Crafter appeal widens with addition of new models

The appeal of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ all-new multi-award-winning Crafter has widened with a raft of new model derivatives now available to order in Van Centres across the UK.

Panel vans with 4MOTION all-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic gearbox are now available, along with open body models in single and double cab variants.

At its launch at the Commercial Vehicle Show in April, front-wheel drive versions with gross vehicle weights up to 3.5 tonne were available with three engines and a manual gearbox. The expansion of the range sees available gross vehicle weights now up to 5.0 tonnes.

The addition of open body models to the range opens the door to conversions via Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ Recognised Converter scheme, meaning customers in the market for a Luton, dropside, tipper or other more unusual adaptation have the perfect base vehicle.

Further derivatives will continue to join the line-up in 2018, including a 122 PS engine which will join the current 102, 140 and 177 PS powertrain options.

The all-new Crafter now offers maximum flexibility as well as a comprehensive suite of innovative technologies.

As on all Volkswagen vans, the Crafter comes as standard with autonomous emergency braking and automatic post-collision braking systems – a first in the van sector. Cross wind assist (for closed bodies) and a driver alert system are also standard.
