NEW CADDY RANGE EXTENDED FOR 2011
The new Caddy range is now more versatile than ever as the order books for the passenger-carrying Caddy Life and Caddy Maxi kombi have opened at Volkswagen Van Centres across the UK.
Both new models are fitted with an efficient 1.6-litre TDI engine which produces 102 PS, mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, while a seven-speed DSG transmission is available as an option. The refined four-cylinder common rail diesel engine achieves a combined fuel economy figure of 49.6 mpg and 149 g/km of CO2 with both transmissions. Prices for the five-seat Caddy Life start at £19,415 RRP on the road while the Caddy Maxi kombi is available from £14,450 plus VAT.
The Caddy forms the basis for the Caddy Life and the new model boasts the same comprehensive list of standard equipment as its bigger Maxi brother including ‘Climatic’ air conditioning, RCD 310 radio / CD player, body-coloured bumpers, door handles and exterior mirrors and black roof rails. New 15-inch ‘Kemora’ alloy wheels are also fitted as standard.
The Caddy Maxi kombi adds additional versatility to the already capable Caddy Maxi range with a removable three-seat bench. The rear load area, fitted with durable rubber flooring, has a capacity of 1.6 m3 with the additional bench seat in place, increasing to 3.9 m3 with the rear seats folded, up to a maximum load capacity of 4.1 m3 with these removed.
These new additions to the Caddy line-up boast a comprehensive list of safety equipment. The latest generation Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP) incorporating Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Differential Lock (EDL), Traction Control System (TCS) and Motor Slip Regulation (MSR) that prevents wheels from slipping when there is excessive engine braking on low-grip surfaces, are all fitted as standard.
