  • All engines fulfil the 2021 Euro 6 emissions standards and are all fitted with particulate filters

  • The rear axle is completely new, incorporating a solid Panhard rod controlled by a trailing arm. Previous leaf spring design has been replaced by a coil spring construction
  • Compact rear suspension design allows for a wider load width and potential to integrate alternative drive systems
  • The rear axle has been designed and balanced to deliver increased agility in all load situations while still providing excellent ride comfort
  • All new Caddy models are fitted with a new range of tyres with optimised rolling resistance
