The Volkswagen Caddy, by itself, isn’t really the kind of vehicle that draws attention. Now, when you add that ’Cross’ designation, it becomes a lot more interesting, especially to the off-road customer.

The model, which is based on the Caddy Edition 30, certainly looks the part of a Volkswagen, thanks to a profile that follows along the same lines of its family. But looks isn’t what sets the Cross Caddy apart because this bad boy is all about rugged functionality.

For starters, the vehicle comes with a protective armor - yup, protective armor! - on the lower areas of the front and rear bumper, the side sills, and the wheel arches. The undercarriage on the front and rear also have their own silver guards while the silver roof rails allow for extra luggage stowing. Finally, a choice of eight body colors, including the Viper Green in the photos, are available as are the new set of 17" alloy wheels.

Inside, the vehicle’s cabin surprisingly comes with a leather trim with grey stitching on various parts of the cabin, including the handbrake lever and the gear knob. We’re not sure why there’s leather on a vehicle that’s fixing to get stained from the off-road, but hey, it does add some semblance of luxury to it. The two-tone front seats are a nice touch and the choice of either five or seven seats gives customers a nice choice of seating options.

One of the good things about the Cross Caddy is the variety of engines it will carry, including TDI, TSI, LPG, and natural gas option. As far as output is concerned, customers can opt for something as subtle as 85 horsepower all the way up to 168 horsepower.

2016 Volkswagen Caddy

2016 Volkswagen Caddy

Volkswagen has just announced its fourth generation Caddy commercial and passenger van. Going on sale in March and hitting German dealerships in June, the updated van gets a host of design, safety, and mechanical upgrades for the 2016 model year.

Outwardly, the new look is apparent, picking up Volkswagen’s corporate design language. The twin-bar grille and classy headlights set stage for what is perhaps the best looking compact van on the global market. Inside, things have been upgraded as well. Taking after other VW products, the Caddy’s interior is simple yet elegant, getting small dashes of chrome to accent the otherwise black cabin.

Volkswagen is offering an impressive range of diesel and gasoline engine with horsepower numbers ranging from 74 up to 148. Both a manual and VW’s DSG transmissions are available.

Sadly, Volkswagen won’t likely be bringing the new 2016 Caddy to the U.S., though the compact van market is rather hot these days. With its graceful new looks and powerful yet efficient engines, the Caddy would likely give its competition a tough fight if it crossed the pond.
