If you’re looking to transfer a group of five and any equipment they may possess, then this will be convenient enough for you.
The Volkswagen Caddy Maxi kombi is a versatile vehicle that offers up a lot of options. If you’re looking to transfer a group of five and any equipment they may possess, then this will be convenient enough for you. It features everything you’d expect from a Caddy but offers an extra three seats and a significant cargo area.
Starting in 2005, the Volkswagen Caddy shared a lot of parts with the Golf Mk5 and Touran. The idea was to make an aerodynamic vehicle compared to previous editions – these previous editions would have more vertical windshields and other non-aerodynamic elements.
The fresher edition arrived in 2013. This newer VW Caddy was a compact vehicle that was necessary for harboring bodies and equipment while maintaining car-like convenience and design. It’s available to be used as a van or as a seven-seater people carrier. The ergonomics, reliability, and spaciousness mean it is very easy to drive by all accounts. The features included are the likes of a height-adjustable driver’s seat, rubber flooring covering, a radio CD player with two speakers, AUX connectivity, and an anti-dazzle rear-view mirror.
The 2020 model is the first VW commercial vehicle that uses the MQB platform. It has more passenger-type characteristics in order to become more of a domestic vehicle for that of an entrepreneur or a contractor. The idea is to make it less like a van and more like a domestic family car – there is even an infotainment unit with a touchscreen. In its longest variant, it can be filled with two Euro pallets of cargo – through the rear doors or via a sideways method.
With regard to trim levels, the Caddy has three options available: the Startline, the Trendline, and the Highline.
The Startline’s look basic on the outside. It has asymmetric rear-wing doors with a heated rear window and wash-wipe. A heat-insulating windscreen is included. There are also asymmetric rear-wing doors with opaque windows. The Startline will typically possess fifteen-inch steel wheels and a single-side loading door. Black passenger car-style door mirrors and handles and black front/rear bumpers are a part of this trim.
In terms of the interior, the Startline contains Austin cloth upholstery. It includes a controlled heating system with air recirculation and a dust & pollen filter. Electric windows come as standard, as is expected. It has an adjustable steering column, while the passenger seat has a reach and rake adjustment.
The Trendline gives you everything the Startline does, but with added extras. The VW Caddy will also possess climatic air conditioning, cruise control with a speed limiter, and height adjustment for both the driver and passenger seat. There are also compartments under the driver’s seat and front passenger seat. Twin sun visors with vanity mirrors are also available to those in the front. The driver will receive an eight-way adjustable seat, including lumbar support. Finally, there will be covers for the steel wheels.
The Highline model possesses the Lights and Vision pack. This includes an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and a rain sensor with automatic wipers and intermittent control. The exterior possesses fog lights, a heated windscreen, and a Thatcham Category 1 approved immobilizer.
In terms of the engines available, the Caddy will have two options that come in the form of 1.6 and 2.0-liter capacities. The 1.6-liter TDI comes with outputs of 75 and 102PS. The lower output model possesses around 225Nm of torque, while the higher output will have that of 250Nm. With regard to the 2.0-liter TDI, you’ll get either 110PS or 140PS – with the 110PS version providing 280nM of torque. If you choose the 140PS version, you’ll get upwards of 320Nm.
The smaller 1.6-liter TDI comes with either a five-speed manual or a DSG automatic transmission. The 2.0 is identical in terms of the automatic transmission but has an extra gear regarding the stick shift.
