Volkswagen Transporter - 21,526 registrations

The T6 Transporter is arguably Volkswagen’s best van. Easy to drive and packed with high levels of standard equipment, the T6 will carry three Euro pallets weighing up to 1331kg. It can also tow up to 2.5 tonnes, when hooked up to a braked trailer. Add in the Transporters excellent ride comfort and it’s easy to see why it won the Most Popular Van category at the Honest John Awards 2016.
