The Volkswagen Caddy is a compact commercial van that fits into Europe's A segment, and the fifth generation is on the way. Two new teaser images provide what seems like a very realistic depiction of how the little carry-all looks, unlike the previous look. The new model debuts in February and should be on sale in some markets before the end of the year.
The teaser renderings show the Caddy with a wide inlet in the lower fascia and a tinier inlet above it. Similarly, the trim makes the headlights appear to stretch across the front of the vehicle. The images don't provide a good view of the back, but it's clear that the taillights rise vertically up the rear. While only barely visible here, there's a panoramic sunroof to provide more light into the cabin.
The model will be available as the standard Caddy as a tiny van for carrying people or the Caddy Cargo for hauling goods. Buyers will be able to select between two wheelbase lengths.
VW notes claims "no screw has been left untouched" for the new Caddy. The company intends to offer the van with new driver assistance systems. Inside, the model gains functionality to connect to the Internet.
The Caddy rides on Volkswagen Group's familiar MQB platform, and this should translate to a wide variety of available powertrain options. Like with the current model, don't look for VW to sell the little van in the United States. The German brand just isn't a serious player in the country's commercial vehicle market.
