Devoted Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle fans can finally get their hands on the brand new Transporter and Caddy vans as they become available to test drive at two of South Wales’ leading van centres.

Sinclair Van Centres in Cardiff and Swansea are gearing up to hand over the keys to the new vehicles giving customers the chance to see for themselves the many enhancements and updates.

Both models are hugely popular in the UK and their arrival at the van centres on Monday 7th September is eagerly anticipated.

The distinctive sixth-generation Transporter boasts a sharper and more refined appearance with more efficient engines, a host of safety, comfort and convenience  features and the widest range of engine, transmission and trim level options ever offered by Volkswagen.

The Caddy sets a new benchmark in its class for its safety and convenience innovations. New state-of-the-art technology and engine options are set to ensure the fourth-generation model continues the success of its predecessors.

Tim Gowling, head of business at Sinclair Van Centre Cardiff, said: “This is an exciting time for the business as the arrival of the new Transporter and Caddy is generating a lot of interest.

“The new Transporter panel van delivers significant equipment enhancements. It offers many new standard features including BlueMotion Technology, DAB+ digital radio, 5-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth phone connectivity and USB connection and Automatic Post Collision Braking system, which automatically applies the brake after collision, reducing the risk of a secondary impact.”

The acclaimed BlueMotion Technology modification includes low rolling resistance tyres regenerative braking and start/stop systems, to help reduce fuel consumption.

“The Caddy panel van has equally generous standard  equipment including electric windows, DAB+ and Bluetooth capability, plus safety features including various driver and front passenger airbags and Post Collision Braking system, to name a few.

“With such a wide choice of trim levels and additional available options we encourage potential customers to pre-book a test drive during our launch event so they can see the changes for themselves,” added Tim.

In addition Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is also launching its new Transporter Shuttle, Caravelle, Caddy Life and Maxi vehicles and is taking orders for the latest California campervan with deliveries expected before the end of the year.

The launch event takes place from 7th to 16th September. For further details on the new Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles range and finance offers call the Cardiff van centre on 01792 448 118 and the Swansea business on  01792 447 074 or visit www.sinclairvans.co.uk.
