The Newly Revised Volkswagen Caddy Gets 1.0 TSI Engine
|   Saturday, February 21, 2015
Volkswagen unveiled one of the most successful commercial models in Europe: the Caddy. Even if we are talking about a product built around of the verb "work", it was created to serve utilitarian tasks, and occasionally for relaxation. Now, the Caddy has received a new face.

The model has new front optical blocks, restyled grille, the taillights were retouched and the trunk door altered. All these novelties will reflect on both versions of the German model, both the one dedicated to commodities hauling as well as the one dedicated to the transport of passengers.
It is obvious that the design philosophy applied to the VW Passat now begins to spread in the whole range.

The inside also suffers a number of improvements: we have a board and new doors panels, a new control panel, the steering wheel with bevelled bottom, metal inserts and even somewhat more colorful materials on superior equipment levels. Volkswagen will not deprive the customers and passengers of the facilities offered by new technology. Therefore, it will install various multimedia systems in the center of the dashboard, depending on the budget and level of equipment which is chosen.

The new generation Caddy also adopts a series of safety systems that, according to those from Volkswagen, makes it the best equipped utility model from this point of view.

The new Caddy receives the City Emergency Braking system, able to hold back at obstacles when speed not exceeding 30 km / h. There is also a Driver Alert system ready to recommend a coffee break when drivers are tired and adaptive cruise control that works from 0 to 160 km / h.

The engine range will include several petrol engines. In addition to the already known 1.2 liter TSI powerplant with 84 horsepower, Volkswagen will offer a three-cylinder 1-liter TSI engine rated at 105 horsepower. The top version for petrol engines remains the 1.4 TSI with 125 hp.

For those who prefer diesel, Volkswagen provides four motorizations with power ranging from 75 hp to 150 horsepower. There will be a BlueMotion version, rendered effective to consume only 4 liters / 100 kilometers, an extremely good value for a car that will tackle many urban routes. According to those of Volkswagen, all engines will provide Euro 6 emission levels and some of them can be connected to the famous dual-clutch DSG transmission.

The new Volkswagen Caddy facelift will be exposed to Geneva and first deliveries to officially kick-start in June. An interesting fact is that the 2015 Volkswagen Caddy could be sold in the US in the not too distant future.

Michael Horn, Volkswagen America CEO, suggested recently that a new commercial vehicle could join the lineup of the North America companies but he did not specify if he was talking about the new Caddy.

Volkswagen will celebrate the launch of the 2015 Caddy in Germany with a special edition model called "Generation Four". The Generation Four has body-colored bumpers and mirrors, smoked tail lamps, 16-inch alloy wheels and body-colored trim dotled along throughout the cabin.
