Volkswagen’s Caddy van does more than carry swathes of equipment and goods securely. The Caddy Maxi window van variant is a dedicated crew carrier that retains the flexibility to hold cargo if needed. Getting your team on-site is effortless and economical in this capable compact van.
The Caddy Maxi window van’s exterior is well-suited to the environments the vehicle will likely encounter. Hard-wearing plastic front and rear bumpers will stand up to knocks well when you take the model onto gravel or muddy tracks. Side strips made from the same material preserve each flank. In any situation the alloy wheels (Comfortline and Highline models only) will enhance the van’s road-holding ability while also adding to its aesthetic appeal. Rear passengers take their seat through one of the two sliding side doors, and access to cargo is through a vertical opening at the back.
Up to seven people can be carried inside the vehicle, but its flexibility means this can change to match the demands of individual journeys. In five-seat mode, the middle three seats can be split and folded or removed completely to increase the total cargo area. When you do need to transport materials or tools they can be held down safely using six load lashing points. Ergonomics play a large role in the satisfaction that is felt at the wheel. A raised driving position shows more of the road, and here you can easily reach for controls on the centre stack.
Engines and performance
New-generation diesel engines shift a fully-laden cabin confidently and without a compromise on efficiency. Volkswagen’s BlueMotion Technology is also included as standard to help the van’s powertrains meet strict Euro 6 emissions standards. For the 101bhp 2.0-litre diesel this means combined economy as high as 60.1mpg and CO2 emissionsof 124g/km. Extra pulling power is given by the 148bhp alternative which also transfers 340Nm of torque to the driven wheels.
Safety and technology
Optimum safety is another reason why the Caddy Maxi window van is a worthwhile addition to any business. Its active technologies work in harmony to address a loss of traction and keep the van pointing in the right direction. As standard they include Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), a Traction Control System (TCS) and Engine Drag Torque Control (MSR). Driver and front passenger airbags are also no-cost additions to every model in the range.
Staying in touch with the rest of the team and clients is made possible by the vehicle’s on-board technology. Connect a smartphone to the Bluetooth® interface and take calls at the wheel. To keep this device or others fully charged, simply link them to the 12-volt accessory socket at the start of the trip. For entertainment there is a built-in DAB digital radio which is operated either through the five-inch touchscreen display or buttons on the steering wheel (where fitted).
