With the new, fifth-generation Volkswagen Caddy and Golf 8 GTI both recently revealed, digital artist X-Tomi Design has decided to (digitally) give the Wolfsburg-based automaker’s MPV the GTI treatment.
Sporting a similar upper facia to the production model, the Caddy (seen here in MPV guise) has received various GTI-specific design cues. As has become customary, a red line spans the edge of the bonnet, extending into the headlamps, while a GTI badge is fitted to the slim grille. Lower down, the Caddy has adopted the Golf GTI’s front-bumper design, which now features a honeycomb motif and integrated X-shaped foglamps. The hot hatch’s 17-inch five-spoke Richmond alloys have also been carried over to the MPV.
As CARmag.co.za reported when it was unveiled, in Europe the standard Caddy will be available with the choice of a 2,0-litre turbodiesel four-pot (in 55 kW or 90 kW state of tune), an 84 kW turbopetrol mill and, in select markets, a supercharged, TGI-badged unit. However, donning the GTI moniker, this imagined Caddy most likely sports the Golf 8 GTI’s EA888 engine, producing 180 kW and 370 N.m of torque.
