VW Rolls Out New Cross Caddy

Commerical Vehicle

VW Commercial Vehicles applies the Cross treatment to the new Caddy van.

Crossover are all the rage these days, but one step below that sits a wide range of cars given a pseudo-off-road treatment. Subaru calls its line Outback, Audi the Allroad and Volkswagen has the Cross range. The treatment has already been applied to the Polo, Golf and Touran van, but now Volkswagen's commercial vehicles division has done the same with the Caddy delivery van. The Cross Caddy starts with the Caddy Edition 30 and upgrades with a series of enhancements, starting with 17-inch Canyon wheels.

Black wheel arches, side sills and lower bumpers, undercarriage guard plates, tinted windows and rear lamps, silver roof rails and gloss-black, silver-rimmed air vents all feature in the soft-roader vanlet. The interior benefits from two-tone trim and leather steering wheel with contrasting stitching. Buyers can specify between seven- or five-passenger versions with a range of TSI, TDI, natural gas or LPG engines ranging from 86 horsepower up to 170. Dual-clutch transmission and 4Motion all-wheel drive are also on offer, along with nine exterior color choices, including the Viper Green pictured here and borrowed from the Scirocco catalog.
