The new Caddy 'Runner'
The Caddy range has expanded and become even more accessible thanks to the new Caddy ‘Runner’ – priced from just $29,990 +orc. This well specified model is now available and continues to deliver class-leading driver comfort, easy load access height and is super proficient for inner city deliveries where a larger van is just not required, much like the rest of the Caddy range.
All new engine and design
No matter what industry you work in, the new Caddy always exudes a high degree of competence and dependability. It features an all new generation TSI engine with similar power and torque as the previous model TDI (92kw/220Nm) along with fuel consumption from 5.6L/100kms combined. It’s styling features sharper and clearer lines, a more dynamic front, and redesigned tailgate. Further highlights include the chrome trim strip on the radiator grille, the striking headlights and optional alloy wheels.
Load compartment and payload
For efficient use of load space, choose between 3.2 m3 cubic capacity in the Caddy or 4.2 m3 in the Caddy Maxi so you’re not stuck driving a half-empty larger van. Payload is class leading - with an optional upgrade in the Caddy Maxi to allow for a 1,005kg load carrying capacity (only 75kg less than the Hiace), while braked towing capacity allows up to 1,500kg. Rear load access is via the tailgate or sliding side doors - single left slider on Caddy, left and right on Caddy Maxi as standard.
Hop in, hop out. Load, unload.
The doors of a commercial vehicle are opened and closed repeatedly over the course of a working day – and heavily strained in the process. That is why the new Caddy is built with hinges, rails and handles that are equal to the most demanding conditions. The low front cabin entry position (built on a Golf platform) and loading sill height allow for easy access for both driver and equipment, while the rear tailgate is equipped with a soft touch open and close function for additional comfort.
The new Caddy offers you the support you need, with a storage system made up of several storage compartments and surfaces of varying sizes. Take, for instance, the roof shelf, which extends across the full width of the vehicle. The storage pockets in the doors can hold a 1-litre bottle each, while the centre console is equipped with four cup holders and there’s even storage space under each front seat. For the first time, two open glove compartments are also included.
Caddy Mobility | Factory Approved rear wheelchair ramp
One of the most important features of the Caddy is the large dimensions of the rear opening. This has proved to be a real advantage for people looking at conversions. In particular, the Caddy is becoming increasingly popular for the transportation of passengers who require a wheelchair. Access is easy via a gently sloping ramp and the wheelchair sits in a secure space with minimal room for unwanted movement.
