The Volkswagen Transporter Kombi is a fantastic piece of machinery that provides ample space for up to six people, as well as a generous load compartment. In addition to its aesthetic exterior, its durable interior is expertly designed for heavy daily use.

Why is the Volkswagen Transporter Kombi the perfect van lease for your business? Is it the practicality, comfort and versatility of the Volkswagen Transporter? Let’s find out:


How Functional is the Volkswagen Transporter Kombi?

There are a range of sizes that are available in the Volkswagen Transporter Kombi, which include two wheelbases, and three different roof heights; low roof, medium roof, and a high roof.

The twin sliding doors provide unrivalled access for passengers. Access to the rear hatch door makes loading and unloading an easy process. With a passenger capacity of six, this model also comes with an impressive load compartment capable of holding 9.3 m³.

The separation of the seating and the load area is possible with the addition of an optional rear bulkhead. The folding bench seats in the rear of the vehicle provide extra load space when travelling with fewer passengers. 

The Load Compartment
The aforementioned load capacity of 9.3 m³ allows this model to adapt easily to your needs. In terms of interior characteristics, the rubber floor covering (pictured below) is perfect for almost all, due to its durability and easy-wash features.




The hardboard side panel trim also comes as standard in all Volkswagen Transporter Kombi models. The hardboard panels are fitted in the rear load compartment in order to protect the interior of the vehicle. 



The Drivers Cab
The Transporter Kombi is an exceptionally comfortable, spacious and easy ride. Whether you are travelling for business or leisure, it’s intelligent interior arrangement and high-quality finish provides a driving environment that borders on luxury. Customisable adjustment options allow you to choose your ideal seating position, as well as armrests for the driver, creating the comfort of a ‘lazy-boy’ chair to enhance your driving experience.





Storage is important when you have more than the standard two or three passengers, and this is of the utmost importance to Volkswagen. From the lockable glove box, to the cup holders, even a shelf above the windscreen for sunglasses; there is no shortage of space in the Volkswagen Transporter Kombi.  

Rear Door and Loading
The Kombi has a range of rear doors, which include attributes such as the electric tailgate, versatile rear wing doors, and rear view window, which allows for excess visibility. The 250 degree opening angle hinges, along with the tailgates vast opening height makes any vehicle in the Transport Kombi range ideal for loading and unloading possessions.

As mentioned, the tail end can be fitted with glass windows, or metal cladding, the latter being optimal for security and privacy; this is ideal for anyone with valuable goods.


A Flexible Interior
With versatile seating for six people, the Kombi is perfect for cargo and crew alike. The single or double front passenger seat, and removable rear seating are all fitted with three-point seatbelt and height-adjustable head-restraints for the maximum safety and comfort of those onboard.

Access to the rear passenger area is through the near sided glazed sliding door, which is in addition to the aforementioned tailgate. The flexible interior can be transformed in a matter of seconds from a comfortable six-seater passenger vehicle to a spacious delivery van.


The Volkswagen Kombi Visibility Experience
Arguably the greatest asset of the VW Transporter Kombi is the visibility you obtain while driving. With a panoramic windscreen and large windows located around the entirety of the vehicle, it is a much more open driving experience than any other van on the market.
