The Volkswagen Caddy is a compact van with all the mod accessibilities and twin sliding doors, ideal to hold bigger products. The Caddy is a versatile addition to your squad, with plenty of getting up and go.
The Transporter ‘s smaller brother, the Caddy is a fun and powerful compact car, bearing much of the same characteristics as its bigger sibling. Powerful, comfortable and with a growing but manageable load area, the Caddy succeeds in combining functional features with good driving capacity. The newer generations are especially impressive in their performance, which is particularly true in the TDI engines (either 1.6 or 2.0), which nevertheless remain powerful and return strong MPG figures. The 753 kg payload and 4.2m3 volume (in the Caddy Maxi range) does not satisfy all needs as it is on the small side of the van scale but will provide enough for those looking for a good balance of practicality and driving satisfaction.
All diesel and petrol engines are available in the range, with a TDI of 2.0 litres generating 74bhp, 101bhp and 148bhp matched against three petrol engines – a 1.4-liter (123bhp), a 1.2-liter (83bhp) and a 1.0-liter (101bhp) three-cylinder option. While petrol engines are becoming increasingly popular in light commercial vehicles, they still do not attract large volumes as panel vans and typically remain the preserve of variants carrying passengers.
There’s also a trio of Caddy trim packages, and the range kicks off with the Caddy Startline featuring City Emergency Braking Front Assist, a five-inch DAB radio / CD player touchscreen, electrical windows and mirrors, and a single side door sliding. Going up to the Caddy Trendline, you will have climate control, cruise, height adjustable driver seats and body colour bumpers.
