Caddy Life Design

The Caddy Life isn’t a trend-setting marvel of design. But what it lacks in fashion it more than makes up for in-cabin space and sheer practicality.

Volkswagen has done wonders with the Caddy Life. It’s a compact vehicle with a 4.506mm length and 1.793mm width but, that doesn’t mean less space. In-fact from the inside, it feels like a much larger car with ample leg and headroom.

“Build to last” seems to have been the ethos Volkswagen took when creating the Caddy Life. It’s robust build and the material used are all high-quality; with the dash and door inserts being hard plastic. Offering a unique toughness that family buyers will appreciate.

The Caddy Life has 17 storage compartments, making it ideal for long trips and the day-to-day. It can transport up to five adults without anyone feeling uncomfortable or cramped. But for anyone needing a bigger alternative Volkswagen offer a seven-seater version with their Caddy Maxi Life.

The Drive

Being a compact MPV, the mid-range Caddy Life can get roughly 55mpg or up to 70mpg with an engine remap, eco-tyres and aerodynamic improvements.

Being comfortable to drive seems to be a staple of the Caddy ranges the Caddy Life is no different. However, on tight bends and big bumps, it can feel a little unsettling; which given that its van-based design can be forgiven.

Our Thoughts on the Caddy Life

With all its great features and storage options, this Caddy checks all the boxes for a highly popular MPV.

What our customers say

My husband has always loved camping, I have always said I would hate it. We couldn't afford the 30 grand for a 10 year old VW camper. So when he showed me the details of a Redcote day/micro van I was persuaded to go and have a look. What a revelation! Jason showed us the various beautifully kitted out vans with no hard sell or pressure to buy, it was obvious he knew his stuff and loved the vans. We bought one straight away. We have had days out cooking on the little stove and sitting in the back at the table. We also bought the awning, which is really a little tent that fits neatly on the back of the van. We have been camping over night, what could be better – the room of the little tent to sit/eat in and then climbing up to sleep in the comfy double bed in the back of the van. It is perfect and we love it and would recommend Redcote Leisure


We are happy to recommend this place. Jason is very knowledgeable about his product, and was able to talk us novices through what we needed to know. When there were a couple of unforseen glitches, these were sorted out quickly and in a friendly and professional manner. A pleasure to deal with him, and we would not hesitate to do so again. We have now had a couple of brilliant excursions in our camper…one a local try out, the other a 1400 mile 5 day trip to the far side of Germany, taking in 5 countries in total and finishing up at an excellent campsite in Belgium. The camper did everything required and we had a brilliant trip.

Micro camping is such fun! Jason at Redcote is very helpful. Top marks from us.

Joye Colbeck

Jason is a lovely guy, knowledgeable, accommodating and certainly NOT a pushy sales person. Only too happy to allow a test drive in any of his stock. I am a newbie in mini campers and he has given me a lot of help and things to think about without making rushed commitments.
