VOLKSWAGEN is bringing in its new-generation Caddy this autumn with an engine that it claims cuts fuel consumption and emissions.
Visually, the new arrivals have had a styling tweak while the interior has also been revised. New-generation ESP is standard on all models. In all, there are six TDI engines with up to 21pc lower fuel consumption.
VW claims the Caddy will be the only vehicle in its class with the option of a six- or seven-speed direct-shift gearbox (DSG) and Hill-Start Assist. You can also order an extended wheelbase (Maxi) version and with four-wheel-drive.
The most fuel-efficient model of them all is the 1.6-litre TDI with BlueMotion Technology (102bhp). Average fuel consumption is just 4.9l/100km (CO2 emission of 129g/km).
The Caddy Life passenger model range enjoys a standard upgrade of comfort and equipment levels. The Life Trendline is the new entry model, while the Comfortline Edition tops the range.
Prices start at €14,710 for the panel van (75bhp engine, VAT/VRT included, delivery extra). The vehicles go on sale in October.
