A new generation T6 Transporter is coming from Volkswagen. It has been revealed and it became the latest addition to this family that made sales of over 12 million pieces since it was introduced in 1950. Volkswagen tried to make a van that will be similar to previous ones but with new tech and materials. They left the same “boxy” and square look but they modernized it a little bit. It has rectangular big headlights and a three line grille design. This is the sixth generation of this Transporter and it has been enriched with new exterior and interior styling and with some new features added. This vehicle is one of the most recognizable models and it is almost iconic. To remind you: VW Transporter was a symbol of the hippie movement in the early seventies of the 20th century. It symbolized the freedom of movement and life of a new generation. Through generations they have changed and this sixth gen is going to be the best one yet.
