VW touts Caravelle luxury liner
From News24 website:

Volkswagen's signature MPV has made a dramatic departure from its utilitarian roots with the Caravelle Business, designed to be a plush mobile office for business travellers and VIPs.

The new flagship bus has seen the light of day in Europe, designed to be a mobile conference room with amenities such as wi-fi and Bluetooth on board.

It's a clear swipe at Mercedes-Benz’s ultra-luxury Viano but the Caravelle Business gives business people limo-like comfort levels in a spacious VW bus.


The (only) six-seater has four individual seats – finished in Nappa leather - in the rear cabin. The middle seats can still be swivelled to face forward, while the rear bench is split by a console also used to house a fridge.

Adding to the super-luxury setting, the Caravelle Business’s cabin is updated with burr wood inserts, satellite navigation and a 17cm colour screen, a 30Gb hard drive and a programmable heater to ensure occupants are kept toasty.

Viewed from the outside, the Caravelle Business’s look is kept discreet with privacy glass protecting the occupants’ identities while darkened rear light clusters, front and rear parking sensors, LED daytime running lights and electric sliding doors add to the mix.

And while the Caravelle Business will not be sold in South Africa, Volkswagen SA has said several of the flagship’s features can be specified for Caravelles ordered locally, such as the pop-up table, electric sliding doors and xenon lights.

Caravelles sold in South Africa are powered by the same two-litre, 132kW, bi-turbo TDI engine with 400Nm on tap, mated to a seven-speed DSG transmission as standard.

Awesome, makes me envious, now see how much we have to do to upgrade our Syncro interiors, i wish they would stop raising the bar!
