2021 Volkswagen Caddy launches in Europe, Australian timing pushed out

The 2021 Volkswagen Caddy has been officially launched in Germany, with the all-new van and people mover expected to land in Australia in the middle of next year – a little later than the first-quarter timing expected when it was first revealed in February. The new Caddy is based on Volkswagen's latest MQB architecture, which also underpins the new 2021 Golf...

2020 VW Caddy Urban Edition on sale in Australia

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.

2020 Volkswagen Caddy revealed: Australian launch due early 2021

Volkswagen has unveiled the 2020 Caddy van and people mover, with underpinnings borrowed from the Golf and a high-tech new cabin.

That opens the door for it to feature higher-tech engines, driver assists, and cabin features...

2021 Volkswagen Caddy spied

Volkswagen's soon-to-be-revealed 2020 Caddy van has been spied during cold weather testing, ahead of its full debut in February. Although it's disguised with a heavy plastic cladding at the front end, we can see the new Caddy will have Golf-style headlamps linked with a slim grille. Expect to see an aggressive lower fascia, too, in keeping with a sketch revealed earlier this week...

2021 Volkswagen Caddy sketched more realistically

The next-generation Volkswagen Caddy has been teased again ahead of its debut in February. While the sketches issued by the company last month had a much more sporty front end with a wraparound windscreen, and slim headlights with teardrop extensions, the latest images supplied by Volkswagen paint a much more conservative — and likely more accurate — picture of the upcoming van...

2021 Volkswagen Caddy sketched out

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...

2021 Volkswagen Caddy interior spied

The next-generation Volkswagen Caddy has been spotted undergoing cold weather testing in northern Europe. Unlike the prototype cargo van spotted back in April, this vehicle is a people mover variant – as evidenced by the functional glass windows for the rear sliding doors and rear quarter panels. It also features a lift-up tailgate, as opposed to the load-lugging model's barn doors...

Volkswagen Caddy Beach axed as focus turns to T6.1 California

Volkswagen has sold out of the compact Caddy Beach camper introduced last year, and the model won't be renewed for 2020. Just 120 examples of the camper van made it to Australia, priced from $46,990 drive-away, featuring a fold-out bed, walk-through tent, two folding camp chairs, blockout curtains, and plenty of interior storage for weekends away...

Volkswagen could face record fine, Justice Foster blasts ACCC and VW

Volkswagen’s German head office could be hit with an even bigger fine than the proposed $75 million penalty – already the highest of its type in Australia – for “misleading or deceptive conduct” on diesel vehicles that cheated emissions tests. However, the outcome of the hearing and the total amount of the fine may not be known for months after Justice Foster reserved his decision in the Federal Court in Sydney today...
