2011 Vw Caddy Edition 30 makes its debut

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 15, 2011

The Caddy will celebrate its 30th anniversary next year and to mark the event, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has developed the Caddy Edition 30. This near-production concept vehicle is on display at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show. This special edition Caddy stands out with its black roof, machine-polished alloy wheels, a high-end interior and an engine that has high output and torque. In 1982, the Caddy was launched in Europe when it was still a pick-up based on the Golf Mk1.

After 30 years passed, more than 1.5 million units of the Caddy have been sold and it is now considered a major player in the compact and urban delivery van market. The Caddy has fans from everywhere, including tradesmen, young family, and city delivery firms. The Caddy Edition 30 can be recognized with its roof and railing painted in brilliant gloss black and its very expensive machine-polished 17-inch alloy wheels.

This model has signatures on the sliding doors, the rear of the vehicle, and the door sills. The black roof stands out even more when paired with any of these five bodywork colors: Candy White, Reflex Silver, Salsa Red, Primavera Green or Sunny Yellow. Its interior comes with a five-seat or a seven-seat configuration.

Its design is sporty and high quality and the seats use Alcantara upholstery. It features a multi-function steering wheel, leather-trimmed gear stick and handbrake lever, semi-automatic (Climatic) climate control and tinted windows.

There are four different engine specifications. Two come with a short wheelbase as a car or as a panel van for commercial use. Then there’s the diesel (TDI) that delivers 75 to 125 kW. The petrol (TSI) version produces 77 kW.

The Caddy Edition 30 seen at Frankfurt is equipped with the 125 kW / 170 PS 2.0 TDI with DSG – the most powerful engine that has ever been fitted in a production Caddy. As a result, the compact MPV can reach a top speed of 196 km/h and it offers incredible traction with a torque of 350 Newton meters. With these specifications, this special edition Caddy could very well be the most dynamic one in its history.
