Leasing a Volkswagen Caddy Maxi Life
Engines and performance for the Volkswagen Caddy Maxi
The Volkswagen Caddy Maxi Life has either an excellent 2.0 litre diesel engine producing 101 bhp or a 1.2 litre petrol engine. The engines are mated to either five-speed manual gearbox that is easy to live with or a six-speed automatic transmission for the diesel offering. Even when the car is full of people, the diesel engine will return more than 50 mpg.
Equipment and handling
The big difference between the Volkswagen Caddy Maxi Life and its sibling, the Caddy life, is length. This practical MPV is half a metre longer and comes with seven seats arranged in three rows. The back row can be easily removed to create a larger boot, which is 340 litres in size. And while it is based on a van platform, the driving experience is pleasant and it's a good performer around town. The suspension deals with potholes and there's little in the way of body roll when cornering at speed. There's also a decent list of equipment including air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity and DAB. The bottom line is that the Caddy Maxi life has been designed for practical everyday use so there are design features such as load lashing rings and storage nets that owners may particularly enjoy. There are some options for the model including larger alloy wheels, a bigger infotainment scream with satnav and also parking sensors and heated seats. There's no doubt that the Volkswagen Caddy Maxi Life has been designed as a vehicle to shuttle family members around easily, but it's also a great choice for those who go adventuring and need the space and comfort levels. This is also an easy car to get in and out of thanks to the twin sliding rear doors - a boon in tight car park spaces - and the rear hinged boot door provides shelter in the rain. Safety features include electronic stability control, post-collision braking and hill hold assist. Options include autonomous emergency braking and adaptive cruise control. Essentially, for those that need to carry seven people in comfort, the Volkswagen Caddy Maxi Life is a sound choice and it is a practical offering that should meet most people's needs.
