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.”
