What Car? says...
We doubt the Volkswagen Caravelle needs much in the way of an introduction; after all, you can trace its lineage all the way back to the original split-screen VW bus that was launched in 1950. While that was, in effect, a stretched Beetle with a box on top, the latest ‘T6.1’ is a purpose-built people-mover.
Of course, you don’t need to look too hard to see that the T6.1 also comes as a purpose-built van: the Transporter. That puts it up against rivals such as the Citroën Spacetourer, Peugeot Traveller and Ford Tourneo Custom – all candidates if you’ve outgrown a Ford Galaxy or Seat Alhambra.
