New Volkswagen Crafter For 2017

Next year will see the release of the New Volkswagen Crafter, with some design photos now realised for the public to see.

This newly introduced version will bring it in line with the features in a Ford Transit and Mercedes Sprinter for a large panel van class. It is set to have a larger box body with the familiar 2.0 litre diesel engine. The van is now Euro 6 compliant and will be available in four power outputs, 100bhp, 120bhp, 138bhp and a bi-turbo unit with 175bhp.

The New Volkswagen Crafter will be available in three lengths and three roof heights, providing a wider choice to match the load needed to be carried, with an entry level load bay of 2600mm in line with the current model and a width of 1300mm to match.

The main advantages will be the addition of lots of safety tech including electric steering wheel which will allow for more safety systems to actively intervene during driving. The model will also include ESP with trailer stabilisation, adaptive cruise control, side-wind assistance and a trailer manoeuvring system, front side and head airbags for driver and passenger, reversing camera, parking sensors and a rear traffic alert system which will all be available as standard or optional features.
