Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
Volkswagen vans are often thought of as being rather expensive, but the Caddy Cargo has a starting price comparable to similar-sized rivals. It’s also predicted to hold on to its value well, with depreciation expected to be slower than for the equivalent Ford Transit Connect, Peugeot Partner, Toyota Proace City or Vauxhall Combo Cargo.
In terms of available trims, you have three to choose from: entry-level Commerce, Commerce Plus and Commerce Pro. We rate the Commerce Plus trim as the best-value option, because it gets some genuinely useful options over the sparsely equipped Commerce, including climate control, rear parking sensors, storage compartments under the seats, an armrest for the driver’s seat and a leather-trimmed multi-function steering wheel.
