The Volkswagen Caddy van and people-mover range now comes with forward collision warning and low-speed autonomous emergency braking (AEB) as standard – an Australian-first for vehicles of its type.
Available to order now, the safety technology is obtainable on all Caddy panel vans, Crewvans and people movers, for a small price rise of $400.
Carlos Santos, Volkswagen Australia’s director of commercial vehicles, said: “No competitor can offer this technology as an option let alone as standard”.
“This is hugely relevant for a vehicle driven mainly in traffic-dense urban environments where most accidents are low-speed impacts – the sport of accidents that Forward Collision Warning and City Emergency Braking help prevent.”
The 2017 Volkswagen Caddy range kicks off at $28,950 plus on-road costs for the Maxi Van TSI220 manual.
