Volkswagen announce new Caddy van for 2015
- Created: 16 January 2015
Volkswagen have announced that the unveiling of the fourth generation Caddy van will take place in February 2015.
Not much is known about the upcoming model although it is rumoured to have a more productive load space.
The Volkswagen Caddy was released back in the early 80s and has built up a reputation as a hard wearing, reliable van.
It is rumoured that the new 2015 model will have similar styling to the 2015 VW Polo, featuring a similar frontend to the vehicle.
While the current generation of Caddy vans has proven to be immensely popular the small van’s shortfalls are becoming increasingly more apparent. When compared with competitive models like the Ford Transit Connect and Fiat Doblo the loading characteristics don’t sit as prettily.
Currently the maximum payload is 800kg, less than the one tonne for the Connect and Doblo. Also, most modern day vans feature wheel arch separation greater than 1,200mm - to accommodate a Europallet lengthways. The third generation Caddy features only 1,170mm.
We believe that the fourth generation Caddy van will feature improved loading characteristics to help ensure that it can remain on par with the competition and a firm favourite for years to come.
