Volkswagen Caddy: Fifth-gen van has evolutionary looks

Volkswagen has unveiled its fifth generation Caddy van, which mixes evolutionary looks with more technology.

For diesel buyers there’s just one engine, a 2-litre turbo, in four different states of tune, ranging from 55kW (75hp) through to 110kW (150hp).

Those looking to buy a petrol-engined model can choose between: a 62kW 1.2-litre 4-cylinder, a 75kW 1-litre 3-cyclinder and a 92kW 1.4-litre 4-cylinder; all presumably feature turbocharging.

Tech features available on the new Caddy include automated emergency braking, heating elements built into the windscreen, driver drowsiness alerts, adaptive cruise control, and automated parking.

As before the Caddy will be available as a van, as well as five-seat workhorse, with the latter featuring rear side windows and sliding doors.

The new VW Caddy won’t go on sale until the end of June in Germany, with sales to begin elsewhere thereafter.
