Work and play with Crewvan
WORK and play is no longer confined to the dual cab ute market.
Volkswagen has added the Caddy Maxi Crewvan to its commercial vehicle range, which adds a three-seater in the back.
The split-fold seat can also be removed to increase the load capability from 1.6m3 to 4.1m3.
Pricing is $1500 more than the standard Maxi Van, with retail prices starting from $29,490 for the five-speed manual or $32,490 for the seven-speed dual clutch automatic.
VW made the decision following dealership feedback, with buyers getting after-market bench seats fitted for about $3000.
Maximum load length is 2.25m (with seats removed) and payload is 709kg (manual) courtesy of new 16-inch wheels.
Rear barn doors are standard equipment but a tailgate is available as a no-cost option.
Under the bonnet is a 75kW 1.6-litre turbo diesel which generating 250Nm of torque.
Average fuel consumption is claimed at 5.9 litres/100km (CO2 155g/km) for both the manual and DSG versions.

• 3-seater bench (fold/tumble/removable) as 2nd
row of seats
