The Volkswagen Crafter

Class-leading fuel economy. Service intervals up to 50,000km.

The new Volkswagen Crafter lays the benchmark for large vans throughout the world. Read the specification sheet and you’ll be left wondering how Volkswagen have done it. The bar has been raised.

From class-leading fuel economy and 50,000km service intervals to the best load capacity in the class and absolute state-of-the-art drive assistance systems, there’s no wonder the new Crafter was named International Van of the Year 2017, and now Stuff Top Van of the Year 2019.

The new Crafter is the first in the market with technology such as Automatic Post-Collision Braking, Servotronic Steering with Side-Wind Compensation, Sensor-Based Side Protection and a trailer maneuvering system.

Available in manual transmission or full 8-speed automatic, with three drivetrains; front wheel drive, rear wheel drive or 4MOTION AWD.

Sized right for your needs.

The dimensions of the new Crafter are flexible for complete practicality and ease in your everyday business use.

For example, maximum cargo capacity has been combined with minimal external dimensions, making it extremely maneuverable. There are also up to three different vehicle lengths and heights available depending on your chosen model, along with a large number of storage configurations, meaning you can build the Crafter to meet your needs.

The Crafter has been designed for ‘solution-based’ rather than ‘model-based’ selling. We don’t aim to fit you into a particular model based on the models available, instead we work with you to understand your business and your transport requirements, then build a solution to meet your specific needs.

“Volkswagen’s comfort-focused new Crafter van gains a wider range, an outstanding interior and a host of safety kit… The key area where this Volkswagen panel van has extended its on-paper appeal is in the breadth of its range. The core panel van models offer three roof heights and three load lengths but these are joined by 5-seater double cab models as well as dropside and tipper trucks. This gives a total of 69 different configurations, but there’s more options than just body style. The Crafter is now available with front, rear or 4Motion four-wheel drive, giving an even broader array of choice to operators.”
