Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has announced that the fourth-generation Caddy Life and the longer wheelbase Maxi versions – including Maxi Life, Maxi Kombi and Maxi Window van – are now available to order ahead of first UK deliveries in September. Prices for the short wheelbase Caddy Life 2.0-litre TDI 102 PS Euro 6 engine, start from £15,600; Caddy Maxi Life with the same engine starts from £17,985.
As with the new Caddy Panel van which opened for ordering at the start of July, these models come with the same new technology, comfort, convenience and safety systems. These include composition colour infotainment system with DAB, Bluetooth, heated windscreen, post-collision braking, daytime running lights and BlueMotion Technology modifications, for added efficiency and lower emissions, as standard. As well as additional systems such as Brake assist, City Emergency Braking and cruise control.
Caddy Life and Maxi Life come with a significant amount of standard equipment, but there are also some desirable options available to help with everyday life behind the wheel. These include; Park Assist, which makes light work of manoeuvring into parking spaces, or Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), which will keep you at a pre-set distance from the car in front by regulating your speed in accordance with the traffic around you.
These new models all come with the 2.0-litre TDI Euro 6 engines and are available with a 102 PS or 150 PS power output. They also have BlueMotion Technology modifications as standard, which include low-rolling-resistance tyres as well as regenerative braking and stop/start systems. The most economical 102 PS engine has a combined fuel consumption of up to 65.7mpg and a CO2 output of just 114g/km.
Volkswagen’s Caddy Life offers flexible seating for up to seven passengers, including the driver. The two rear rows of seats can be folded, double folded or removed to leave a loading space of up to 3,030 litres. The Caddy Maxi Life, with its extra 420mm length, offers an additional 340 litres, bringing the total loading area up to 3,370 litres.
The new Caddy Maxi Kombi will be N1* type approved and starts from £17,510 for the 2.0-litre TDI 102 PS Euro 6 engine. The new Caddy Maxi Window Van will start from £17,185 for the same engine and will be M1* type approved.
