New Volkswagen Caddy Van Confirmed for 2020
Nobody likes to be teased, but that’s exactly what Volkswagen have been doing with the new Caddy. Already a popular model, the Volkswagen Caddy Van 2020 looks set to feature some stylish new upgrades. So, what can you expect from this year’s release? Read some early thoughts ahead of its mid-2020 release.
If you’re wondering how different the 2020 Volkswagen Caddy Van will be, then you only need to ask Volkswagen, who say ‘one thing is for sure, no screw has been left untouched’ and that ‘the new generation is going to be very different.’
The new Caddy is expected to feature a sportier look, and judging by early sketches, this could well be the case. A sportier look could help draw in a different kind of buyer, appealing to both trade and business, as well as others wanting to get more from their vehicle. As part of its sportier features, it will have larger wheels, a smaller grille and LED lights as standard. Load space is expected to sit at 4.2 cubic metres.
The Caddy will be available in both short-wheelbase (SWB) and Maxi long-wheelbase (LWB) designs, while there will also be Caddy Cargo panel van and Caddy Life people-carrying models.
While initial sketches mainly show off the aesthetic side of the Caddy, it’s expected that the fourth-generation 2020 Caddy could feature a 2.0 TDI turbodiesel engine with 75PS - 150PS. There is also the possibility of an electric option alongside typical petrol and diesel variants.
The fun elements of the Caddy are also likely to get an update, featuring Volkswagen’s recent touchscreen system that packs a range of entertainment options including both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Being very much a city vehicle as well as a practical one, buyers will likely get a lot of enjoyment from the Volkswagen Caddy.
The Volkswagen Caddy will have a lot of competition on its hands from other small vans, including the Peugeot Partner, the Citroen Berlingo and Vauxhall Combo Cargo. These award-winning models are all popular in the category, so the Caddy will need to be special to help it make a dent in the market. The ambition is there from Volkswagen to be the market leader, so it’s safe to assume that it ticks all of the necessary boxes.
And what price point can be expected from the Volkswagen Caddy? While pricing information has yet to be released, the existing Caddy retails from £19,965, so it’s likely that the 2020 model will retail higher than this. It won’t be long until this information is released, with further details expected this month before a release later in the year.
