Year of manufactureFrom 2010

The old dimensions have remained. One would speak of a facelift, if there were not added a maxi version with 32.5 centimetres more wheelbase. In the Maxi now has extra luggage with 3,880 compared to 3,030 litres more space. The Maxi can be recognized good from outside because the rear window is longer than the middle. The two base petrol and diesel engines are not available in the Maxi.

The petrol engines are from 1.4 respectively 1.6 litres to 1.2 litres successfully downsized, so have more power and torque now and nevertheless significantly less CO2 emissions. The two-litre diesel were complemented downwards with the 1.6 litre and up with stronger versions. Only diesel engines are to combine with the dual clutch gearbox with 7-speed, two two-litres also with all-wheel drive.

So there is now additional a wide variety of combination possibilities. Only car and natural gas engines have remained. The simplest version has increased about 70 kilograms of weight, which is not fully compensated by higher allowable gross weight. But when Maxi are now partly possible more than 800 kg payload.

The surcharge for the Maxi version varies between 1,700 and nearly 2,000 euros. For seven seats are to add once again some 400 euros. You should have to consider whether you really need the higher-grade version. Almost 2,000 euros are due for DSG, nearly 2,500 for four-wheel (4MOTION). BlueMotion technology is cheaper with approx. 600 euro. Overall, it seems to be useful to wait for one of the many promotions as done in the past.

The reading of prospectuses was rarely made so difficult for consumers as with the indication of weights of the Caddy. Would one be maliciously, one would speak of obfuscation by too much information. The least important thing first: The all-wheel drive weighs only 85 kg more, which in view of complete conversion of the rigid rear axle, two-piece propshaft, Haldex clutch, reinforced body and complicated tank is really an achievement.

At the (simplest) Startline equipment can easily be seen the with 67 kg likewise little extra weight of the Maxi. The difference between Star and Trendline with 48 kg, however, surprising. Also why there are available bumpers varnished in body colour, varnished and unvarnished. No wonder that even experienced car salesmen often no longer have an overview.

Allow one last advice to the tables with the weights. The weakest respective gasoline and diesel engine is indicated with particularly low payload at actually lowest kerb weight. This can be seen as a disadvantage. But it could be an advantage in terms of driving comfort.Here a test drive doubly worthwhile, if one does not really need the high payload.

Natural gas tank: 26 kg, when Maxi 37 kg ...

Only for someone who travels a lot, recoups relatively quick the supplement for the natural gas version (even approx. € 1,500 compared to corresponding diesel). At the time of presentation of this Caddy you can expect approximately halving of the fuel costs compared with petrol operation. Good thing that the engine is optimized quasi monovalent e.g. by a high compression ratio. Interestingly, that the is compensated only by changing the ignition and throttle valve control in petrol mode. 12/14
