And aiding the driver is a wealth of aids including Adaptive Chassis Control (ACC), Electronic Differential Lock (XDS), Engine Drag Torque Control, and Electronic Stabilization Program (ESP).

  1. Euro 5? Are our fuels ready for that already? From what I know we're still at Euro 4 rated fuels. Those engines will suffer from a lower rated fuels.

  2. I'm no car enthusiast, so the one that interests me most is the Caddy for a family hauler that's efficient and flexible as well. :)

  3. VW TDI is a fuel efficient engine. I've been watching many reviews on the caddy and all of them have a positive views on this vehicle. I hope VW PH would also bring here the VW Amarok pick up. It would be a good addition to VW PH's product line.
