The Difference Between The VW T5 And T6 Transporter

Since the release of the T6 transporter there has been a lot of conversation in regards to the T5 VS T6. In this blog post we’ll discuss the differences, as well as compare images of the new features on the two transporters

After much hype about the launch of the new VW T6 transporter it seems that Volkswagen toned down the proposed designs and gave us something more akin to a T5 GP facelift (or a T5 facelift-facelift) instead of a brand new model.

Whilst there have been changes to the technology within the T6 transporter, including new engines with improved efficiency and emergency braking systems, the cosmetic changes are very slight.

Hopefully this post will give you a visual idea of all the changes that Volkswagen have made, which will help you to decide on a winner between the T5 vs T6 transporter.

History of the VW Campervan

The Bumpers

The new T6 bumper is reminiscent of the T5 sportline with black vents and LED foglights.

Side Repeater/Far Indicators

Wing mirrors remain much the same but indicator side repeaters are shifted to the crease line and give a streamlined look.
