Good reasons to buy a Volkswagen Caddy Edition 30... 117 of them!
To celebrate 30 years and three generations of its compact Caddy
van, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has launched a stylish and
desirable special edition - the Caddy Edition 30.
With only 117 of this limited edition model available in the UK,
the Caddy Edition 30 is also exclusive. The striking exterior
follows the design cues of other sporty Volkswagen vans, such as
the Transporter Sportline, and it is distinguished by a black roof
and roof rails contrasting against Candy White paintwork, with
body-coloured bumpers, door handles and door mirrors, plus chrome
grille detailing, 17-inch 'Budapest' alloy wheels and Edition 30
logo on the door sills and exterior.
A high standard specification makes the Caddy Edition 30 not
only appealing but also great value. Features include Bluetooth
connectivity, Climatic air conditioning, leather steering wheel, an
upgraded RCD 310 radio/CD unit, electric windows, electrically
adjustable and heated door mirrors, tailgate with heated rear
window and wash/wipe, height adjustable driver's and passenger's
seats, plus front fog lights. The superior Timo upholstery is
standard, while for even more luxury, models with DSG transmission
feature alcantara leather upholstery.
With Volkswagen's refined 2.0-litre TDI 140 PS engine, the Edition
30 has the performance to go from zero to 62 mph in just 10 seconds
(10.1 for DSG models), yet it is also economical with combined fuel
consumption of 47.1 mpg (44.8 DSG), and low emissions of 158 g/km
(166 DSG). Low insurance groups of 6E and 7E for manual and DSG
models, respectively, also help reduce running costs.
The compact size and economical running costs of the Caddy have
proved a great success, and it is now Volkswagen's second
best-selling van in the UK behind the Transporter. The first Caddy,
introduced for the 1983 model year, was based on the Golf Mk I
pick-up body, but was also available with a hardtop. The Mk II
model was introduced in 1995, initially as a van, followed later by
a pick-up version, and the current, third generation superseded it
in 2003, with the addition of the long wheelbase Caddy Maxi in
Edition 30 is now available in Volkswagen Van Centre showrooms,
with retail prices of £17,660 (excluding VAT) for manual models, or
£19,060 (excluding VAT) with the DSG transmission.
