Volkswagen Crafter range now with higher specification as standard

The Volkswagen Crafter range is getting a boost to its standard specification, with over £700-worth of extras now standard, making the Crafter more competitive.

In the cab, the added specification includes Bluetooth, a multi-function steering wheel (also adjustable for reach and rake), armrests for the driver's seat, electrically operated and heated door mirrors and cruise control. The load area now has a wooden floor as standard, plus an entry handle and 270 degree-opening rear doors.

Prices for the Crafter range start from £21,050 with contract hire and finance lease rates from £299 a month (plus VAT and initial rental), including a £1,000 initial rental contribution and four free services. Alternatively, if financed with lease purchase or hire purchase, a £2,000 deposit contribution is available.

Mark Hopkins, head of marketing at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles said: “With its higher specification, economical BlueMotion engines, affordable finance and impressive residual values, the Crafter is an extremely competitive proposition in the large van market.

“We have already seen a significant increase in Crafter sales this year, and as the new models offer even better value, we expect to see it become even more popular now.”
