The Wright Cadet was a midibus body built by British coachbuilder Wrightbus between 2000 to 2006, solely on the DAF/VDL SB120 chassis. It was sold via VDL dealer Arriva Bus & Coach. For a time, Volvo additionally sold the chassis/body combination, however the body was marketed as the Merit. It sold in large numbers in London and with major operators in the UK and in mainland Europe, with some going to Arriva in The Netherlands.
