VOLKSWAGEN arguably invented the people-mover genre with its 1949 Type 2 T1 Kombi. For 2010 it has introduced a half-step change for the T5 van range with the significantly revised T5 GP range, thinning down the Caravelle model to one long-wheelbase nine-seat version with the new Euro 5 103kW TDI diesel engine and seven-speed DSG transmission. Has the new powertrain, facelifted front, lower price and raft of other minor changes made the Caravelle a better bus?
Model release date: 1 March 2010 to 1 December 2015
