1979 – 1992: Volkswagen Transporter T3
The T3 underwent a significant facelift and became wider, longer, and provided a lot more room for the driver and passengers. During this time, new water-cooled engines entered the market, alongside catalytic converters, turbochargers, and all-wheel drive systems which dramatically changed the game in terms of comfort, especially for the mod cons. By this time, the Transporter was sold in 180 different markets.
