Volkswagen Caddy 4MOTION/DSG
23rd November, 2010
The new Caddy and Caddy Maxi, with a combination of 4MOTION and
dual clutch gearbox (DSG), are now available in Europe. This match of maximum traction with absolute shifting
comfort – without loss of power – in the compact van and urban delivery van segment puts the versatile Caddy at
the top of its class in terms of meeting and exceeding the challenges posed by difficult driving conditions and
special transport requirements.
Driven by the most powerful TDI engine, this multi-functional Caddy can hardly be stopped – its 4MOTION
all-wheel drive and dual clutch gearbox, in combination with the most powerful diesel engine torque, ensure
outstanding driving safety, traction and handling even in severe weather conditions and mountainous terrain.
The 2.0 litre four-valve turbo diesel engine generates 103 kW (140 PS) and develops its maximum torque of 320
newton metres between 1,500 and 2,500 rpm. This Caddy accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 10.5 seconds and
boasts a maximum speed of 183 km/h.
The Caddy, which is renowned for combining this powerful, high-torque engine with the 6-speed DSG gearbox,
has now been enhanced by permanent 4MOTION all-wheel drive. The fourth-generation, electronically controlled
Haldex coupling ensures reliably sure traction for all four wheels – regardless of whether you are
transporting cargo weighing as much as 700 kilogrammes to remote locations or have to tow a trailer through
wet fields or other difficult off-road areas, to name just a few examples.
The Caddy 4MOTION with DSG is available – whether with a short wheelbase or a long wheelbase as for the
Caddy Maxi – in a commercial panel van or Kombi (combined passenger/cargo van), as well as in the higher end
Caddy versions of Trendline, Comfortline, and the premium Comfortline Edition. So, there is a sure-footed,
dynamic and spacious version of the Caddy available for every transport need and for all weather conditions.
All versions of the Caddy 4MOTION include ESP and "hill hold assist" as standard equipment.
The Caddy 2.0 TDI 4MOTION with DSG can be ordered immediately. After the Caddy 4MOTION with 81 kW (110 PS) and
six-speed manual gearbox, there is now a second all-wheel version of the Caddy available.
Following the initial introduction of all-wheel drive in the Caddy two years ago, the Caddy 4MOTION has become
established on the European market – particularly in the alpine regions. For example, every fourth Caddy sold in
Austria is a Caddy 4MOTION. The Caddy is the only compact van or urban delivery van which can be ordered with
all-wheel drive from the factory.
