Professional passenger transport.

From a mini-bus to a shuttle

If you’re talking about professional personal transport, most people will think of one name: the Caravelle 6.1. Over the past 30 years, it has become almost synonymous for the perfect shuttle bus. Its core expertise? Comfort and flexibility. Its unique skills? Smart digital services and cutting-edge infotainment. And at the end of the working day? It is often known to transform from an executive vehicle into your personal family mini-bus.

VIP Shuttle

The ideal choice for families, organisations and groups. From airlines and hotels to taxi companies who need to transport up to nine passengers (including the driver) in comfort and style.

Customised transport

High-quality materials, finishing and design creates a modern, comfortable atmosphere. Everything has been considered to deliver standout style and comfort, from your choice of seat packages to smart storage systems and a range of electronic features that make the Caravelle fit for the job.

Safety is our priority

We understand that safety is on the forefront of your mind, given the number of passengers that the Caravelle can accommodate. As a result, we’ve built many clever safety features into our people mover including Front Assist with City Emergency Brakes and Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Traffic Alerts.

Extra Impressive

Space for plenty of guests and all their needs

Your passengers can be very diverse, and the same goes for their individual needs. Four suitcases for a weekend away? A last-minute replacement for an overbooked trade fair hotel? No matter how surprising their needs may be: the Caravelle 6.1 will never bat an eyelid. The modular seat mounting system with a folding 3-seater bench enables you to create more luggage space at any time. And the back rests can be folded forwards to create a flat surface.

A relaxed driver makes for relaxed guests

It’s your job to make sure that your passengers get from A to B comfortably. That’s why the Caravelle 6.1 makes sure you can do just that. With its ergonomic workstation for the driver, electro-mechanical power-assisted steering and newly designed dash panel, chauffeuring has never been more comfortable. And thanks to outstanding all-round vision, you can keep an eye on the traffic more easily in bustling city centres or at major events.

Comfort made easy

A place to catch your breath – after a long journey, a tough day at work or between two important meetings. With the Caravelle 6.1, you can provide your passengers with a retreat on four wheels. And with a high standard of comfort, too: comfortable seats with sturdy cushions, outstanding sound insulation, LED reading lights, a relaxed feeling of spaciousness with plenty of head and leg room, and lots of little touches make sure your guests feel at ease as soon as they climb aboard.

From practical to helpful

Keeping an on eye on the traffic and your new route – while still keeping an ear open for your passengers. You often have your hands full when you’re a chauffeur. That’s why the Caravelle 6.1 is equipped with state-of-the-art driver assistance systems, helping you to stay as relaxed as possible. Front and rear parking sensors, a blind spot monitoring system, Rear Traffic alert come as standard. With optional lane keeping system, Park Assist, a trailer manoeuvring system and plenty more functions provide you with support on almost every journey.

Do you have to do a lot of manoeuvring? Our rear view camera is available as standard.

Keep your passengers safe

The Caravelle 6.1 features an electromechanical steering system as standard, enabling a range of intelligent driver assistance systems including Crosswind Assist and optional Lane Assist, which detects road markings to keep the vehicle in its lane. Park Assist simplifies manoeuvring into and out of tight spaces by steering automatically, leaving the driver to operate the pedals.

Time for a break

The Caravelle includes Driver Fatigue Detection, a system that evaluates steering movements and other independent signals. If fatigue is detected, the driver is warned with an alarm and a signal is shown on the console display to recommend a break.

Direct-shift gearbox (DSG)

The 7-speed dual clutch DSG permits fully automatic, almost imperceptible gear changing with no interruption in power flow, which results in significantly increased driving comfort as well as better fuel consumption. You can also choose between Normal and Sport mode.

Getting a good start

The intelligent Hill Start Assist feature allows you to make a hill start without the vehicle rolling back. If you’re on an incline greater than 5%, the system will hold your car stationary for 1.5 seconds after the foot brake is released.

Reading the signs

Multi-Collision Brake detects potential collisions using the airbag sensors. If a collision is detected, the system will apply the brakes to slow the vehicle to 10km/h so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are activated.

Carefully planned right down to the smallest detail


4MOTION all-wheel drive (optional)
Power alone is not enough. 4MOTION all-wheel drive makes sure you can always work wherever you are needed. Using an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch on the rear axle, it automatically adjusts the power transmission to the current driving conditions. The system‘s lightweight design provides the foundations for an optimum driving response and a dynamic ride.

From traction to protection
Providing additional support to the 4MOTION all-wheel drive, an optional mechanical differential lock is available for the rear axle. This makes it easier to pull away in tough off-road conditions and transforms the Caravelle 6.1 into one of the best off-road vehicles in its class.


An expert at first sight: The Caravelle 6.1 exudes confidence and reliability on every occasion.

Light your way
Good visibility in darkness and fog: The right lighting helps ensure that you and your passengers arrive at your destination feeling safe and relaxed.

Chrome Package – A piece of brilliance
Who says that multi-functional vehicles always have to look functional, too? With additional chrome strips on the bottom radiator grille, on the side panels and rear panel, you can add a number of chic, brilliant touches.

Glazing – Plain and clear
From practically opaque to heat-reflecting – our glazing options are capable of things that you wouldn’t immediately expect. However, one thing that is clear: that all of the options ensure a perfect view of the outside world.


More space for spontaneity
Some days you may be travelling with lots of passengers – and other days you may have more luggage. With its Modular Seat Mounting system, the Caravelle 6.1 provides versatile seating options and maximum possible flexibility.

Luggage compartment liner – clean and tidy
Whether you’re transporting a net full of muddy footballs or a wheely suitcase that has been dragged through mud and wet leaves: sometimes you just have to turn a blind eye in bad weather. The lightweight, non-slip liner with a 5 cm tall rim makes this slightly easier, protecting your luggage compartment from moisture and dirt.

Digital Cockpit & Navigation Systems

Thanks to the digital cockpit and We Connect, you always have the information you need at your fingertips – professionally and privately.

Digital Cockpit
The navigation map can also be positioned between the rev counter and speedometer & you can zoom in on both map images. The digital cockpit can display the local environment, for example, while the navigation system shows a larger view of the route. Simply swipe through the tracks in your smartphone media library while you keep concentrating on the road. Got a call coming in? The contact profile illustrations allow you to pick up calls quickly and intuitively.

Navigation System
You don’t really need to worry about detours with the optional navigation systems in the Caravelle 6.1. The combination of the digital cockpit with the 23.4 cm “Discover Media Pro” navigation system. The new map function allows you to show two different sections of a map.

Air conditioning & heating system

To make sure everyone feels comfortable in the Caravelle 6.1, special sensors automatically adjust the cooling output and ventilation to the power of the sun’s rays. If the windscreen fogs up the moisture sensors make sure that heat is automatically directed to the front and the windscreen heating is switched on. The fully automatic air conditioning system maintains the selected temperature for the driver, front passenger and passengers.

A range of heating systems help to create the perfect temperature in the Caravelle 6.1. Heat at the touch of a button: the auxiliary air heater works separately from the heating and ventilation system and can be controlled using both the central control panel and a remote control. An auxiliary water heater is also available as an option instead.

Radio System

Even though you sometimes encounter lots of different tastes, one thing all your passengers will agree on: a good sound. The state-of-the-art radio systems in the Caravelle 6.1 support a finely tuned balance of sound.
