Oooo.... a Vanagon.
could it be the VW version then Chrysler will do for VW?
That's what I was thinking......wasn't VW supposed to get a Chrysler minivan design in exchange for tranny techonolgy (Dual clutch trannies?) ??Originally Posted by Stéphane Dumas
^^^Yup - Europe only though
This will only be sold in Europe? I didn't know that. Interesting though, they didn't do a whole lot of changes to the Chrysler vans. Where did you get this picture, guitarlix?Originally Posted by igor
interesting..... sort of reminds me of a Caliber that has eaten a Rabbit....
I wish that VW had brought the microbus concept to production. It was (and still is) really cool.

We also get VW diesels in our Caliber's, Compass', Patriot's and Avenger's, but not yet the Sebring, here in Australia.Originally Posted by DuSpinnst
I liked the Eurovan/Caravelle/Multivan/Kombi/Transporter. They made great little campers.
CR, I got it from the VW Vortex forum.Originally Posted by ChevroletRevived

I look forward to seeing what V-Dub will do with a minivan, hopefully it will rival Hondota. I am glad to a that there is still a car company that hasn't given up on the minivan (ahem GM ....)

It would have cost around $35k(from what I remeber), too muchOriginally Posted by ChevroletRevived
to justify building it. Too bad though, it's got the charm of the New Beetle
and room for seven passengers too. Definetely too cool to call a "minivan". This(the Chrysler/VW minivan) is really too little, too late for VW though, the minivan market is shrinking. They should have invested in a crossover instead.
