The Caddy Maxi Life

The third annual British Tourism Week (23-29 March) is demonstrating the fun-filled variety of things to see and do in the UK, and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles ( has the perfect range of people carriers and a campervan to enjoy all the sight-seeing and British holiday activities.

From the cool VW California campervan, to the five-seater Transporter Sportline Kombi, plus spacious and practical seven-seater MPVs such as the Caravelle or Caddy Maxi Life, or the nine-seater Transporter shuttle and Crafter window van, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has the perfect selection of vehicles for touring, ‘staycations’ or for businesses that need to transport tourists.

The California is the latest in a long and iconic history of Volkswagen campervans. Unlike most of its competitors, this van is factory-designed and produced. The California van enjoys the high standard of build quality found in all Volkswagens and is sold with a full 100,000 miles/three-year warranty. It’s a real go anywhere, multi-activity vehicle that is compact enough to use every day, yet can be a real home from home, complete whenever it stops, with an electric pop-up roof, two double beds, fridge, cooker and sink, plus outdoor table and chairs neatly tucked away in the side door and tailgate.

The versatile VW Caravelle is one of the most spacious and practical people carriers available, with seven seats and a floor rail system to allow the two rear rows of seats to be adjusted to maximise passenger or luggage space. This MPV can also be used for camping, thanks to an optional ‘Sleep Pack’ that makes the second and third row of seats into a bed and includes blinds for the windows. Two new Caravelle models have just been announced, the Startline special edition, available from £23,950 (on the road) or £299 a month on a PCP (Personal Contract Plan) from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Finance Solutions, and a new long wheelbase van in SE specification.

Alternatively, for a more compact MPV, the Caddy Maxi Life is another versatile alternative from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. It also seats seven people in comfort with space for plenty of luggage, with prices from £16,015 (on the road).

The Volkswagen Transporter Sportline kombi van went on sale last year with two rows of seats, leaving a large rear section without side windows to offer better security for any work or leisure gear. The stylish Sportlinerange of vans stands out from the crowd thanks to its larger, 18in alloy wheels, lowered suspension, lower front spoiler with chrome inserts and fog lights, plus a rear spoiler and body coloured bumpers, door handles and door mirrors.

The VW Crafter window van and Transporter shuttle are two examples of Volkswagen’s extensive range of passenger carriers designed with commercial users in mind, offering a flexible variety of seating options for up to nine people.
