Volkswagen Caddy Life
More Inclusion. More Life.
The new VW Caddy WAV offers outstanding space, comfort and inclusion in a compact, modern package.
The new Brotherwood Caddy Goodlife and Caddy Morelife conversions offer a long, flat, and level lowered floor. This unique Caddy Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle conversion is inclusive by design, with the wheelchair positioned between the rear passenger seats. Despite the interior space, the Caddy is a compact, car-like drive, ideal for everyday life and easy parking.
GIVING YOU MORE
Whilst the new Caddy Life is compact and easy-to-drive, interior space is maximised by the low, flat, level floor, which runs smoothly through to the front passenger area. Offering more space for the wheelchair user to travel centrally, inline with the rear seat passengers, and with a better view out of the windows and windscreen.
The flat floor also promotes ideal posture for the wheelchair user, making every journey more comfortable. Sitting lower within the car also reduces the wheelchair user’s centre of gravity, minimising the feeling of body-roll when cornering.
Travelling centrally within the shell promotes the feeling of safety. The powered PAWRS* restraint system, combined with our STORQ* self-tensioning restraints, ensures that the wheelchairs up to 200kg are securely tied-down with ease and travel with peace of mind.
Few Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle converters include the compact Caddy Life in their range of vehicles, choosing instead the longer Caddy Maxi. The Caddy Morelife WAV offers easy wheelchair access, but is shorter in length, making it an ideal small wheelchair accessible vehicle for everyday living.
The new Caddy is available with a range of Petrol TSI and Euro 6 TDI engines, some of the most efficient in class. The TDI engines feature twin-dosing technology, which helps to reduce NOx emissions. Available with either 6-speed manual or 7-speed DSG gearboxes, the new Caddy offers an excellent driving experience whilst meeting the latest emission standards.
A lightweight counter-balanced ramp provides wheelchair access to the rear of the vehicle, which can accommodate most manual or electric powered wheelchairs. Feather-light-the ramp can be lifted with a single finger – and features a high-grip surface for safe, easy loading with bright yellow guidelines.
The Caddy Morelife is equipped with our PAWRS Power Assisted Wheelchair Restraint System, which makes loading easy with it’s remote-controlled winching operation for combined wheelchair and occupant weights up to 250kg.
