Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The entry-level Volkswagen Caddy isn’t as affordable as you might expect. The seven-seat Dacia Jogger undercuts the Caddy by a huge amount if you compare like for like versions. Indeed, if you go for our preferred Life trim, it’s more expensive than our MPV of the Year – the Volkswagen Touran.

Fuel economy and emissions are respectable for this type of vehicle, with the petrol besting 40mpg and the diesels getting into the mid-50s mpg.

Overview

The Volkswagen Caddy MPV has an excellent safety rating and is decent to drive, but it's very expensive considering how poor the interior is. Performance and refinement are worse than the similarly priced VW Touran too.

  • Five-star NCAP rating beats other MPVs
  • Pleasant to drive
  • Better warranty than most rivals
  • Low-rent interior
  • Rivals have better rear seat space
  • Very expensive
