Johannesburg - Volkswagen South Africa has added a new Trendline Plus model to its T6 Kombi range, effectively bridging the gap between the cheaper and more expensive derivatives in the range.
Unlike the regular 2.0 TDI Trendline models, which come with a 75kW turbodiesel engine in manual form and a 103kW in DSG guise, the Trendline Plus is fitted with VW’s BiTDI twin-turbo-diesel, which was previously only available in the range-topping Comfortline.
The 2.0 BiTDi produces 132kW and 400Nm, and is mated to VW's seven-speed DSG dual-clutch gearbox.
The Trendline Plus costs R76 000 less than the Comfortline and while it does lose some of its standard features, it is still relatively well equipped.
Over and above the features that you get in the Trendline, the Trendine Plus comes with a Composition Media six-speaker touchscreen audio system with AppConnect and reverse camera, multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, 17-inch ‘Devonport’ alloy wheels and LED headlights. You will however have to pay extra for side and curtain airbags, which is a strange omission at this price point.
