The next generation Volkswagen Caddy compact commercial vehicle has been priced at £ 17,800 when it goes on sale in December.

Volkswagen has published a price list for the fourth generation Caddy. It will be available to order in the UK from December this year with prices ranging from £ 17,800 to £ 26,850. The first customers will start receiving their vehicles towards the end of spring next year.

The all-new Caddy builds on the familiar MQB platform that underpins the newest Volkswagen Golf, meaning the model now boasts more room than ever before. The Caddy comes in both a van-based minivan and a small van badged as the Caddy Cargo, which will rival models such as the Ford Transit Connect and Citroen Berlingo.

From launch, buyers will have a choice of three trim levels – Startline, Trendline and Highline. Standard equipment on the base model includes a multifunction steering wheel, power windows, an electronic parking brake and a 6.5-inch infotainment screen. The Trendline adds body-colored bumpers, rear parking sensors, air conditioning, a leather multifunction steering wheel and an adjustable lumbar support for the driver’s seat. Buyers will also get a slightly larger 8.25-inch screen for the infotainment system.

In the top, the novelty is equipped with alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, power outside mirrors, LED taillights and alarms. Inside, there will also be a 10-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system.

Buyers will also have a choice of two wheelbases – standard and extended. In the first case, the vehicle has a length of 4,500 mm and a cargo volume of 3.1 cubic meters. The van’s wheelbase is also 2755 mm, which is 73 mm more than the previous model.

Volkswagen’s extended wheelbase variant gets an extra 215mm between the wheels, which increases the van’s maximum payload to 3.7 cubic meters. The extra space also means the Caddy Maxi can accommodate two Euro pallets – and they can be loaded from the side thanks to the larger sliding door.

At the start of sales, the new product will be offered with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine with three levels of boost – 74, 101 or 120 hp. All three units also feature a new AdBlue dual-metering system, which Volkswagen claims reduces nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions through the use of two catalytic converters. The three diesel engines will later be joined by one 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol unit producing 112 hp.

In addition, Volkswagen will expand the Caddy lineup with an off-road variant called the Caddy PanAmericana and a sports model called the Caddy Vision. In addition, the new Caddy California camper is coming soon. However, the availability of these models in the UK has not been confirmed.
