THE city van segment is not a person a large amount of individuals consider about, so it may perhaps arrive as a shock to lots of that in 2019, Volkswagen’s Caddy unquestionably dominated in Australia with 70 per cent of sales, in some cases higher in the a long time before that.
Renault closed the gap in 2020 and 2021 but the world has gone mad, so that may perhaps be a blip.
Potentially in an work to confirm that it was just a blip, the fifth era of the Caddy arrived in Australia in August. Presented Australia went particularly mad during that time, it’s only now that we have experienced the likelihood to push the all-new device in equally Cargo and individuals mover versions.
The major information for the Caddy five, as it’s identified, is the shift to the VW Group’s MQB system. Rather a great deal each individual entrance-wheel push car in that massive team is created on MQB, which is intended for transverse engines.
A simple consequence of this is a ten years or so of continual enhancement and a wonderful offer of know-how close to what can be performed.
Building a practically five-metre-extensive industrial van is a reasonable thing to do presented the price personal savings, components availability and compatibility, as well as the actuality it really should be a great deal easier to make it great to push.
So has Volkswagen succeeded in generating its Caddy additional car-like and, additional importantly, is it excellent enough to reclaim the sales crown from its French rivals?
