Four reasons why these LCVs are perfect for your business.
The boys are back in town and this time they mean business. Launched earlier this month, the new Caddy and new Transporter join the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle range. But what’s new with these durable light commercial vehicles (LCV)?
Firstly, fuel-efficiency on every journey.
These powerhouse LCVs now boast improved fuel efficiency thanks to their new 2.0-litre TDI engines, compliant with Euro 6 emission standards. The new Caddy has an increased fuel-efficiency of 12%, while the new Transporter is 28% more fuel efficient than its predecessors. This could mean up to $2,500 worth of savings in fuel costs over five years, based on a distance travelled of 40,000 km per year.
These improvements were made possible by the new AdBlue® technology found in both models. A water/urea based operating fluid, AdBlue® helps reduce polluting nitrogen oxides through the SCR process. What’s more, topping up of AdBlue® is also free during the warranty period of 5 years or at a maximum mileage of 200,000 km (whichever comes first).

Secondly, space for every need.
As your business grows, so too does your need for space – of which these LCVs have plenty. With class-leading compartment volumes, the new Caddy comes with a wheelbase of 2,682 mm, while the Caddy Maxi has an extended wheelbase of 3,006 mm. Carrying heavy equipment? You’ll be pleased to know that the new Caddy Maxi has an astounding load weight capacity of 786 kg!
Not to be outdone, the Transporter T30 offers the largest load compartment of its class with a load bed area 4.3 m² and cargo volume of 5.8 m³ – making it easy for handling and stowing bulky cargo. The better payload and bigger cargo area help maximise usage, save time and lower running costs in the long run.
Thirdly, tremendous comfort and safety.
When it comes to safety, these LCVs don’t mess around. Both the new Caddy and Transporter come armed with the Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP) and Automatic Post-Collision Braking System as standard, along with a host of other great features. These features help avoid crash situations and unnecessary repair costs. Like their predecessors, both also offer passenger car-like handling and comfort to keep your employees satisfied on the road.
Lastly, less workshop visits, more business trips.
In addition to low fuel consumption, all Volkswagen LCVs come with a 5-year or 200,000 km comprehensive warranty (whichever comes first): the highest in the industry. And with a servicing frequency of 20,000 km, this helps optimise usage and reduce downtime by cutting down on workshop visits and replacement vehicles, and preventing loss of use.
