More recognition for Volkswagen commercial vehicles

The Volkswagen Caddy and its new, larger sibling the Caddy Maxi received some good news at the UK-based What Van? Vans of the Year Awards 2008. This comes on top of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles celebrating the Transporter winning the Best Medium Van award at the inaugural Fleet Van Awards.

The What Van? Awards 2008 gave the new Caddy Maxi the prestigious editor’s choice award, while the Caddy was highly commended in the light van of the year category against the trio of new small vans from the PSA group.

The Caddy Maxi was launched earlier this year and joined the Volkswagen van range between the Caddy and Transporter models, offering a load volume of 4.2m, and a payload of up to 800kg.

By comparison, the compact Caddy offers 3.2m of loadspace and up to 724kg of payload.

Commenting on the award for the Caddy Maxi, What Van? said: "Volkswagen’s solidly constructed Caddy Maxi van offers fans of the standard Caddy who need a bit more cargo space exactly what they are looking for. Out on the road the 2.0-litre TDI PD engine Caddy in particular packs plenty of punch, but whatever engine you pick you’ll get a van with VW’s usual precise gearchange."
