As far as people movers go, the Volkswagen Caravelle is the Boeing A380 of passenger vans. There’s plenty of room, it carries loads of passengers and it is jam packed with features and nifty creature comforts.
Despite its van-like appearance from the outside, the Caravelle’s interior is well equipped and feels more rugged than industrious. Arm rests, tri-zone air conditioning, a great stereo and dual-sliding doors are all standard fitment. You can even option power sliding doors, when a push is deemed far too much effort.
The Caravelle takes up to nine passengers, with a bevy of seating configurations available depending on the people moving required. Seats can also be removed if required, which means the Caravelle can turn into a load hauling van at the drop of a hat.
Behind the wheel, the Caravelle is surefooted and well planted on the road. The wide track and grippy tyres do a great job of keeping the Caravelle composed and at times give it a sporty feel.
