A very trendy delivery
To celebrate 30 years and three generations of its compact Caddy van, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has launched a stylish and desirable special edition – the Caddy Edition 30.
The striking exterior follows the design of other sporty Volkswagen vans such as the Transporter Sportline which is distinguished by its black roof and roof rails contrasting with candy white paintwork with body-coloured bumpers, door handles and door mirrors, chrome grille detailing and 17-inch Budapest alloy wheels.
The interior features superior Timo upholstery and leather finishes as standard, while for even more luxury, models with direct shift gearbox (DSG) transmission feature Alcantara leather upholstery.
A high measure of specification makes this limited edition appealing. Other features include Bluetooth connectivity, climatic air-conditioning, a leather steering wheel, electric windows, electrically-adjustable and heated door mirrors, height-adjustable driver and passenger seats and front fog lights.
Under the hood is Volkswagen’s refined 2.0 litre TD 140 PS engine, giving the van the performance ability to go from zero to 100 km/h in 10 seconds. Yet this luxury van is also economical, with a combined fuel consumption of 20 km/l. And when it comes to CO2 emissions, the manual transmission models have emissions of 158 g/km while the DSG models achieve 166 g/km.
The compact size and economical running costs of the Caddy have contributed to its success and it’s now Volkswagen’s second best-selling van in the United Kingdom behind the Transporter.
With only 117 models available in the United Kingdom, the exclusivity of this release means there are no current plans to release the model in South Africa.
The Caddy Edition 30 retails around £17 660 (R248 438) for manual models, or £19 060 (R268 133) with the DSG transmission.
