Volkswagen's little van gets a metro makeover.

Volkswagen has just launched an upmarket alternative to its bread-and-butter Caddy offering, in the form of the Urban Edition.

Limited to 70 units, the $36,990 (drive-away) Caddy Urban Edition brings with it some tech and styling that’s aimed squarely at inner-city small-to-medium enterprises.

It’s based on the TSI220 Caddy Maxi, driven by a 92kW, 220Nm 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine matched to seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission. Fuel consumption is rated at 6.0L/100km on the combined cycle.

The Urban Edition adds more equipment in the way of a 6.3 inch infotainment system with app connectivity, 16-inch alloy wheels, upgraded headlights with separate LED daytime running lights, and front fog lights.

This healthy dose of equipment is bundled on top of the regular Caddy Maxi’s standard features, which includes rear barn doors, rear park sensors, city autonomous emergency braking and driver fatigue detection

"Times are incredibly tough for all businesses right now, but many of them cannot afford to stop. The Caddy Urban Edition takes some of our most popular and practical features and adds them to an already compelling package," says Ryan Davies, Director for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Australia.

"We've priced these 70 units as a turnkey solution, and to offer businesses great value for money," he adds.

On top of the compelling product offering, Volkswagen have also placed the van on campaign to sweeten the deal.

The Caddy Urban Edition is available to order at all Volkswagen dealers, who are remaining open during the COVID-19 pandemic.
