Following in the footsteps of Kombi, Volkswagen has taken the wraps off a camper version of its Golf-based Caddy.

The Caddy Beach is based on the long-wheelbase Caddy Maxi Trendline with exclusive features for tackling the outdoors in comfort, safety and style.

Highlights include awalk-through tent at the tailgate, fold-out bed, two compact folding camp chairs and a table, plus tray tables for rear passengers, block-out window curtains, a rechargeable torch and four storage bags for rear side windows.

With five folding seats and generous interior space, the Caddy Beach can get a family on the road without the need for a trailer.

The vehicle’s practicality is paired with advanced safety technologies, such as autonomous braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Assist and fog lights with cornering functionality.

The Caddy Beach is distinguished by bi-xenon headlights, 17-inch Canyon alloys and a special ‘Beach’ decal.

Darker elements like black roof rails, tinted rear tail lights and tinted passenger windows create a stylish contrast with the paint work.

Inside, a colour multi-function display adds a premium look to the dash.

Audi is provided by the six-speaker Composition Media infotainment system with App-Connect.

“This marks our return to the campervan market in Australia,” says Nicholas Reid, Marketing Manager of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Australia.

“With the iconic and ubiquitous Kombi van, Volkswagen forged a strong connection with travellers and explorers around the world. The Caddy Beach continues this tradition with the latest in engineering and technology.”

The Caddy Beach will be available towards the end of the year priced from $44,990.
