Volkswagen will introduce a new generation Caddy during this year Geneva Motor Show. The popular utility vehicle is at the fourth generation and features revised styling and a new range of engines, also including the first three-cylinder unit ever used in a Caddy. Around 1.5 million of the award-winning previous generations were sold worldwide during its eleven years in production.
 
The revised styling includes lines from the new philosophy, also used on the new Passat and Polo, with sharp cues and narrow features. We can notice the new look of the front and rear lights.
 
The Caddy's new engines provide maximum efficiency and compliance with the EU6 emissions standard. The basis for the four TDI diesel versions is always a two-litre four-cylinder engine. Their performance ranges from 75 hp to the top engine with 150 hp. The most efficient unit is the Caddy panel van BlueMotion that can offer fuel consumption of less than 4 litres per 100 kilometres (58 mpg).
 
In the case of petrol engines, there is a choice of three. They range from the 1.2-litre four-cylinder TSI with 84 hp and the 1.0-litre three-cylinder TSI with 102 hp up to the large 1.4-litre TSI four-cylinder with a power output of 125 hp.
 
The new Caddy is also equipped with City Emergency Braking: if the driver fails to see an obstacle below a speed of 30 km/h (18 mph), the system automatically applies the brakes. In the passenger car versions, the new Caddy additionally comes fitted with side and curtain airbags.
 
In the case of the optional Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), which is active at speeds of 0 to 160 km/h (DSG) or 30 to 160 km/h (manual transmission), a radar sensor monitors the distance and relative speed to vehicles in front. Used with the DSG, the ACC system can also slow the vehicle down, for example in queues or traffic jam situations, to a complete stop.
 
Volkswagen does not offer the Caddy in North America. Instead, choose from Ford Transit Connect, Chevrolet City Express, Nissan NV200, or Ram ProMaster City.
