Performance & drive

What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is

The Volkswagen Caddy MPV comes with either a 112bhp 1.5-litre petrol engine, or a 2.0-litre diesel with 101bhp or 120bhp. They're all available with a six-speed manual gearbox, but if you go for the petrol or the most powerful diesel, you can select a seven-speed double-clutch automatic instead.

We’ve driven the 120bhp 2.0-litre diesel with the auto gearbox. Once you’ve got over the 'box’s hesitancy to get going, progress is reasonably brisk, with enough low-down shove to make accelerating up to the limit easy. It's no ball of fire, though – 0-62mph takes 11.8sec, and there are plenty of faster MPVs.
