A sketch giving us a good look at the next-generation Volkswagen Caddy has been revealed.

While the car's overall shape and styling should stay true to this sketch, there are some elements with concept car stamped over them, such as the large alloy wheels, exceptionally low-profile tyres, hidden door handles, and wing mirror location.

The bumper designs and aggressive side sill could go into production, although they will likely be reserved for an off-road themed variant.

With its new wraparound windscreen design, tear-drop headlight extensions, and L-shaped taillights, the next-generation Caddy should have more visual personality before, while retaining its space efficient silhouette.

Under the skin, the new Caddy is expected to use Volkswagen's now ubiquitous MQB architecture for front- and all-wheel drive vehicles.

The new underpinning should make ensure the new car is stiffer and lighter than before. It will also mean the Caddy can be fitted with all the latest safety and infotainment components, as well as 48V mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid drivetrains.

As we've seen in the most recent spy photos, the next-generation Caddy will have a wide touchscreen infotainment unit mounted high on the dashboard and angled towards the driver.

The van will be available as either a van with barn doors at the rear, or a people mover with rear windows and a lift-up tailgate. Two body lengths are expected to be offered.
