Volkswagen Commercial vehicles introduced a facelifted version for the sixth generation of the Multivan in 2019, adding some visual and technical upgrades to the popular MPV. Armrest Fridge V250
Even though the company was focused on creating dependable commercial vehicles, it didn't forget to build passenger versions. In addition, these didn't have to look like LCVs with seats installed aftermarket and cut-away windows on the side panels. The result was that the facelifted version of the T6, named T6.1, looked more like an MPV without windows when sold as an LCV.
At the front, Volkswagen created a new front grille that spanned between the headlights with a sharp design and chromed details. The headlamps were also changed and sported LED daytime running lights inside them, making the vehicle look like a VIP shuttle bus. As an option, Volkswagen offered them with full LED lights. From its side, the car didn't get essential changes, but a two-tone color scheme was on the options list.
Inside, like any other Multivan, the T6.1 featured a vast amount of space for seven passengers, even in the short wheelbase version. There were two seats at the front, two in the middle row, and three at the back, on a sliding and folding bench. Ingress and egress to the vehicle were easy, thanks to the front doors and the rear sliding doors on both sides. The two captain seats from the second row could've been rotated 180 degrees so the passengers could sit face-to-face with those seated on the bench.
Under the hood, Volkswagen installed a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel engine paired with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic. Power went to the front or all corners of the car, depending on the options.
