The Caravelle’s cabin is well laid out with all the controls (including the dashboard-mounted gearlever) within easy reach. The steering wheel moves for rake and reach, and the seat is height-adjustable, meaning a decent driving position can be found. The vast windscreen ensures excellent visibility.
Volkswagen Caravelle space & practicality
Unsurprisingly, there's plenty of room. Seven seats are standard, but individual seats can replace the rear bench. All the seats (and the adaptable table) are fixed to rails in the floor and can be slid fore and aft, folded and removed. The second row of seats can even swivel around to face the third row. However, the seats need to be removed for maximum loadspace, and they’re incredibly heavy.
Volkswagen Caravelle equipment
For a car that costs as much as the Caravelle does, equipment isn't exactly generous. SE cars get manual air-con, alloy wheels, electric windows and door mirrors and a CD Player. Executive versions have more creature comforts - climate and cruise controls, heated front seats and powered electric sliding doors. Given that even the entry-level car is pretty expensive, we'd recommend shelling out the (relatively little) extra for the top-spec cars.
