  If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Volkswagens commercial range just like their car range, is reassuringly familiar. I tested the latest T6 Transporter recently, driving the T28 Highline SWB EU5 2.0 TDI 150PS 6-speed Manual As a car driver who drives vans, I like a van that feels car like & is equipped […]
