Volkswagen announce price for their new Caddy panel van
- Created: 25 June 2015
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.
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.
