Transporter 6.1 wins Trade Van Driver Award

For six generations, globetrotters have travelled the world in it, businesses have relied on it and families have driven it every single day. And now, the new Volkswagen Transporter, the 6.1, has beaten off the competition to be named Traders’ Choice at the annual Trade Van Driver’s awards.


Trade Van Driver, the UK’s top van magazine for small business users, has recognised the T6.1 for its outstanding driveability, tried and tested reliability and strong residual values. 

The Trade Van Driver Awards aim to give recognition to the manufacturers and models which, in the opinion of the judges, offer the very best to retail van buyers. The awards are judged not only by an expert panel of journalists from the magazine but also by its readers who rely on light commercial vehicles to run their businesses. 

Trade Van Driver Magazine editor Matthew Eisenegger commented: “Since its original launch in the 1950s, this van has proved itself a legend in the market, filling the needs not only of trade van users but also the likes of surf dudes, camper van enthusiasts and cab drivers.

“Its ride and handling are superb, its reliability is legendary and to cap it all, when users come to sell a Transporter, they will be inundated by eager second buyers. As such, the Transporter must be THE traders’ choice.”

Earlier this year, the record-breaking Volkswagen Transporter celebrated its 70th birthday, giving it the world's longest production run for a commercial vehicle.

The latest iteration of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ Transporter, the Transporter 6.1, brings the popular icon into the digital age, showcasing a new dashboard and greater connectivity.

Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Carl zu Dohna, said: “We’re really proud of our Transporter, and especially the latest model, the T6.1 which is the most advanced version to date, with a new look, improved connectivity and benchmark cabin comfort.  Awards like this, from Trade Van Driver, show that we’re still customers’ first choice when it comes to a reliable and well-fitted commercial vehicle. Add in our Working With You promise and a dedicated Van Centre network, and it’s clear why traders choose Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.”

Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited are Appointed Representatives of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 571076). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of finance providers and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time.
