First Look at the New Crafter

First Look at the New Crafter

The new Crafter is nearly here! Volkswagen engineers spent a huge amount of time out on the road with important customer groups including couriers, construction workers and long distance drivers, so they could design a vehicle that met their needs exactly.

The new Crafter will be available with front, rear and 4MOTION all-wheel drive. The EU6EA 288 2.0TDI engine, developed especially for this model, is available with four power outputs: 102PS, 122PS, 140PS and a bi-turbo TDI 177PS. The choice of engine depends on which drive system is selected. Such variety has never been seen before in this segment.

The engines work with the new exterior design to give the model low consumption and emission figures. The new Crafter also scores for its robustness plus low maintenance and repair costs, all of which help to minimise total cost of ownership.

There are three different vehicle lengths available depending on the model chosen, while the closed body variants come with up to three different roof heights. This means customers can configure the new Crafter exactly as they need it and find the best combination of engine, gearbox, drive system, vehicle length and roof height to meet their needs.

The optimal dimensions of the new Crafter ensures maximum practicality and ease in everyday situations. The new Crafter sets new standards for assistance and safety systems in the large van sector, due largely to an electro-mechanical steering system that's being used for the first time in this vehicle class. It allows for numerous driver assistant systems to be used including ESP with trailer stabilisation, adaptive cruise control, post-collision braking, side wind compensation and a trailer manoeuvring assistant.

Front, side and head airbags for the driver and passengers are also on offer along with an extensive range of warning systems, including a reversing camera, parking distance monitor and rear traffic alert system. LED headlights, cornering lights and light assist provide a clear tailored to the specific needs of customers.
