The Volkswagen Caddy Black Edition is a limited edition high spec model of the notoriously popular reliable small van. Today at Vanman we got hands-on with one!

Introduction to the Volkswagen Caddy Black Edition

The Volkswagen Caddy is an excellent small van for everyday commuting and deliveries, available in three specs, the highest of which the Highline, includes: Climatic air conditioning, Thatcham category 1 immobiliser, lights and vision pack and front fog lights. The Black Edition however doesn’t stop there!

Features of the Volkswagen Caddy Black Edition

Available in one size (L1H1) and with a powerful 2.0 litre diesel engine and 5-speed manual gearbox, the Black Edition Caddy contains a whole host of extra features over and above top spec Highline models, whereas dimensions remain the same as more basic L1H1 models.

The cab

Inside the cab area of the Volkswagen Caddy Black Edition, you firstly find a multifunction steering wheel. What was also apparent was the luxury within the van, with leather and Alcantara seating being the perfect enhancement to a comfortable and prominent driving position. We also found a highly impressive DAB+ Digital radio with a built-in satellite navigation.

The load area

The load volume of the Volkswagen Caddy Black Edition remains at 3.2 cubic metres, whereas the load compartment and cab areas are kept separate with the help of a full-steel bulkhead. Our Black Edition came fitted with ply-lining, a very useful addition in maintaining the interior of the new van.

The Exterior

One the exterior the Black Edition really stands out! As the name probably gives away, the Black Edition is coloured by Deep Black pearlescent paint, but also stands out from the crowd with the addition of 17-inch luxury alloy wheels and silver roof rails to cater for extra tools.


We spent some time looking at the cosmetics of the new van, but how was it to drive? The answer is excellent.. The 2.0 litre diesel engine provided a smooth and refined drive, whereas 250Nm of torque is more than sufficient to travel a van full of cargo, a driver and 1 passenger. The Volkswagen Caddy Black Edition is also economical, comfortably delivering in excess of 50 miles to the gallon! The multi-function steering wheel in conjunction with significantly sized wing mirrors and a turning circle of 11.1 metres, made the Caddy Black Edition easily manoeuvrable around the busy streets surrounding Vanman HQ!
