The Caddy Life is just another success off the VW production line

The VW Caddy is a light commercial vehicle that has been produced and redeveloped for decades. The Caddy Life is just another success off the production line and, while it is no longer continued, you can find high-quality second-hand editions if you look hard enough!

The Caddy Life combines space, safety, quality, and luxury in one handsome vehicle. Not only this, but they’ll do lots of work for those looking for commercial gain or to travel long distances in groups. Even with a fully-laden set of passengers, there’s a lot of space for people to store equipment and essential items without having to awkwardly maneuver around due to the well-thought-out interior.

It has since had a few stages of evolution. It has always been created in a multiple of ways, including the Kombi, the Window Panel Van, and, of course, the Caddy Life. It was initially made in the mold of a Golf Mk5. The first step was to create a more aerodynamic version due to the lack of such aspects prior. Previous models possessed windshields that were more vertical while harboring other non-aerodynamic elements.

A later version in 2013 came with fresher updates such as improved ergonomics and space. The idea was to take the strain out of the work and to make it easier to drive. Features included a height-adjustable driver’s seat, an anti-dazzle rear-view mirror, and a radio CD player.

The reliable and well-constructed sliding doors are a good fit for easy access for passengers, which is why it’s an excellent option for families. It’s the smallest of the commercial vehicle line-up, but still an excellent size that offers a huge range of options for those who want space and great handling!

The VW Caddy Life comes in five variants, looking fantastic and fitting in well for both business and home life. It may look small on the outside, but don’t be fooled: the proportions are there with enough space for the whole family.
