to £34,170, excluding VAT, for the DSG transmission (long wheelbase).
