The Wright Cadet was a low floor midibus body built by British coachbuilder Wrightbus between 2000 and 2006, solely on the DAF/VDL SB120 chassis. It was sold via VDL dealer Arriva Bus & Coach. 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.
The SB120/Cadet combination was also sold through Volvo Buses for a time following the withdrawal from sale of their own B6BLE chassis in 2002 without a direct replacement. Cadets sold through Volvo were marketed as the Volvo Merit, although they were identical to Cadets sold through Wrightbus.
