VW releases 'teaser' images ahead of new Caddy van launch
Ahead of the launch of the new Caddy small van, Volkswagen has released images of early visuals, which it says some of the elements will appear in the final design.
Publishing the initial sketches is part of VW's marketing to create a 'buzz' ahead of the new Caddy's world premiere in February 2020.
VW says the new Caddy will be "Dynamic, confident, sporty and yet practical" and that the "new generation is going to be very different, yet fulfils all familiar demands."
While the radical look will not be carried over the final design, the new Caddy is intended to shake up the sector and target a growing number of customers using their vehicles for active leisure pursuits.
The Caddy – which will also be offered in the Caddy Life passenger car variant – will bring more sporty styling but will still offer claimed high cargo capacity and great variability, according to VW.
Volkswagen adds that the sketches show elements that will be carried over to the production vehicles.
These include the more strongly vertically arranged, slim LED lights at the rear on the panel van, which will also appear on the passenger car version. The concept vehicle drawings also show a larger looking rear window for the passenger car variant.
In line with customer feedback, commercial versions will also have a non-transparent tailgate and continue to offer swing doors as an option.
Other features include larger wheels, a narrower radiator grille and a larger looking logo.
Further details, including engine line-up, will be announced closer to its unveiling in February.
