The Volkswagen Crafter

See the latest Crafter offers

Customisable to your precise requirements – whatever the task

As the largest van in the Volkswagen commercials range, the Crafter gives you the power to do exactly the jobs you need to.The Crafter’s robust design translates in to five different models: panel van, chassis & double cabs, dropside, tipper and Luton van. Added to Volkswagen’s Engineered to go™ and tailored Engineered for you™ solutions, these choices make the Crafter the most flexible van on the market.

Big on safety as well as size

Braking with large loads can be risky – that’s why the Crafter’s electronic brake force distribution comes as standard, helping to prevent rear wheel lock-up. Despite its size the Crafter stays stable thanks to the electronic stabilisation programme (ESP), designed to prevent your van from swerving in dangerous conditions. Driver’s airbag is fitted as standard to all Crafter models, as are ABS, audio-visual seatbelt warning, tyre pressure monitor and Brake Assist system which helps ensure maximum brake pressure is applied faster in emergency situations.

The power to deliver more torque and more economy

The power behind the Crafter is the acclaimed 2.0 TDI common rail engine, available in 109ps, 114ps and the more powerful 140ps. There’s also a BiTurbo Diesel engine (BiTDI) which produces 163ps and 400Nm of torque. All Crafters are designed to deliver the optimum balance between power and economy and all are fitted with diesel particulate filters.

Driving comfort to new levels

We understand that driving position – especially in big vans – is crucial for driver comfort and performance, so the Crafter comes with an armrest and easily adjustable steering wheel and seat for height, reach and rake. The steering wheel is also multi-functional enabling you to sit comfortably with all key controls within easy reach. And with standard equipment like cruise control, an RSD 4000 radio with Bluetooth® hands-free telephone connectivity (which can connect with 2 devices at the same), audio streaming, AUX-IN and USB interfaces – the Crafter gives you all the tools to keep connected whilst you’re driving.

The New Volkswagen Crafter is now available to order:

The crafter is the largest of the Volkswagen commercial vehicles and its robust design makes it perfect for working purposes. This is the first update of the model since 2006, the van has been updated with stylish interior, a range of new safety features and is particularly focused on the comfort of the interior in comparison to the 2006 model.

The standard safety kit on all models will include four airbags, Automatic Post-Collision Breaking System, ESP stability and side wind assist. Options on the new Crafter are Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Assist and Front-Assist emergency braking. The new practical design utilizes space to the best of its ability, with up to three different vehicle heights and lengths available allows you to cater the Crafter for your specific needs. The structure of the New Crafter makes it extremely manoeuvrable yet solid.

There are several engine and drivetrain choices available in the new Crafter. The brand new 2.0-litre TDI engine, developed just for Crafter, is available with four power outputs: 102 PS, 122 PS and 140 PS, plus a bi-turbo TDI with 177 PS. The choice of engines depends on which drive system is selected. There is a choice between front, rear and all-wheel drive (4MOTION), as well as automatic or manual, offering complete flexibility.
