Find out below the seamless way the New Transporter T6.1 intergrates new technology and connectivity to create a whole new driving experience.
Adaptive Cruise ControlAdaptive Cruise Control provides relaxed, safe and stress-free driving and improved safety for other road users. It measures the distance to the vehicle in front and adjusts your speed accordingly. If the vehicle in front accelerates, the T6.1 automatically follows at the set distance up to the previously selected speed. With T6.1, this system can bring the vehicle to a complete standstill and then pull away when the vehicle in front has moved (DSG only).
This optional extra aids positioning into parking spaces. When reverse gear is engaged, the vehicle automatically assumes control of the steering. All the driver has to do is operate the clutch, accelerator and brake.
The Transporter 6.1 features Trailer Assist, which lets the driver manoeuvre the vehicle and its trailer easily during parallel and reverse parking, using the wing mirror switch and rear-view camera.
Included with Park Assist, Side Protection monitors the vehicle's sides and alerts you using visual and audible warnings if you're getting too close to objects such as other vehicles, pillars, walls or pedestrians. Side Protection uses 12 ultrasound sensors (6 front and 6 rear) to detect objects and create a field of vision around the vehicle.
Available as an option, Lane Assist countersteers the vehicle if the driver unintentionally drifts from a lane. The system also emits audible and visual warnings via the multi-function display to alert the driver of danger.

To help you avoid congestion, this system even offers you three routes – fast, short and eco-friendly – using live traffic updates.
