Looks like a heavy make over of the T5 to me. Updated drive trains, nose job, nip and tuck.

It's bizarre that the company that pioneered the minivan is so inept at doing one.

Just because it's an update doesn't mean it is not a good product. With the new engines this is still one of the best vans you can get in Europe. Maybe not the prettiest, but that's not the main selling point in this segment.

Looks like the T6 facelift has been spied, even though they're trying to tell us it's a T7. The new grille is a dead giveaway.

i actually think it is probably the prettiest one too. Especially the upper spec models look hot which is not something i would normally say for a commercial van.

Pretty sur ethat is a facelift, and I'm not sure the Arteon inspired grille is a good choice on a MPV/van; It doesn't work with the rest of the body, and is simply too big. Hopefully, no Toyota designer sees this massive grille as a "challenge accepted"....

That's a lot of ugly black plastic.

This should look less ghastly when the bumper is body coloured but I agree, the large grill doesn't work here that well. I hope VW doesn't facelift the crafter with a super large grill as well

It's a work vehicle. The base models have always had cheap black bumpers so they're cheap and easy to replace. It'll be interesting to see what it looks like with a coloured bumper, particularly the Multivan with the chrome grille.
