Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 42 - 54 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

The best Caddy will average 55.4mpg, giving 735 miles on one tank. For a seven-seater mid-sized mpv this is a cracking statistic. Some VW dealers may not be able to service the Caddy Maxi because it is based on the van platform so make sure you check beforehand to avoid nasty surprises further down the line.

The greenest Caddy Maxi MPV is the BlueMotion with the 101PS power output and it has the lowest CO2 emissions of the Caddy range at 134g/km. It should average 55.4mpg to give a potential range of 735 miles on one tank of diesel.

The Caddy has proved a reliable performer and this version should be no different.
