The camper? Too expensive and too bulky. Unless it’s a minicamper. The idea is about to materialize in Volkswagen dealerships. Based on the new generation (the fifth) of the commercial Caddy, the manufacturer has designed a set-up ready for holidays in freedom. The first images (three drawings) of what should be called, in fact, Caddy Mini Camper have just been launched.

Not a novelty for the Caddy. As early as 2005 the tourist version of the Beach had entered the German commercial range. Today, in view of the debut of the new work Caddy (based on the MQB Evo platform, that of the Golf 8), the vocation for free time is also confirmed, demonstrating the versatility of the model.

Mini is not going to almost: this Caddy a real camper, in the sense that it has everything you need to make a couple or family live comfortably (not large, okay). For example, the tent, which can be pizzato near the vehicle and connected to it, in the rear area, in order to create an additional living-space or a second sleeping area.

But the most spectacular and pleasant detail the Caddy Mini Camper the panoramic glass roof covering an area of ​​1.4 square meters: the internal space as if it were losing a wall, to extend as far as the gaze can reach … Not bad for a vehicle that, after all, remains small. Even the transparent roof, like the side windows, can be darkened, you want to protect privacy, you want to protect yourself from the sun.

In the standard equipment of the Mini Camper there are, well integrated, the chairs and the camping table. And of course there is a bed almost two meters long (with disc springs) that finds space by breaking down the rear seat seat. The debut is scheduled for September. No anticipation on the price. Instead, the range of engines is known to match that of the new commercial Caddy: a 116-horsepower TSI petrol and two 75 and 122-horsepower TDI turbodiesels.
