New Crafter drops in to CV Show 2017

Volkswagen gave the new Crafter its official UK launch, showcasing panel vans and dropsides. Front-wheel drive versions will offer a cargo capacity of 18.4m3, spanning 3.0 - 4.0 tonnes, while rear-wheel drive models will increase peak weights to 3.5 - 5.5 tonnes.

Unlike its predecessor, the Crafter is no longer built by Mercedes-Benz, alongside the Sprinter. Instead, for the first time in 20 years, the Crafter is built by Volkswagen. This means it benefits from its comprehensive range of tech, with the 2.0 TDI engine and gearbox sourced from the T6 Transporter.
