With the Australian car market more crowded than almost anywhere in the
world, the latest game for car makers seems to be re-inventing market
segments, the latest to do so is Volkswagen with the Caddy Maxi, which
apparently re-invents the small van segment.
The VW Caddy Maxi is a stretch version of the market segment leading Caddy
small van, which the German manufacturer says is aimed at "tradesmen,
courier services and service providers requiring a very high load capacity
in a compact van".
Compared to the regular Caddy, the Maxi has been stretched from 4.41 metres
to 4.88 metres by adding 320mm to the existing model's wheelbase of 2682mm
and extending the rear overhang by 150mm.
This has created an extremely spacious vehicle with up to 4200 litres, up
from 3200 litres, of stowage volume, and makes the Caddy Maxi one of the
largest models among the compact vans and small transporters available.
With a load capacity of up to 4.2 m3, an 810-kilogram payload, up to
1500-kilogram trailer load and load area up to 2250 millimetres long,
depending on the interior configuration -- these are all record figures in
There are three powertrain combinations on offer; a 75kw/148Nm 1.6-litre
petrol engine with a five-speed manual gearbox, and a 1.9-litre turbo diesel engine with either the five-speed
manual or VW's unique six-speed DSG, manual/auto gearbox.
Most frugal of all is the manual TDI, which returns an official combined
ADR, figure of just 6.1L/100km and as CarAdvice has already spent a few
days at the wheel of the Caddy Maxi we can confirm that figure is entirely
Of course load the van to its maximum and the figure will rise, but should
still provide any commercial operator with a very sound financial argument
for going diesel.
The TDI also gets a few more goodies than the petrol, for some reason that
cannot really be explained cruise control is standard on the diesel but an
option or the petrol, at a cost of $495.
Among the standard equipment are dual sliding doors, driver and front
passenger airbags, semi automatic 'Climatic' air conditioning, height
adjustable driver and front passenger seats and heat reflective glass.
Caddy Maxi comes with ABS braking, plus traction control and engine braking
control (EBC) as standard, while electronic stability program (ESP) is
offered as a $650 option, which also comes with a brake assist system and
trailer stabilisation (when chosen with a tow hitch).
VW says a major factor in the great success of the Caddy is its functional
and comfortable design. For this reason, the interior concept has been
passed on, unchanged into the Caddy Maxi.Driving the Caddy Maxi in its
natural environment, that's around the city on freeways and even into an
industrial area to load it up with cargo shows that it is a vehicle that
The dual sliding doors mean access in a loading area is not restricted to
one, possibly dangerous side, and the rear barn doors, which can be
exchanged at no cost for a tailgate, open to 180 degrees, allowing the rear
cargo space to accept a full Australian pallet.This may not mean much to
many but European pallets are a smaller size to Australia pallets and it's
often the case that Euro LCVs won't accept the more substantial "aussie"
Driving the Caddy Maxi, like the regular Caddy, is a very car like
experience; sure the rearward visibility is limited but the underpinnings
and pretty much everything from the A-pillar forward is straight from the
In fact, looking forward, I had to keep reminding myself that there was a
bit more behind me than your average Golf hatchback!
4 Jet Car Drag Race
Under the definition of "awesome" should be a picture of 4-jet cars racing!
NMRA/NMCA All Star Nationals at ZMax Dragway in Charlotte, NC ended the
night by lighting up ZMax's 4 drag lanes with the fire and the thunder of 4
jet turbine drag cars creating an estimated 24,000 HP on one track! The
Embry Riddle dragster takes off and runs a 5-second quarter.
