Volkswagen Unveils All-New Caddy Alltrack with Rugged Looks and 4Motion AWD

Interesting things always come out right before the Frankfurt Motor Show. This year is no exception, as Volkswagen has just unveiled the Caddy Alltrack. It's a go-anywhere van that makes sense the more you look at its rugged design.

A couple of months ago, we tested its affordable cousin, the Dacia Dokker Stepway. That van made us realize that small construction teams need a maneuverable, tough car that can still transport the EUR-pallet. Now, Volkswagen's champion makes its debut, bringing a lot more refinement and class.

The Caddy Alltrack, available as both a passenger car and panel van, is distinguished by a rugged array of body parts. These include black trim for the wheel arches, skid plates at the front and back plus a new set of bumpers. Also new are the 17-inch Quito alloy wheels and Mojave Beige Metallic paint. You can also now order the Viper Green paint that Volkswagen launched with the Scirocco coupe.

Standard equipment now includes H7 twin halogen front lights, fog lights, smoked taillights and three chrome strips for the front upper grille.

The interior makes the Dokker Stepway look like a prehistoric cave. It comes with 7Summits seat covers and a sober array of soft plastics. The infotainment system and steering wheel might trick you into thinking you are driving the award-winning Golf.

The Caddy Alltrack will be available with all kinds of engines, depending on your needs. The TSI petrols range in output from 84 to 125 PS, while the diesels include everything from the 1.4 TDI with 75 PS to the 2.0 TDI rated at 150 PS. This last one even has 4Motion all-wheel drive at its disposal. Finally, VW also includes the 1.4 TGI, which is a turbocharged mill that can run on cheaper natural gas and produces 110 PS. Don't like changing gears? That's not a problem, since 6- or 7-speed DSG units are available, depending on your engine choice.

Prices for the Caddy Alltrack will start at €19,617 in German for the van or €24,359 with passenger seats. Orders will begin being taken after Frankfurt.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
