Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

As one of the latest van designs on the market, the current generation Volkswagen Crafter has a distinct advantage over many of its rivals. The technology is newer and many of the safety features are more advanced than its competitors offer.

The van’s new electromechanical steering is the key to this, and allows it to have extra features such as Trailer Assist, which helps when you're parking with a trailer, and the Park Steering Assist. They make it a much more appealing choice for someone looking to spend big on the best available van.

Overview

The VW Crafter is every inch the accomplished heavyweight mover and volume carrier. For many users it is the best large van on the market.

  • Quiet and comfortable
  • Well thought out interior
  • Huge carrying capacity
  • Fairly dull on the inside
  • Confusing size and height names
