Volkswagen Caravelle summary

The withdrawal of the centre console – enabled by removing the traditional brake pedal and gear selector – has resulted in a flat floor throughout the cabin. According to Volkswagen, it gives the foundation version 469 litres of boot space, which one can increase to 1,844 litres with both the rear of the vehicle seats removed.

The Multivan's motorist's compartment has also undergone significant changes to put it more in tune with Volkswagen's most recent vehicles. Standard features include a redesigned multifunction steering column, a 10.25-inch instrument panel display, and a 10-inch infotainment touchscreen. A head-up display and a wireless smartphone charging are available as upgrades.

A variety of sophisticated safety features, including traffic sign recognition, carriageway assistance, and automated emergency braking, are also offered.

Adaptive steering wheel and carriageway assistance are included in the drive system. The Multivan hybrid PHEV combines a 150 hp, 1.4-litre turbocharged gasoline engine with a 116 hp power source on the front axle for a total output of 218 hp, with a 13 kWh battery underneath the floor allowing for electric-only operation on "short made available to the public." Volkswagen estimates a maximum EV range from around 50 km.

1.5-litre and 2.0-litre supercharged petrol engines are also accessible, with a 204 hp diesel joining the lineup this year or next.

While the PHEV has its own 6-speed dual-clutch (DSG) transmission, the standard petrol models use an 8-speed transmission.

Volkswagen Caravelle LATEST UPDATES

The all-new Volkswagen Multivan has already been unveiled, marking the most substantial redesign of one of the company's largest MPVs in its 71-year existence.

The Volkswagen Multivan, built on a modified MQB chassis, includes a new interior and exterior design. It comes with many standard amenities in both gasoline and plug-in hybrid power choices.

Volkswagen has discarded the Caravelle name to replicate the MPV's wide-ranging reinvention. The renaming also signifies that it no longer shares its underpinnings with the Transporter commercial van. It is now basically a stand-alone vehicle, with the large commercial Carrier variant set to be substituted by a Ford-built replacement, coupled with the Transporter.

Alternatively, the 7-seater is based on the Volkswagen Team's MQB platform, already employed by the Seat Tarraco, Skoda Kodiaq, and Volkswagen Tiguan. This change opens the way for a slew of groundbreaking technical, aesthetic, and ergonomic improvements, as well as the MPV's first-ever connector hybrid engine.

The 7-seater has been fully revamped. It carries visual cues towards the 1985 T3-generation Transporters among its distinguishing elements, in addition to the technical improvements. It comes in a horizontally divided, two-tone livery, but it stands apart from the current Caravelle thanks to a full-width bonnet and crisp LED lighting.

The car is 1,941 mm wide, 4,973 mm long, and 1,903 mm tall as standard, though an extended-wheelbase alternative of 5,173 mm is accessible. Its proportions in LWB configuration are comparable to those of the Kia Carnival sold in India. Aerodynamics is said to boost efficiency as well.

The Multivan, according to Volkswagen, is more adaptable and roomy on the interior than its predecessor, citing a new flexible seating arrangement and multifunction table as examples. One can completely remove the five back seats, and rotate the back row to provide a friendly sitting arrangement.

A spacious and comfortable car.

In an exigency, the REVive function can assist extend range.

Straight-line power is explosive, and the back seat is quite accommodating.

The diesel engine yields a lot of low-end torque.

The advanced, agile dampers absorb collisions nicely.

The range is limited to 140km.

At this pricing, there aren't many features.

Only the motorist's airbag is required.

Soft suspension can sometimes be a nuisance. Its arrangement makes it less manoeuverable in bends.

The price is too similar to the larger, more sophisticated 5 Series.

Volkswagen Caravelle EXPERT REVIEWS

The Caravelle's enormous glasshouse and wraparound sunroof, as well as the reality that there has been plenty of room, contribute to the enhanced sensation of spaciousness.

The Caravelle excels in the back, with plenty of legroom and headroom, as well as a beautifully-contoured backrest. And, because of the extended wheelbase, the Caravelle has legroom and under-thigh assistance comparable to the original 5 Series, which is excellent.

We wouldn't suggest the 3 CARAVELLE just because of its automatic transmission. The off-road abilities are an important part of its personality, so if you don't plan on utilising it off-road (as you should!), stay away.

Providing the automatic transmission in cheaper variations, including 4x2 models, is a 'natural thing to do’. The advanced motor still foodstuffs 170 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. It also doesn't drive any differently than the BS4 does.

On the other hand, the engine seems much smoother at idling and while driving. The vibrations on the floorboard and the pedal aren't as loud as they formerly were.

The Caravelle is a notch back with a big boot that can store 520 litres of cargo. If that wasn't enough, one could lay the back seats flat to provide a luggage area of up to 1600 litres, making this extremely useful.

The M Sport comes with cruise control with automated braking and a touchscreen infotainment cluster that adapts to the driving mode. All these features aren't accessible at the Luxury Line level.

The Caravelle is an excellent premium sedan with more road authority and personality than many classic sedans. It is essentially a more upscale 330i with improved back seat comfort and great performance.

Is it, however, more appealing than the regular CARAVELLE?

We would think it is, at least in the unique Estoril blue.

It is also tough to overlook all the M Sport goodies (read: sports seats, wheels, and a digital dashboard) that this car receives above the Luxury Line grade. The main flaw in this package is the comfort-oriented suspensions, which doesn't do the M emblem on the fender justice.
