Volkswagen Caravelle and Caddy Announced with New GTI Petrol Engines

We are used to seeing most of the vans sporting powerful diesel engines, but Volkswagen Group has decided to make a switch, announcing that at least the future Caravelle van would come with a petrol engine lineup.

The announcement was made public and the Caravelle will come with a 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged petrol mill in the Caravelly SE short wheelbase, with two power configurations, like 150 horsepower and 204 horsepower, both hooked to a standard six-speed manual or an optional seven-speed DSG automatic. The version will cost 28,950 GBP, the equivalent of $43,813.

On the other hand, the Volkswagen Caddy panel van and Caddy Life will also receive three petrol burners, like the 1.2-liter Euro 6 engine, with 84 horsepower and five-speed manual, the 1.0-liter with 102 horsepower and the same five-speed transmission, as well as the higher 1.4-liter engine with 125 horsepower and a standard six-speed manual, or an optional seven-speed DSG.

The Volkswagen Caddy will come with three trims, like the Startline, Trendline and Highline, along with the Maxi wheelbase. Prices start from 13,610 GBP or $20,602 for the Caddy panel van, while the Caddy Life model range will set you back from 15,110 GBP or $22,873.
