2008 IAA: VW Caddy 4MOTION PanAmericana and Caddy Life-Style Edition

Aside from the highly-anticipated Pickup truck concept, VW has readied two special variants of its Caddy minivan for the 62nd IAA Commercial Vehicles show in Hanover (public days: 25 September to 2 October). The PanAmericana is a crossover study based on the newly introduced 4-wheel-drive Caddy 4MOTION and it features a higher ground clearance, 16-inch alloy wheels wrapped in off-road tires, protective moldings on the side sills and the front and rear bumper and, a special leather trim on the inside. As with the standard Caddy 4MOTION, the PanAmericana is driven by a 105 HP 1.9-liter turbo diesel engine matted to a six-speed manual gearbox. -Continued
