VW moves into limo luxury with special Caravelle model
The Caravelle Business has been designed to be a mobile conference room with state of the art technology, including Wi-Fi internet connectivity and Bluetooth, combined with the ultimate in luxury. It boasts six seats (including driver) including a sociable rear lounge area with four individual seats and an adjustable table.
Like every Caravelle, the two middle seats swivel to face forwards or backwards, but the Business is upgraded with the highest quality Nappa leather upholstery while the rear bench seat is replaced by an opulent twin seat console which is multi-adjustable and heated with an integrated fridge between the seats.
The interior of the Caravelle Business is enhanced with elegant burr wood inserts in the rear passenger compartment, plus the added safety of curtain airbags, while for the driver’s convenience there is cruise control, satellite navigation with 6.5 in colour screen and 30GBhard drive, a leather multi-function steering wheel, lane change assist and a programmable heater to ensure the interior can always be ready at the desired temperature. A second battery with cut-off relay ensures the rear seating area can be powered independently.
Performance is delivered by Volkswagen’s most powerful 2.0-litre 180PS bi-turbo TDI engine offering 34.9 mpg on the combined cycle and Euro5 emissions of 214 g/km. The Caravelle Business is now on sale with retail prices starting from £53,856 (plus VAT), or £56,069 (plus VAT) with 4MOTION transmission.
