Caddy back in black with new special edition model
AC/DC were back in black, and so too is the Volkwagen Caddy, as VW is to extend the production of its Caddy Black Edition due to popular demand. Sales first began on 1 October 2014 but will now continue until 31 March 2015.
The specification includes body-coloured bumpers, mirrors and door handles, fog lights, rear parking sensors, climatic air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth phone connectivity with trip computer and multi-function display. Unsurprisingly it also gets Black Pearlescent paint, black polished 17-inch alloy wheels and silver roof rails and radiator grille surround. VW has also lowered the ride height by 27mm.
The Black Edition is available in short-wheelbase panel van form only and is powered by the 100hp version of the 1.6-litre TDI common rail direct injection engine.
Based on the Highline specification, the UK special edition includes £2,150 of additional equipment, representing a saving of £1,515 for the £17,860 van.
