Business Pack adds to Caddy Startline’s appeal, says Dan Gilkes.

Volkswagen has traditionally made specifying one of its vans a fairly easy task. Clear steps in trim level are marked by Startline, Trendline and Highline models, offering buyers a known progression and price structure.


However, while plenty of fleet buyers may be drawn to the lower entry cost of a Startline model, they could also be attracted by driver comfort items like air conditioning, or safety and security features such as alarms and reversing sensors.


This means opting for a more expensive trim level, which may include features that are not required, or delving into the individual options list for specific items. Now,­­ however, you can add a Business Pack to the basic Startline trim, on Caddy, Transporter and Crafter models.


For Caddy and Caddy Maxi buyers, the Business Pack includes rear parking sensors, Climatic air conditioning and a Thatcham Category 1 anti-theft alarm, with interior monitoring and towing protection. Given the summer that we have had, air conditioning almost seems an essential box to tick, while a decent alarm system and reversing sensors could easily repay the investment.


The pack adds £950 to the van’s list price, but that’s around £500 less than if you were to select each of the options separately. Perhaps crucially, it also represents a saving over the £1,500 required to move from Startline to a Trendline van.
