The Volkswagen Transporter T6 is the sixth generation of the Volkswagen Transporter vans. It is the successor to the T5 Transporter.[1]

Still based on the T5's 7H / 7J platform, the T6 came with a wide range of revisions and updates, including a completely new dashboard layout (in two versions, standard and 'comfort'). The front end ahead of the windscreen was all new along with cosmetic revisions to the tailgate / rear doors and rear lights.

At launch, the engine range closely matched the previous generation T5 2010 - 2016, but these were soon updated to newer, cleaner engines including new 110 kW (150 PS) TDi and 150 kW (204 PS) BiTDi diesels. All engines became Euro6 emissions compliant.

Towards the end of 2017, a new (to the Transporter) 2.0 TFSi engine became available, mirroring the motor industry's gradual move away from diesel engines.

5 and 6 speed manual gearboxes from the previous generation were carried over, as was the 7 speed DSG gearbox.

4motion four wheel drive continued to be an option, becoming standard fitment with the 150 kW (204 PS) BiTDi engine as of 2018.

New options for the T6 included LED headlights, LED rear lights and a range of driver assistance and multimedia options.

Transporter T6.1

Volkswagen unveiled the updated T6.1 version of the T6 at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2019. Essentialy a mid-cycle refresh, the main updates were electric power steering, which allows for the implementation of more driver assist functions compared to the T6. There were also minor styling updates in the form of a deeper front grille section. The T6.1 also has a new dashboard incorporating updated infotainment systems similar to those used in VW's passenger car range, and the ability to specify the "Virtual Cockpit" fully digital instrument cluster first seen on the Golf and Passat.

Transporter T6 Campervans

As with previous generations of the Transporter, the T6 is a popular van to be converted into campervans.[2] T6 conversions commonly include a pop top roof to create extra headroom. The conversion can also include a bed platform, hob, sink and grill installation, along with additional storage. Volkswagen also offers a factory made campervan called the California.
