VW introduces petrol versions of Caddy
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has announced that the fourth-generation Caddy Life and Caddy panel van variants are now available to order with a petrol engine. Prices start from £13,610 (Basic RRP excl. VAT) for the 1.2 TSI, 83bhp 5-speed Caddy panel van Startline model and from £15,110 for the 1.2 TSI, 83bhp 5-speed manual Caddy Life.
As with the diesel-powered Caddy models, the new petrol variants come with a full range of technology, comfort, convenience and safety features. These include a composition colour infotainment system with DAB radio, Bluetooth, and Post-Collision Braking system, as well as additional options such as High Beam Assist, City Emergency Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control.
The new Euro 6 petrol engine range will consist of a 1.2, 82bhp 5-speed manual, a 1.0, 100bhp 5-speed manual and a 1.4, 123bhp with either the 6-speed manual or 7-speed DSG gearbox available on both Caddy panel van and Caddy Life.
The Caddy is the second best-selling model in Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ range after the Transporter. There is some speculation that there will be a petrol version of the Transporter – the most popular base vehicle for campervan conversion – but nothing has been confirmed officially.
