    Agility and Space at its Best

    Spacious and stylish, the Volkswagen Kudos™ brings a taste of luxury to the taxi trade. Providing comfort and practicality in abundance, Kudos™ makes every journey a rewarding driving experience. Kudos™ combines superb versatility and masses of space with easy wheelchair access to create the perfect vehicle for the modern day driver. Whether it’s nights out, shoppers, airports, ranks or accessible contracts, with Kudos™ you can cater for all types of work.

    Economy & Drive

    Volkswagen’s new generation 2.0 litre diesel engine delivers superb performance combined with impressive fuel savings and low emissions. It drives like a dream too. The large windscreen and electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors give you superb all-round vision whilst Volkswagen’s reliable engineering and extensive class leading safety features assure you of a long and trouble free working life. Plus, with the choice of manual or DSG automatic transmission, Kudos™ makes the perfect taxi partner, whatever your taste.

    *Combined cycle, manual transmission.



    Comfort Cab

    The long length of the Kudos™ means there’s plenty of legroom for everyone, without compromising on luggage space in the boot. Add standard features such as a driver’s armrest, electric front windows, climatic air conditioning and a height-adjustable driver’s seat to go with the rake and reach-adjustable steering column and you’re guaranteed a relaxing fare, every trip. The latest model also features improved interior acoustics and a broad selection of radio and infotainment systems, including DAB radio and Bluetooth® connectivity.


    With numerous handy storage areas, Kudos™ makes superb use of space. Particularly useful is the luggage carrying capacity, which is simply huge thanks to Kudos’ rear access ramp which folds flat to the vehicle floor when not in use, allowing you to make full use of the cavernous boot area. Plus, due to the vehicle length, there’s no need to fold the rear seats down when transporting a wheelchair passenger. This means less hassle for you and more room for luggage or additional passengers if required.




    When required, Kudos’™ lightweight FlatFold™ rear access ramp simply lifts from the floor where it’s stowed when not in use, making loading wheelchair passengers quick and easy. Securing the wheelchair passenger couldn’t be simpler either. Providing room for driver, wheelchair passenger and up to four seated passengers, Kudos™ is the ideal choice for today’s busy driver.
