Volkswagen Caddy gets extra kit with sporty Black Edition

Volkswagen has revealed another Black Edition version of its Caddy, offering exclusive touches and extra kit at a premium

Blacked-out limited edition cars seem to be on the rise at the moment, and Volkswagen is the latest manufacturer to get in on the act, revealing a Black Edition Caddy. It’ll go on sale at the end of November, costing £19,370 before VAT.

The Caddy is of course not a car but a van, so what we’re looking at here is a high specification, limited production run version of VW’s smallest commercial vehicle.

Volkswagen has done Black Edition versions of its Caddy before, and just like the previous generation version, this is a van hyped up for offering generous levels of kit and equipment for less than it would cost to spec on a standard model.

After VAT, the Black edition Caddy commands a £800 premium over the starting price of the Highline – the current range topper – but VW says the equipment list and exclusive touches on the Black Edition would otherwise cost an extra £2,000.

On the outside, the Caddy gets an exclusive lick of Deep Black pearlescent paint, as well as black roof rails, colour coded bumpers and mirrors, 17-inch two-tone black and silver alloy wheels, plus lowered suspension – the Caddy Black is dropped by 27mm to appear sportier. 

In the cabin you’ll find full carpeting, a leather multi-function steering wheel and gearknob, air conditioning and a heated windscreen. Cruise control, a DAB+ radio, and VW’s Driver Alert System – a safety feature that detects if tiredness is affecting your driving – are all standard too.

It gets a 2.0-litre four-cylinder TDI diesel engine with 101bhp, which Volkswagen claims returns 60.1mpg on a combined cycle, with CO2 emissions of 123g/km. Space in the back remains at 3,200-litres, with a maximum payload of 628kg.

Volkswagen says its special edition vans are always popular, but has plans to make only 500 Black Edition Caddy.

Do limited edition, premium edged vans make sense? Let us know below...
