Tested: Volkswagen Caravelle

Family adventure for your next holiday? We tested the perfect car for the trip…

Purpose. I’ve uttered this before but it’s one of my fascinations with modern vehicles – do they fulfil the role they were made for? When “Volkswagen” and “Caravelle” popped up on my calendar I knew exactly what to do… organize an epic family road trip into the middle of nowhere.

Launch Report: Volkswagen T6

The legendary status

Talk about a trip down memory lane. When Volkswagen invited us to attend the launch of their new, sixth generation T6 models, the manufacturer hauled out plenty of dusty memories and a few shiny examples of previous models. They even gave it an ad slogan which rightly claims that “legendary status comes standard”.
