VW has added the lux­u­ri­ous Pan-Amer­i­cana to the Car­avelle line up. A 2.0 turbo diesel makes 132 kW and 400 Nm from a very low 1 500 rpm and the 4MOTION sys­tem can send this power to all wheels through a seven-speed dual clutch trans­mis­sion. Sell­ing for R955 400 with a five-year/60 000km main­te­nance plan, a three-year/120 000 km war­ranty, the Pan-Amer­i­cana faces stiff com­pe­ti­tion from Merc’s V-Class 250 D and Hyundai’s H1 Bus. Merc cur­rently of­fers R25 000 deal as­sist on their van’s R949 020 price, with ser­vice in­ter­vals of up to 40 000 km, a more pow­er­ful turbo diesel (140 kW and 440 Nm) and a six-year/100 000 km main­te­nance plan. The nine-seater, au­to­matic H1 sells for R639 900, with a best-in-class seven-year or 200 000 km war­ranty.
