Along with the line of minibuses T6, the Caddy model is one of the key ones for the commercial department of the Volkswagen brand – in the first two months of 2019, 25 thousand Caddy were sold worldwide, which is only slightly less than T6 (27.8 thousand).

However, in its current form, the Caddy has existed since 2015, and in fact the car that is on sale now originates from the generation of the Type 2K, released in 2003. Of course, Volkswagen understands that it is time to replace the Caddy with something more modern.

Judging by the latest spy photos, Volkswagen has already begun road tests of the perfect new generation Caddy, which will undergo significant changes in appearance – this is the newest design of the front grille VW, air intakes in the rear of the front bumper, brand new headlights on the same level as the grille, and round fog lights .

When viewed from the side, the front of the car also looks more elongated, which gives the Caddy a profile that looks more like a passenger car. The rest of the body remained square to maximize the interior space for both passengers and cargo, depending on the version.

The prototype under test also has sliding doors on each side and new taillights that seem to stretch all the way to the roof. In addition, the Caddy will move to a new MQB platform, which will offer a compact minibus with a soft hybrid powerplant, and new Volkswagen gasoline and diesel engines.

The debut of the new Volkswagen Caddy is expected in 2021, both in the standard configuration and in the Maxi version with a long wheelbase. Later in 2022, Volkswagen planned to launch a T7 minibus.
