The 2011 Volkswagen Caddy Maxi 4MOTION has been launched at the 2011 Australian International Motor Show in Melbourne.

Volkswagen’s 4MOTION all-wheel drive system will be available in the range-topping 320TDI variants of the Caddy Maxi Van (light commercial) and Caddy Maxi Life (seven-seat people mover) ranges. (The Maxi is the long wheelbase variant.)

The 4MOTION system adds $3500 to the price of each model.

Both are powered by the 103kW/320Nm 2.0-litre diesel engine and are teamed with a six-speed dual-clutch DSG transmission. Combined cycle fuel consumption is 6.7 litres/100km in the Van and 6.8 litres/100km in the Life – both up from 6.3 litres/100km for the respective front-wheel drive variants.

The Caddy Maxi Life 4MOTION is equipped with dual-zone climate control; cruise control; leather steering wheel; automatic headlights, wipers and dimming rear view mirror; roof rails; 16-inch alloy wheels; and tinted rear windows.
