The Crafter is the largest member of the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles range and features chunky and purposeful looks that only partially reveal its underlying strength. With a wide choice of panel vans, window vans, chassis and double cabs – not to mention our off-the-shelf Engineered to go™ and tailored Engineered for you™ solutions, you’ll find that whatever your load carrying requirements, there’s a model in the Crafter range that will do the job.
Your safety is a vital factor, so we ensure that a long list of safety and security features are built-in to every vehicle we produce. Since we first introduced structural safety features on commercial vehicles over 35 years ago, Volkswagen’s policy of continuous safety development has been setting the pace. Every Volkswagen model incorporates a range of both active and passive safety features, to ensure the safety and security of both you and your load.
Our renowned TDI engines have long been setting the standards in diesel technology – and with rising fuel costs, we’ve also been working hard to lower fuel consumption, while reducing CO2 emissions. The Crafter engine range reflects this with a choice of five 2.0 litre common-rail diesel engines – all mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. Three engines use TDI technology, while the powerful 163PS diesel engine (available as both Euro 5 and Euro 6) features BiTurbo (BiTDI) technology for the ultimate diesel experience. All engines in the Crafter range are equipped with diesel particulate filters and are designed to deliver the perfect balance of power, torque, flexibility and economy – meaning you’re sure to find an engine that’s perfectly suited to the particular demands of your business.
BlueMotion Technology (BMT) is available as a cost-effective addition to selected models in the Crafter range. It consists of three key elements, which when added together, contribute to significant improvements in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. As a business, this not only benefits your pocket, but also demonstrates your concern for the environment! The best reflection of these virtues can be found in the CR30 2.0TDI 109PS and CR30 2.0TDI 136PS Crafter BlueMotion panel vans, which as the most environmentally friendly models in the Crafter range, deliver the perfect balance between load capacity, power, torque and economy.
Spacious, durable, comfortable and well-equipped – the Crafter’s cab is the perfect example of what we do best. It combines practicality and superb ergonomics with a wide range of standard features, all designed to help you through your working day. Once comfortably seated on a driver’s seat that adjusts for height, reach and rake and features an armrest, you’ll discover a versatile multi-function steering wheel that adjusts for reach and rake – allowing you to find the perfect driving position and have all key controls within easy reach. And with standard electric windows, cruise control and an RSD 4000 radio with Bluetooth® hands-free telephone connectivity (simultaneous pairing for two devices), Bluetooth® audio streaming, SD card slot, AUX-IN and USB interfaces – you’find a modern and stylish environment that’s a pleasure to use.
