Iconic Transporter named van hero  

The Volkswagen Transporter has been named as Glass’s Used Van Hero for August, due to its toughness and reliability alongside strong specification and value.

Each month, Glass’s commercial vehicle editors hold a meeting to name the current Used Van Hero in the UK market – the model they believe offers outstanding value, quality and ability.

Andy Picton, senior commercial vehicle editor: ‘The Transporter is an iconic commercial vehicle for very good reasons. It is excellent to drive, superbly well-made and has strong support from its specialist dealer network.’ He added, ‘At this time of year, used Transporters had additional appeal because so many were used as the basis for camper van conversions.’
