Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has revealed its fourth generation Caddy and the new model will go on sale in the UK in the second half of the year.

The new model will come with a selection of Euro6 and Euro5 2.0-litre diesel engines with power ranging from 75hp to 150hp. While final UK specifications and efficiency figures are not available, VW is expecting the Caddy Bluemotion to return over 70mpg. The most efficient Caddy currently on sale is the 119g/km 1.6-litre diesel Bluetmotion.

The Caddy will come with city emergency braking, multi-collision brake as standard, as well as side and curtain airbags. Optional extras include a driver alert system which prompts the driver to take a break and a heated windscreen to help clear ice and de-mist.

The Caddy will also be available with adaptive cruise control for the first time and when paired with a DSG gear-box, can slow the vehicle down in queues of traffic to a complete stop. Van drivers will also be able to spec a reversing camera, satellite navigation and an assisted parallel and reverse-bay parking system.

UK specifications and pricing will be announced closer to launch towards the end of this year.
