Volkswagen Caddy Alltrack revealed
VW Caddy Alltrack unveiled
The Volkswagen Caddy Alltrack has been unveiled ahead of its full debut at the 2015 Frankfurt motor show. Visually, the Caddy Alltrack features black wheel arch extensions, black out side sills, chromed grille, roof rails, fog lights, smoked tail-lights, 17-inch alloy wheels and new front and rear bumpers with bash plate style elements.
On the inside, the Caddy Alltrack features leather on the steering wheel, handbrake and around the gear lever. Oddly there's no mention of a raised or altered suspension setup.
The Caddy Alltrack is available in both van and passenger carrying versions. Vehicles equipped with rear seats and windows also include chrome highlights, faux aluminium pedals and special floor mats.
A range of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines are available on the latest Alltrack. For compression ignition buyers there's a 2.0-litre engine in one of four different states of tune, ranging from 55kW through to 110kW of power. On the spark ignition side of the ledger there's a 62kW 1.0-litre, a 1.2-litre and a 92kW 1.4-litre, as well as a 81kW version of the 1.4-litre that uses natural gas.
Depending on the engine, five- and six-speed manual transmissions, as well as six- and seven-speed dual-clutch gearboxes, are available. All-wheel drive is also present on the options list.
Hill start assistance is standard on all Caddy Alltrack models, while passenger carrying variants are also equipped with air conditioning, a speed limiter, and a 5.0-inch Composition Colour touchscreen infotainment system.
In Europe, the new Caddy Alltrack replaces the Cross Caddy, which was on the previous-generation Caddy. Sales of the new Caddy Alltrack begin in late 2015 across Europe.
