Deliveries start early in 2021, and potential buyers can access a deposit contribution of up to £2,400, plus a low finance rate, and orders made before March 31 are eligible for a free upgrade options.
The new van offers more efficient engine options, various driver assistance systems to boost safety and it has more space on board.
There’s also a new connected infotainment system and a digital cockpit that Volkswagen says effectively turns the Caddy Cargo into a ‘smartphone on wheels’.

This is the fifth-generation of the Volkswagen Caddy which is available as the passenger-carrying Caddy as well as the Caddy Cargo panel van.
There are three trims, the Commerce is the entry-level offering, followed by the Commerce Plus and the Commerce Pro is the range-topper.

That’s just for the entry-level model, with the other models coming with more equipment.

This will see drivers enjoying tyre pressure monitoring, a rear-view camera and adaptive cruise control.
And with more space on board, the Caddy Cargo is able to carry a Euro pallet sideways in the load bay.
There’s also a range of diesel and petrol engines available.
