The Volkswagen Caddy is a fun, efficient and practical small van which is a pleasure to drive. Comfortable, reliable and refined, it merits its popularity.
The Caddy is available in standard or Maxi length, with the latter able to carry a load of up to 736kg in a load bay of 2.25m long – large enough for a Euro pallet. A sliding door comes as standard for easy access, and with load lights for improved visibility and six tie down points, keeping cargo secure is simple. A full bulkhead is also standard, adding protection for you and your passenger.
The spacious cabin offers plenty of storage and good all-round visibility, thanks in part to the large side mirrors. A DAB+ radio CD player with Bluetooth and USB connectivity is standard on recent models, providing you with entertainment on the move and enabling you to make and receive calls safely. You’ll find it easy to get comfy too, thanks to an adjustable driver’s seat and steering column.
On the road, the Caddy is lively and powerful, with some versions able to get from 0-62mph in less than ten seconds. Its compact dimensions and small turning circle make it particularly suited to city driving too, with light steering simplifying manoeuvres.
From 2016 onwards, the used Volkswagen Caddy is available with either a four-cylinder 2.0-litre diesel engine, which produces up to 148bhp, or a 1.0-litre, 101bhp petrol engine. Both are Euro 6 compliant and the diesel variant achieves up 60.1mpg - an impressive figure that will appeal to those looking to keep operating costs low.
Standard safety features include driver and passenger front and curtain airbags, hill hold assist, electronic stability control, traction control and ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution. For security, there’s remote central locking and an immobiliser.
The Caddy comes in three trim levels, of which the Startline is most basic. It features electric heated mirrors, electric front windows, power steering and a 12-volt socket. Trendline models add air conditioning, cruise control and rear parking sensors for extra comfort and convenience.
