The new VW Caddy Black Edition!
Work hard – look good
For a limited period commencing this October, the Volkswagen Caddy will be subject to an upgrade that until now, has only been reserved for the most exceptional of passenger cars.
The Caddy Black Edition will launch as a premium specification panel van, combining the proven strengths of the standard-wheelbase workhorse with exclusive equipment.
Pearlescent black paint will be complimented by an array of silver highlights, including unique 17-inch alloy wheels, roof rails and radiator grille detail.
Separated from the load area by a full-height solid bulkhead, the cabin offers superior levels of interior comfort and has leather / Alcantara upholstery, plus a range of features that build on the current Highline specification.
The Black Edition’s 102PS engine will deliver an impressive 250 Nm of torque. Yet it benefits from BlueMotion Technology inlcuding cruise control, hill-hold assist, energy recuperation and start/stop as standard. It achieves a respectable 55.4mpg and CO2 output of 134g/km on the combined cycle.
‘Dynamic suspension’ reduces the ride height by 27mm, which will improve handling and the vehicle’s aerodynamics. The low-profile stance will further accentuate Caddy Black’s stylish look.
An estimated £5,500 of individual features will be included in the discounted package price of only £2,800 above the base vehicle, meaning customers will save around £2,700.
Closer to launch, a more detailed product bulletin will be available to cover vehicle dimensions, weights and a select range of accessories that will further enhance this new special edition model. Brochure flyer material will also be available for customer communications.
