The popular Caddy has served VW since 1978, won numerous awards from commercial vehicle magazines, and is Volkswagen’s second best-selling van in the UK behind the VW Transporter. It retains the traditional VW look of the car range making it more stylish and appealing to the eyes. This car like performance is thanks to its solid build quality that assists in wind and road noise reduction into the cab that most vans suffer from. Being only slightly bigger than a car, the Caddy fits into the smaller end of the van market, making it the perfect van for cramped urban conditions. Another car like qualities included the dashboard, practical uncluttered interior and front seats offering good lumbar support for those long journeys
The new Caddy is stylish looking but boxy, and boxy is good when it comes to a van, not only in terms of the optimum load space on the inside but also for those decals that will be marketing your business for years to come. These simple lines allow for easy application/removal of vinyls without any awkward fancy shapes to work around and no distortion to branding such as your logo.
The Caddy comes with a choice of two different diesel engine types with varying power outputs. The 1.6 TDI with either 75 or 102 PS (BlueMotion version comes with 75, 102 & 140 PS) and 2.0 TDI with either 110 or 140 PS.
The next generation TDI engines come with EU6 as standard, which includes BlueMotion and start / stop technology. As a result, the Caddy’s most efficient TDI engine has a CO2 emission of 114g/Km and an mpg of 65.7, making it truly one of the most fuel efficient and environmentally friendly engine in its class. And for those petrol lovers, three petrol engines (1.0, 1.2 and 1.4-litre) will join the 1.6 and 2-litre diesel family, available for order.
The standard cargo capacity of the Caddy van is 3.2 cubic metres (1780mm x 1558mm x 1257mm high), though the width narrows to 1170 between the wheel arches. However, even with the restricted wheel arch width that comes with any van, the VW Caddy is still capable of handling a Euro pallet length ways and then some. The VW team have taken it even further with some ingenious engineering to provide even more space of up to 3m in length. This is achieved by a clever mechanism that collapses the passenger seat downward to cabin level allowing for even more storage, especially for those awkward pieces like long planks of wood.
Access is good for easy loading and offloading of up to a maximum payload of 767Kg, thanks to the low floor, 1181mm rear opening & side access door making opting for a VW Caddy van lease an even better choice for delivering goods in crowded towns and city centres
The hard wearing rubber covering protects the van floor from any damage while reducing noise into the cabin area. The Caddy has also been fitted with a plastic factory bulkhead that further reduces intruding noise, making it one of the most quiet and comfortable vans to drive in its class.
The fourth generation Caddy has now rolled out with a series of even more active safety features, including the all new City Emergency Braking (part of VW’s Front Assist Monitoring System) that automatically applies the brakes when detecting obstacles straight ahead in urban driving situations below 30mph.
As standard the Caddy is now fitted with side and curtain airbags that protect the driver and passengers from all directions and not just the front (especially important considering accident impacts can come from all directions). Also as standard is Post-Collision Braking System, a feature that is designed to minimise the severity of subsequent collisions after the initial collision takes place. This is achieved by the system automatically applying the brakes after the initial collision occurs. As an optional extra Volkswagen has the Driver Alert System that has been designed to recognise the driving behaviours that indicate tiredness. When those behaviours are detected, the system will alert the driver with both visual and audio signals to recommend you take that well deserved break.
Further optional extra equipment the VW Caddy offers includes:
