The 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show was the venue for the unveiling of the latest off-road style version of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ Caddy, the Caddy Alltrack. Succeeding the Cross Caddy, this urban delivery van and family multi-purpose vehicle is unique from other Caddy models thanks to distinctive features like its Mojave Beige metallic paintwork and exclusive 17-inch ‘Quito’ alloy wheels, as well as the optional 4MOTION all-wheel drive technology.
This off-road version of the Caddy is further made distinct by matt silver sill tread plates with the Alltrack logo. Available in passenger car and panel van versions, the Caddy Alltrack features black side sills, black trim panels on the wheel arches, and the lower edges of the bumpers – all giving the Alltrack a robust character.
These features are contrasted by Alltrack parts painted in body color like the vehicle’s bumpers, protective side strips and door handles. Likewise, the Caddy Alltrack’s black designer underbody protection is contrasted by additional silver accents.
Other visual features of this Caddy off-roader include typical Alltrack elements like the three chrome fins in a painted radiator grille, H7 twin halogen front lights, silver exterior mirror housings from the passenger car version, smoked tail light clusters and fog lights.
The vehicle also features Alltrack logos on the front grille and at the rear, and silver roof rails. Inside, the passenger car version of the Alltrack has special 7Summits seat covers with folding tables on the front seatbacks. On the other hand, the panel van version of the Caddy Alltrack has seat covers made of tough Pillion fabric.
Both the passenger car and panel van versions are treated to a leather package – including on the steering wheel, handbrake lever, gear lever boot -- with Muscat-color stitching. Other features for the passenger car version include adjustable center armrest and a chrome package for the rotary light switch, handbrake lever button and power window switches.
This version of the Alltrac also features Carbon Square Dark cockpit décor, Alltrack floor mats with Muscat-color stitching and aluminum-look pedals.
Sitting at the core of the new Caddy Alltrack is any of the available engine and gearbox combinations. In fact, customers could avail of the optional 4MOTION all-wheel drive on their new Caddy Alltrack. Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is now selling the Caddy Alltrack in Germany but currently has no plans to sell the vehicle in the United Kingdom
