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.

Volvo Merit

An example of the largely identical Volvo Merit combination in use with Warrington Borough Transport.

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.
