Volkswagen introduces petrol engines in Caddy van range

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is adding a range of petrol engines to the Caddy, Caddy Life and Caravelle vehicles.

The new Euro 6 petrol engine range will consist of a 1.2 84PS 5-speed manual, a 1.0 102PS 5-speed manual and a 1.4 125PS with either the 6-speed manual or 7-speed DSG gearbox available on both Caddy panel van and Caddy Life as well as a 2.0 150PS 6-speed manual and 2.0 204PS 7-speed DSG on the Caravelle SE short wheelbase (SWB) model.

The fourth-generation Caddy panel van continues to be available in three trim levels – Startline, Trendline and Highline – and with short or Maxi wheelbases.  The Maxi version adds 469mm to the short wheelbase’s 1,781mm and offers a load capacity of 4.2m3 (SWB 3.2m3).

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 sixth-generation Caravelle SE SWB offers space and versatility for up to six passengers. 

Vehicles are available to order now, with prices starting from £13,610 (Basic RRP excl. VAT) for the 1.2 TSI 84PS 5-speed Caddy panel van Startline model, from £15,110 for the 1.2 TSI 84PS 5-speed manual Caddy Life and from £28,950 for the 2.0 TSI 150PS 6-speed manual Caravelle SE short wheelbase.

    This move was inevitable with the focus on "dirty diesels" and with Euro 6 coming next year, which I bet has some huge price hikes, then we need other options for vans. Plus Euro 6 technology probably isn't going to be suitable for urban stop/start deliveries without major issues and visits to workshops. So well done VW for getting ahead of the game here. But I would like to see more petrol hybrid options, but not with such a price hike as the cars have.
