LONDON – May 31, 2013: The Volkswagen Crafter range is getting a boost to its standard specification, with over 700-worth of extras now standard, making the Crafter not only one of the most competitive large vans on the market, but also more practical and convenient for drivers.

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, but the other good news is that Volkswagen’s current offer includes 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.

‘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,’ said Mark Hopkins, Head of Marketing, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. ‘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,’ he continued.

The Crafter range includes panel vans with load volumes of up to 17m3, window vans with up to eight passenger seats, single- and double-chassis cabs, plus tipper and dropside ‘Engineered to go’ conversions.
