Article by Christian Andrei, on August 25, 2010

Volkswagen introduced today a new generation of the top-selling Caddy, a compact van with a practical rear sliding door system has been enhanced in every area. As you can see from the photos, the new car carries the same design line seen on the new Amarok and current T5 generation (Transporter, Multivan) as well as an upgraded interior with a removable second row of seats, plus further reduced maintenance costs.

The new Caddy promises a cargo capacity of up to 3,030 litres while the Caddy Maxi offers an impressive 3,880 litres. Under the hood, the new car offers a choice of six new high-tech engines, all complying with the Euro 5 emission limits. We find four diesel engines delivering 55 kW / 75 PS, 75 kW / 102 PS, 81 kW / 110 PS and 103 kW / 140 PS respectively.

The 102 PS TDI can be ordered as an option with a 7-speed DSG while the 81 kW TDI is exclusively available as a 4MOTION model with four-wheel drive. For those who want a petrol engine, they can choose the 1.2-liter developing 63 kW / 86 PS or 77 kW / 105 PS. Another frugal and extremely efficient petrol engine for the Caddy and Caddy Maxi is the natural gas version carried over from the previous generation, the 2.0 EcoFuel (CNG), which delivers 80 kW / 109 PS.

The new Cadyy offers three new models lines: the Startline, Trendline and Comfortline. The Trendline version replaces the Caddy Life and the top Comfortline version supersedes the successful special 'Style' model.

New features: Standard on all versions: new daytime running lights. Optional extras on the new range include adaptive cornering lights (integrated into the front fog lights), roof rack (standard on the Comfortline) and the newly designed RNS 315 radio/navigation system. Pricing starts at at €13,595 for the panel van and €14,205 for the Startline, in each case with a 63 kW TSI engine and excluding VAT.
