Based on the Volkswagen Group’s T platform, the Volkswagen Transporter is a very popular series of vans, which has now been in production and broad circulation for over 60 years. Another claim to fame for the Volkswagen Transporter is that it has been given the title of the world’s most successful and popular van ever, with over 12 million units sold worldwide. In other words, if you’re looking for a van – regardless of type (vans, minivans, minibuses, pick-ups, campervans etc.) – then look no further than the Volkswagen Transporter. The Transporter T5 is the most recent iteration of the T platform, and was given its latest facelift in 2009.
