VW extend production
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is extending the production of its Caddy Black Edition due to popular customer demand. The striking new model has been on sale since 1 October 2014 and will now continue to be available until 31 March 2015. Based on the Highline specification, the UK special edition includes £2,150 of additional equipment, representing a customer saving of £1,515.
The specification includes body-coloured bumpers, mirrors and door handles, fog lights, rear parking sensors, climatic air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth phone connectivity with trip computer and multi-function display. The Caddy Black Edition boasts striking Deep Black Pearlescent paint, unique black and polished 17-inch alloy wheels and silver roof rails and radiator grille surround. Drivers also benefit from a multi-functional steering wheel, leather gear knob and gaiter, heated wing mirrors and electric windows as standard.
Available in short-wheelbase panel van form only, the Caddy Black Edition is powered by a frugal 1.6-litre TDI common rail direct injection engine that develops 102PS and 250Nm of torque, and is offered with a five-speed manual transmission. BlueMotion Technology means drivers can expect fuel economy of 55.4mpg (combined) and low CO2 emissions of just 134g/km.
To give the Black Edition a sportier appearance and improved handling, the Dynamic Suspension reduces the ride height by 27mm. Inside, the seats are trimmed in leather and Alcantara, while the cabin is separated from the load cube by a full-height solid bulkhead.
The Caddy Black Edition costs £17,860 (ex. VAT).Manufacturer Profile Latest Car News
