The biggest van in the Volkswagen range the Volkswagen Crafter has huge load space and an even bigger choice of options. Choose from 3 wheelbases, 3 roof heights and adaptable chassis cabs with tipper and dropside available for a vehicle that suits your business needs.
The load space of the Crafter, given its many options, can be as much as 17 cubic metres with a load length of up to 4.7 metres long, enough to handle 5 Euro pallets. The load space comes with interior lighting and anchorage points for securing the load on the move as well as steel bulkhead to protect the driver from moving cargo. To maximise the ease of loading and unloading the rear swing doors open out to 270 degrees and there is a sliding side door for side access.
The smooth running 2.0 TDi litre diesel engines come in 4 options – 109, 114 and 136hp and the BiTDi 163hp. A fuel consumption of up to 31.7 – 37mpg can be achieved but this depends on the load being carried and how efficiently the vehicle is driven.
Options that can be added to the VW Crafter include an extra sliding door to give access from both sides of the vehicle, 16 inch alloy wheels, climatic air control that can be adjusted at the touch of a button and BlueMotion technology to enhance the vehicles fuel economy. To protect the interior load space there is also an option to Craft the interior of your Crafter with ply lining, a full load rigid loadliner and rubber or carpet mats for the front of the vehicle. There is also a range of towing accessories available should there be a need to transport greater loads than the interior load space caters for.
Safety options that can be added to this already reputably safe vehicle are cargo bars to protect the cargo on the move, a load securing net and all of the accessories that go with them. On the outside of the vehicle is a rear view camera with parking sensor to ensure that the driver can see when reversing or parking and that no bumps or accidents are incurred as a result of poor visibility.
The position of the driver’s seat allows for good visibility and the cab is comfortable over long distances. There are lots of storage solutions and a handy fold down table, which is stored in the back of the central seat. There is overhead storage above the front windscreen to allow things to be stored securely and out of sight.
