The design of the freshened Volkswagen Caddy is in line with VW’s most recent design language, but the hypothetical GTI version muscles up the exterior design with a GTI-correct honeycomb grille and red stripe. The front clip benefits from additional GTI cues such as the design around the foglights as well as proper red GTI badges on the side of the vehicle. The rendered Caddy GTI also wears some great-looking GTI-spec wheels that seem to be wrapped in some very low-profile rubber.
We can only imagine the rush deliveries a Volkswagen Caddy GTI would be able to complete, traffic notwithstanding. But the idea of Caddy GTI might not be that far of a stretch. Let’s not forget that Ford actually did something similar with the Ford Transit Connect RS, which featured the 2.0-liter turbo engine from the Mk1 Focus RS and outfitted the commercial van with proper suspension bits and gearbox. It wasn’t a high-volume seller, but it turned out to be a crowd pleaser and a halo vehicle for the entire Transit Connect line as well as for the Ford brand as a whole.
Perhaps the supposed Volkswagen Caddy GTI could borrow the 2.0-liter turbo four from its Golf GTI cousin? The mill makes a VW-advertised 210-220 horsepower, but it would seem that it actually makes more than that.
So, Volkswagen Caddy GTI: yay, or nay?
