Volkswagen offers petrol engines in Caddy and Caravelle
Published: 15 December, 2015
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has launched its popular Caddy Life and Caddy panel vans and its Caravelle with petrol engines. The move comes in the wake of the diesel emissions scandal.
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 Caddy is the second best-selling model in Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles' range after the Transporter. 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 sixth-generation Caravelle SE SWB offers space for up to six passengers.
Prices start 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.
