New S and SE packs mean extra value for VW ?07 plate van buyers PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 06 March 2007

The new registration plate marks the launch of two new options packs for Transporter buyers, offering them extra equipment as well as extra value.

With the introduction of the S and SE packs, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is combining a number of popular options into two value-for-money packages. Available on Transporter panel vans, the S pack adds an alarm which alone would cost £115 (RRP excl VAT); full height bulkhead (£135); and an electric pack (£295) which comprises electric windows, heated and electrically adjustable wing mirrors and internal central locking control. To specify these options would cost £545, however the S pack is priced at just £460, giving customers a saving of over 15 per cent or £85.

The SE pack includes all the items in the S pack, and adds manual air conditioning (£600) and a driver’s comfort seat with armrest (£50) on top. The SE pack costs £1,000, offering a saving of over 16 per cent or £195. Both packs are available in combination with any colour, wheelbase, gross vehicle weight, roof height or engine.

Not only do the S and SE packs offer customers extra equipment and value at purchase, they also provide advantages at resale, with CAP Monitor predicting they will add a premium to the secondhand van of £150 for the S and £500 for the SE after three years. Prices for the standard Transporter panel van start at £13,465 for the T26 short wheelbase powered by a 1.9-litre 84 PS TDI PD engine.

A Transporter with the new SE options pack will be showcased at the Commercial Vehicle Show 2007 from 24 to 26 April at the NEC in Birmingham.
