Caddy4 with many talents.


On October 1, 2020

Maintenance Costs R 0.00 / Year

Insurance Premium Value R 0.00 / Month

Fuel Consumption 8 L/100km

But what is it? Introduced in our market in November year 2015 as part of Volkswagen Passenger Versatile car which extends to crew bus,AllTrack and panel van, within the family of Volkswagen Commercial vehicles with Crafter, Caravelle and Transporter.

Enter the fourth Generation Caddy, but why when there’s a Fifth generation Caddy in European market you ask? Let me explain ,in November 2018 Volkswagen introduced 1.0TSI 3 cylinder engine similar to the one found in 6th generation Polo and T-Cross, the 1.0TSI recently made its design way to testing fleet portfolio hence we having this conversation now.

The engine was added to supplement the 1.6L petrol and 2.0TDI engines and it specifically joins the 2.0TDI engine in the Caddy trendline range, it’s a peppy engine with 75KW of power and 175NM of torque, mated to a five speed smooth shifting and engaging gearbox.

On the outside you greeted with Bi-Xenon headlamps incorporated with separate LED Daylight running lights and halogen fog lights with cornering lights and “smoked” tail lights on the rear , black roof rails and 16 inch Bendigo alloy wheels provides sportiness.

The inside is a familiar place with the Polo like multi-functional leather steering wheel, not that it’s a bad thing as the Caddy started it’s life Looking like a Polo and like the first generation Golf that it was based on and hence the name Caddy derived from Golf.

Anyway you can perform function like setting up cruise control, adjusting volume, navigating through the TFT screen on Analog instrumentation, prompting voice commands and answering calls wirelessly and there’s climate control for warming and cooling front and back seating personnel.


I would mention that the Apple CarPlay/ android auto is as standard , that makes you quit the bad and illegal habit of being the phone while driving, and the touchscreen composition media radio, you have functionality of USB port and up to four 12V socket outlets.

The Mirrors are electrically adjustable and heated and all windows are power assisted, the steering wheel is servotronic power assisted and speed sensitive and can be telescopic adjusted and the dashboard is finished in plastic aluminium look.

There’s functional pockets all around and even on the roof, the sliding doors makes it easy to to get in or out of the car adding versatility when with kids and family, the rear is very accommodating and high to an extent that I managed to fit in trash bin upright with Ease all thanks to the Caddy”s loading height of 1.2 Meters and with luggage space for days.

This unit is equipped with optional park assist package i which entailed a reverse camera, front and rear park distance control, park assist meaning that it can park itself, all you have to is to work the accelerometer and brakes and the car will take care of steering and fitted with Optional Removable tow-bar .


There’s a 3-seater bench (separately folding and removable) in 2nd row of seats with ISOFIX anchor and Pilion fabric seat trim covers and with decent legroom for a car that size, the front drive seat can be height adjusted.

Is it even safe? Well there’s:-
Anti-lock Braking System,
Automatic Post-collision Braking System,Electronic Stability Programme, Electronic Differential Lock,Traction Control System
and Hill-hold assist and with stop/start function to save the environment.


The fuel tank is big as 55 litres which Made me travel over 700km”s on a single tank at some stage I was reading a fuel range of 760km”s , impressive range for petrol engine powered car as these types of ranges are normally found on Diesel engine equipped cars.

But how does it drive? If you ever driven a Polo you will be familiar with this well sorted ride quality and the suspension handles the bump tarmac with ease , it’s agile and fun when chucking it on twisties due to its power to weight ratio, it’s a very honest car and never tries to be something it’s not, the Caddy offers a planted and composed feel on bitumen.


It handled the city driving as well as uphills of the back roads with aplomb , a surprisingly Enjoyable drive that makes you navigate the city with not much worry, one thing I’m not fond of is the halogen lights, they make this cool car age! However the rear makes out for that and brings a sense of cool and beaut, and also the 360 degrees park distance sensors are to sensitive and scream even far from hazardous area while entering confined spaces. .

However it doesn’t matter what I say now as this is the last of the 4th Generation Caddy and Caddy 5 arriving in 2021 in our shores, for now while we wait I say this is versatile family buy and dealerships might have huge discount offerings to clear the stock which will benefit the customer in getting a Caddy at a well negotiated price!!


Second best selling Volkswagen Commercial vehicle with over 42 years young , I doubt you can really go wrong and the Caddy is one of the effortlessly cool vehicles from Volkswagen, practical and comfortable and should be high in your shortlist buys, infact go buy it when looking for one if you can’t wait for the Caddy 5.
