The Caravelle Business can be recognized by privacy glass, 17in alloy wheels, darkened rear light clusters, electrically folding door mirrors and laminated windscreen. It also uses front and rear parking sensors with reversing camera and Xenon headlights with automatic activation, LED daytime running lights, headlamp washer system and heated front washer jets, as well as electric sliding side doors.
