It’s probably a good time for VW to be focusing on its environmental credentials.
The firm has just announced that Caddy vans are now available with two additional Euro 6 engines, a 2.0 TDI 75PS and 2.0 TDI 150PS. These are in addition to the original Euro 6 choice of a 102PS engine.
The Euro 5 models will continue to be available, but the Euro 6 engines will be offered at the same price as their Euro 5 equivalents until the end of 2015, making them a more sensible choice for forward-looking operators with an eye to resale value and eco-credentials.
All Euro 6 models have BlueMotion Technology as standard, giving the customer low rolling resistance tyres, start/stop system, hill hold assist and regenerative braking at no extra cost.
The new engines will be available across the Caddy range at all three trim levels (Startline, Trendline and Highline — see here for prices and specs) with the exception of the 75PS model, which won’t be offered on the long wheelbase Caddy Maxi.
