Volkswagen has announced prices for the new, fifth-generation version of its Caddy van.
The new model will initially launch in the UK with two wheelbase options – standard and Maxi, with carrying capacities of 3.1m3 and 3.7m3 respectively.
Four engine options are on offer – 75hp, 102hp and 122hp diesels, and a 114hp petrol. The 75hp and 102hp engines come with a six-speed manual gearbox and front-wheel drive, while the two more powerful engines can be had with an optional seven-speed auto, and the 122hp diesel is available with four-wheel drive.
All new Caddys come with an infotainment touchscreen, measuring between 6.5in and 10in depending on spec, while a Digital Cockpit driver information display is available as an option.
An integrated eSIM allows access to mobile online functions and We Connect services.
Newly available safety systems include Travel Assist, which delivers assisted driving across the full speed range, and Trailer Assist.
Other standard equipment across the range includes electric windows, a height-adjustable driver’s seat and a new multi-function steering wheel.
Three trim levels are on offer, with prices excluding VAT start at £17,800 for entry-level models.
Mid-range models, priced from £19,275, include electronically controlled air conditioning, body coloured bumpers, rear parking sensors, power adjustable lumbar support for the driver’s seat, and a leather steering wheel.
Range-topping models, from £22,075, add sat-nav, front parking sensors, an anti-theft alarm system, power folding door mirrors, LED tail lights and alloy wheels.
Range prices reach as high as £26,850 for a four-wheel drive Maxi variant.
Orders for the new Caddy will open next month, with the first UK deliveries expected at the end of Q1 2021.
