Those looking to invest in a medium to large van are in luck, as the Crafter range comes in 3.5 ton and 5-ton GVM versions, as well as two different wheelbases.  One of 3,640mm and another of 4x490mm.  Finally, the Crafter is available with three vehicle distinct roof configurations and three body lengths as well.  It doesn't matter which business you're in or how tough your vehicle needs to be, a Volkswagen Crafter will be able to take on the challenge and get the job done every time.  It's a loyal workhorse unlike any other.  

Volkswagen's Commercial Division may be in charge of its production, but the range definitely takes its design cues from the acclaimed automaker's passenger vehicle line-up when it comes to looks.  This benefits the van range greatly when it comes to the exterior as well as interior design.  For now, we will be focusing on the Volkswagen Crafter interior and all it has to offer in terms of standard and optional looks, features, space, and practicality.

Drivers can look forward to a particularly comfortable seat featuring longitudinal and backrest

pleasant to the touch. Its interior is designed to hold up to even the roughest conduct.

You won’t feel overwhelmed with the number of buttons and dials on the Crafter front panel

chunky dials or large and easy to use buttons.

Not only is the interior a more practical place to be in the latest Volkswagen Crafter range, but
everything is laid out in such a way that it’s easy to use, supporting the crewmembers during
their challenging day on the job. Overall, the interior is now a far better place to be.
