The biggest model in Volkswagen’s van selection, the Crafter is an eminently customisable commercial vehicle that can handle an extensive range of business requirements. The Crafter Panel Van boasts impressive build quality and is surprisingly comfortable to travel in too.
The Crafter Panel Van features (electrically heated and adjustable) door mirrors and convex mirrors, the latter incorporating indicator lights. A passenger sliding door and 270-degree-opening rear wing doors offer easy access to the cab and cargo bay. Front and rear towing eyes are also featured. Lighting includes range-adjustable headlights, daytime running lights, a rear fog lamp and a high-mounted brake light. The extremely flexible Crafter Panel Van is available in a wide range of shapes and sizes, from short wheelbase and low-roof models to long wheelbase and super-high variants.
Maximum payloads range from 1,428kg to 2,604kg, depending on the model you choose. A full-height steel bulkhead, multiple load-lashing rings, a rear-door release lever and wooden flooring are all included. The driver’s seat and multifunction steering wheel, both adjustable, enable you to find your ideal position. A dual passenger seat enables the vehicle to convey up to three people. Power-assisted steering and electric front windows are among the standard features included. Storage provision includes back-rest compartments, document holders, a glovebox, overhead storage and five drink holders.
Four diesel engines are available for the Crafter, offering a choice of 108bhp, 113bhp, 135bhp and 161bhp, each providing strong torque outputs. The latter option delivers 37.7mpg and a CO2 emission figure of 208g/km, making it the most powerful and the most frugal choice. The Start/Stop system automatically cuts the engine when it is not needed, reducing fuel consumption in the process.
A five-speaker sound system includes an RSD 4000 radio, and connectivity is provided by Bluetooth®, USB, AUX and SD interfaces. Driver aids include an Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Programme and Traction Control System. Passive safety features such as seatbelt reminders and height-adjustable head restraints are standard too. Remote central locking and an engine immobiliser help to keep the vehicle secure.
