VW pays homage to 1960s Kombi with Caravelle Generation Six
Volkswagen has revealed its Caravelle Generation Six, which pays homage to the original 1960s Kombi… no word on whether it’ll be available Down Under.
VOLKSWAGEN HAS revealed a special edition Caravelle Generation Six people mover which pays homage to the brands original Kombi. Given a red and white two-tone exterior, the Caravelle Generation Six also gets 18-inch DISC alloys as standard, a tweaked interior with limited-edition inserts and top of the range T6 Caravelle specification.
There’s still a cloud hanging over Volkswagen, if you’ll pardon the pun, and its diesel engine technology, but the T6 Caravelle gets Euro 6 engines with BlueMotion Technology in different states of tune, these are mated to a seven-speed DSG.
On the inside, the Caravelle Generation Six gets exclusive Alcantara / leather seats, with textile floor mats in “Moonrock and Titanium Black”. There’s a leather covered multi-function steering wheel, the new Discover Media infotainment / navigation system which also has DAB and Bluetooth as standard.
There’s also a step illumination with ‘Generation Six’ lettering, decorative trim and a decorative insert across the dashboard to match the two-tone exterior. The Generation Six offers three-zone climate control.
So, what do you think… will the Generation Six become an icon like the original?
