We recently reported on the announcement of the new fourth generation VW Caddy panel van which is due for a mid-year release.

The new vehicle has been priced at £13,500 and is set for a September release with orders opening in late June. The Caddy is Volkswagen's second best selling commercial vehicle, only beaten by the VW Transporter.

Volkswagen Caddy 4th Generation

This generation of Caddy is offering a new engine line-up, improved comfort and better safety features over previous generations. Launch editions come with a choice of three 2.0-litre engines with 74bhp, 101bhp and 148bhp versions available - an EU6 compliant 2.0-litre 101bhp unit is available too.

Each Caddy comes with either a five or six-speed manual gearbox. Higher powered engines have the choice of using a DSG automatic gearbox that offers six or seven-speeds depending on the engine power output.

There is also a standalone BlueMotion variant that has been introduced to the line-up which features an EU6 compliant 101bhp engine with five-speed manual gearbox. This eco-friendly model offers fuel economy of 65.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 114g/km.

The new Caddy also takes advantage of Volkswagen's new safety features, such as Park Assist and a rear-view reversing camera. There are additional measures that drivers can choose from when specifying their van; Adaptive Cruise Control with Front Assist and City Emergency Braking to name a few.

The announced price tag of £13,500 excludes VAT and OTR charges with standard equipment on-board; a five-inch touchscreen Composition Colour radio system with DAB+ and Bluetooth capability, electric windows and heated and electrically adjustable wing mirrors, driver and front passenger front, side and curtain airbags and a new post-collision braking system plus a seatbelt reminder.
