We know what you put in, so we’re helping you get the most out of your business with the Transporter Cab Chassis. Designed to be customised, it’s the perfect starting point to create a vehicle just right for the job. Plus, with a bigger factory tray and higher payload than 1 tonne utes, as well as a 3 seater single cab and 6 seater dual cab, the Transporter Cab is genuinely whatever you need it to be, and more.
The Transporter Cab Chassis comes in two variants differing in cab and features. Both are diesel and come in Volkswagen’s direct shift gearbox transmission.
The Transporter Cab Chassis is highly configurable. Fit it with trays and bodies of all sorts - whatever is required. Plus, with the optional appearance package, alloys, suspension upgrade, electrical interface and second battery, there are a multitude of ways you can set it up. And while there may be endless ways to personalise your Transporter, there’ll always be one constant: it’s going to look the part.
One of the best things about the Transporter Cab Chassis is that it holds a higher payload than any conventional 1t ute. And carrying options don’t end with cargo. The Single Cab comes standard with a two seater front bench seat, with the middle boasting a 3 point seat belt and headrest. The Dual Cab also offers a three seater passenger bench in the back. Both are comfy for long work days, as you’d expect.
The Transporter Cab Chassis is available with a dropside tray - direct from the factory. With a robust load surface, aluminum tray, rear step and retaining cables, it makes the Transporter perfect for any number of tough jobs.
(Factory Alloy tray optional available with Load Platform package).
The Transporter Cab boasts a 12.7cm TFT colour touchscreen display, Bluetooth connectivity, an MP3 and WMA CD drive, 4 speakers, an SD-card slot, an AUX-IN interface, USB input, and a dual tuner with Phase Diversity for optimal radio reception.
Access your smartphone’s screen, selected apps, maps, and music through App-Connect on your car’s touchscreen and Voice Control. You can do this thanks to three innovative technologies: Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™and MirrorLink® interfaces. (Only available with the optional Composition Media radio system or Discover Media Satellite Navigation).
With Voice Control you can control your phone, navigation, and audio with your voice - without taking your hands off the steering wheel.

Let’s be honest, a Transporter is more than just a run-around. It’s a workhorse, designed to put in long shifts. And the longer time spent on the road each day the more chance of an accident. That’s why it’s loaded with safety technology and driver aids - to get you home safe every day.
This potentially life-saving system continually evaluates steering movements and other independent signals, and if fatigue is detected, warns the driver with an alarm, and recommends the driver take a break on the Multi-Function display.
When the airbag sensors detect a collision, this state-of-the-art system applies the brakes to slow down the vehicle so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are illuminated and remain activated. The driver can take over at any time.
This intelligent feature allows you to make a hill start without the vehicle rolling back. If you’re on an incline greater than 5 per cent, the system will hold your car stationary for 1.5 seconds after the foot brake is released by temporarily locking the brake pressure.
Helps you stay in control of your vehicle by preventing under or over steering. If your vehicle starts to skid, the Electronic Stabilisation Programme will apply the brakes to individual wheels and adjust the engine’s power output to correct the problem.
The Transporter Cab has airbags for the driver and front passenger, as well as front side and head airbags. These are even available when the front bench seat is fitted, so if something does go wrong, you’ll be glad you’re in a Transporter.
When cornering, this valuable safety system responds to the load relief at the front wheel on the inside of a corner, which improves traction and reduces the tendency to understeer.
BlueMotion Technology lowers fuel consumption and reduces emissions. It comes from our ‘Think Blue.’ concept: to develop fuel-efficient vehicles that place less burden on the environment over their entire lifetime.
Part of BlueMotion technology, this money-saving feature automatically stops the engine when you come to a standstill, and starts again on take-off, helping you cut back on fuel consumption.
The engines in the Transporter provide impressive performance and improved fuel consumption. In addition, innovations like the dual clutch gearbox DSG, and Hill Start Assist make the new Transporter Cab Chassis the smoothest ride in its class.
The powerful Transporter Single Cab chassis comes with 103kW of power and 340Nm of torque.
Boasting a bi-Turbo with up to 132kW and 400Nm of torque, the Dual Cab with TDI400 delivers an impressive amount of grunt to carry around the troops and equipment.
