Vw launches Trendline and Highline models of Caddy, Transporter

Article by Christian A., on October 23, 2012

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has launched Trendline and Highline models throughout its top-selling Caddy and Transporter ranges. These highly appealing vans provide a higher value for money. The new models stand for tremendous value. For instance, a Caddy Trendline is filled with specification valued at up to £1,555 (plus VAT).

However, it commands a premium of £900 (plus VAT) compared to the standard model, standing for customer savings of more than £650. The Caddy Trendline features Bluetooth connectivity, an updated CD/radio with ParkPilot display for rear parking sensors, cruise control, electric windows, height adjustable passenger seat, heated and electrically operated door mirrors, storage compartments under the front seats, vanity mirrors in the sun visors and a cover for the dashboard centre storage compartment. The exterior’s aesthetic gets a boost with its wheel trims and body-coloured bumpers, door mirrors and door handles.

The Caddy Highline is priced £1,900 (plus VAT) higher than the standard model, with extra specifications valued up to £3,245 (plus VAT). These include all the improvements found in the Trendline model plus Climatic air conditioning, a leather-covered steering wheel and gear knob, alloy wheels, front fog lights and an alarm. The Trendline models in the Transporter range get an upgraded CD/radio with ParkPilot display and AUX-IN socket, Bluetooth, trip computer and multifunction display, cruise control, full bulkhead (panel van), driver’s seat armrests, Comfort pack and Premium dashboard, Tasamo cloth upholstery, wheel trims, rear parking sensors and body-coloured bumpers, door mirrors and door handles.

On the other hand, the Kombi Trendline models also feature privacy glass, together with armrests and height and lumbar adjustment for single passenger seat. Opting for the Transporter Trendline means the buyer has to pay £1,100 more for the panel or £1,250 more for the kombi, meaning that there would be savings of £750 and £800 respectively against the actual value of the additional specification.

Upgrading from the Trendline to a Highline costs just £1,100 (plus VAT) higher for the panel van and £1,200 (plus VAT) for the kombi. The Highline features a leather-covered steering wheel and gear knob, Climatic air conditioning and a Thatcham approved alarm, plus alloy wheels and front fog lights. The Highline specification offers a value of up to £3,595 (plus VAT) for the panel van and up to £3,795 (plus VAT) for the Kombi. But they only cost £2,200 (plus VAT) more or £2,450 (plus VAT) morel, respectively compared to the standard model.
