The new fourth generation Caddy is available in South Africa!
The new Volkswagen Caddy has launched in South Africa and will be available with three variants to choose from including a Panel Van, Crew Bus and Trendline. Volkswagen says the Caddy Alltrack version, which replaces the existing CrossCaddy, will become available in early 2016.
Both the Panel Van and Crew Bus are more suited for commercial use while the Caddy Trendline is aimed squarely at private customers. The new Caddy has been redesigned inside and out to give it more presence and to broaden its appeal.
Engines On Offer
The new Caddy shares the same engines with the outgoing model and includes a petrol engine and two diesel engines. The 1.6-litre petrol engine is only available for the Panel Van and Crew Bus and has been tweaked to offer 81 kW instead of 75 kW. The two 2.0-litre diesel engines offer 81 kW and 103 kW respectively and are available with all the variants.
The 1.6-litre petrol and 81 kW diesel engine are mated to a 5-speed manual transmission while the 103 kW 2.0-litre diesel is equipped with a 6-speed DSG transmission.
Standard safety features include ABS, ESP, Multi-Collision Braking System and dual front airbags. Hill Hold and Fatigue Detection is standard on the 103 kW version while being optional for the other derivatives.
There’s also a special edition Panel Van Sport derivative on offer from launch and this model benefits from added extras such as painted bumpers, electric windows and side mirrors, 16-inch Fortaleza alloy wheels, Composition Radio with LCD screen and climatic air conditioning. This model also gains the Comfort Package which includes cruise control, front fog lights and a multi-function display.
In Trendline trim, standard features include electric mirrors and windows, Composition Colour CD/Radio with Bluetooth, USB, six speakers, alloy wheels, climatic manual air conditioning, under-seat drawers, leather steering wheel, multi-function display and speed sensitive power steering.
Optional features are available too and choices for the Panel Van and Crew Bus include a tow bar, 15 and 16-inch alloy wheels, park distance control and Radio/CD systems. Optional features for the Trendline model include a multi-function steering wheel, 7-seater package, bi-xenon headlights and a light and sigh package which includes light and rain sensors, cruise control and an auto dimming rear view mirror.
