Article by Christian A., on July 22, 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 VW Caddy 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 VW Caddy promises a cargo capacity of up to 3,030 liters while the Caddy Maxi offers an impressive 3,880 liters of cargo room. Under the hood, the new Caddy offers a choice of six new high-tech engines, all compliant with the Euro 5 emission limits. The engine lineup for the new Caddy includes four diesel mills.

At the base is a 1.9-liter TDI engine that delivers 75 PS (55 kW) of max output and 225 Nm of torque. It is followed by a 1.6-liter TDI mill that develops 102 PS (75 kW) of output and 250 Nm of torque. Also in the diesel lineup is 2.0-liter TDI providing 110 PS (81 kW) of output and 290 Nm of torque as well as a 2.0-liter TDI delivering 140 PS (103 kW) of output and 320 Nm of torque.

The 1.6-liter 102 PS TDI can be ordered as an option with a 7-speed DSG while the 2.0-liter 110 PS 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 mill that is tuned to develop 86 PS (63 kW) of output and 160 Nm of torque, or 105 PS (77 kW) of motive power and 175 Nm of torque.

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-liter EcoFuel (CNG) mill that delivers 109 PS (80 kW) of max output and 160 Nm of peak torque.

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 €13,595 for the panel van and €14,205 for the Startline, in each case with a 86 PS TSI engine and excluding VAT.
