Hero hauler loses ugly image POPULAR PEOPLE-MOVER: VW's T5 2010 Transporter range is winning praise for both its fuel efficiency and design excellence. WITH even more re- finement, comfort, fuel efficiency and safety, VW's new T5 Transporter is proof positive that commercial vans and their people- mover derivatives are no longer the ugly ducklings of the auto- motive world. The T5 has been on the local market since 2003 and has always been a cut above the average commercial carrier, but after a thorough makeover it's even bet- ter. VW has given its hero hauler new looks, new engines, a new seven-speed auto transmission and new safety with better brakes, more airbags, and ESP electronic stability programming standard across all models. Despite the plethora of changes VW has made to the Transporter the fundamentals that made it an efficient workhorse, whether transporting people or payload, were already on the money and remain unchanged. The van range still boasts the same choice of short and long wheelbases, the same standard, medium and high roof height options, still delivers up to 9.3 cubic metres of load space, and will now carry more payload. Depending on the model the new T5 will haul up to 1.3 tonnes of payload, an increase of up to 19 per cent. If the working end of the T5 is unchanged the operator end has come in for an extensive ma- keover, starting with the front sheetmetal. The updated T5 is all new from the A pillar forward, with a new bonnet, new headlamps, new gril- les and bumpers, and it looks new. Gone is the hard-core commer- cial look of the old model, in its place is a much prettier face that should make it look more at home in less industrial settings. But the changes are much more than skin deep and none go deeper than those under the new bonnet where new common-rail 2.0-litre four- cylinder turbo-diesel engines replace the old 1.9 and 2.5-litre five- cylinder turbo-diesels. All match or better the engines they replace for power and torque, and all deliver significant fuel consumption gains. Three power ratings 75 kW, 103kW and 132kW are offered in the Transporter commercial models. The two lower rating engines have a single turbocharger and for the first time boast common-rail injection and deliver the same power as the engines they replace, but boast increased torque over a broader speed range for better driveability. Van drivers are sure to find the 103kW engine a delight with its smooth driveability and powerful punch. At the top-end of the engine range is the cracking 132kW twin- turbo diesel engine, which uses a combination of high and low pres- sure turbochargers to deliver im- pressive zip across a broad speed spectrum. Buyers of the long wheelbase Caravelle nine-seater commercial people-mover get the 103kW en- gine, while those opting for the Multivan high-end people-mover have the choice of the 103kW and 132kW engines. While all engines outpace the engines they replace they also stretch the gap between fuel stops. All offer fuel consumption sav- ings of between seven and 16 per cent. New to the T5 is an optional seven-speed auto DSG gearbox; it's so new that the T5 is the first VW model to receive it. Like the familiar six-speed DSG box it replaces the new seven- speeder is a super smooth operator with the same seamless shifting. Now with an extra ratio the driveability is even smoother. VWs 4Motion system has been updated and remains an option for those who require an all-wheel drive. Larger front disc brakes add to the T5s braking power, but when the 132kW engine is optioned there are even bigger front discs as well as twin-piston front callipers. All models in the T5 range get standard electronic stability pro- gramming with rollover protec- tion, an essential item for a com- mercial vehicle carrying a load. Drivers will also appreciate the cornering headlamps that light the way when turning at low speed; they will like the new radar system that detects vehicles in the driver's blind spot when changing lanes, the rear view camera, the rain- sensing wipers, and the ''coming home'' lights that stay on for a time after the engine is turned off. The pricing for the Transporter starts from $36,490, the nine-seater Caravelle people-mover is tagged at $49,990, and the Multivan tops the range ranging from $49,990 to $77,990.
