5 Reasons Why You Should Buy a Volkswagen Crafter for Your Business

If you’re still on the fence about whether buying a Volkswagen Crafter van is the right decision for your business, then allow us to highlight some of this multi-purpose vehicle’s features:

#1 Tried, Tested and Proven Durability

When the latest Crafter range was still in the testing phase, over 700 vehicles underwent rigorous testing. These tests included both aggravated long and short-distance testing with an identified durability of around 300,000 km minimum for the drivetrain, an intense 10,000 km corrosion test and more. Either LWB or MWB configuration is an excellent choice for a reliable workhorse.

#2 Unrivalled Cabin Ergonomics

Step inside the Volkswagen Crafter and settle down either behind the wheel, in the co-driver’ seat or as a passenger. The cabin was created to offer all seat occupants complete and utter comfort and practicality. New features that will enhance your in-cabin experience include storage compartments large enough to accommodate laptops and A4 lever arch files, as well as spacious storage compartments found on top of the dash panel which can hold A4 writing pads. Volkswagen’s latest Crafter range has been designed with the driver’s needs in mind.

#3 Enjoy a Stress-Free Journey With Load Adaptive Control

When the Crafter undergoes any changes in its centre of gravity along its longitudinal axis or in terms of its vehicle mass, safety systems such as ABS, ESC and traction control are triggered in response to its vehicle load. This ensures that you can enjoy a smooth, safe and stress-free journey, even with a full load of cargo.

#4 It Features One of the Best Drag Coefficients in Its Class

The new Volkswagen Crafter range features optimised vehicle aerodynamics, which ultimately results in an aerodynamically designed van and incredible efficiency in terms of both emissions and optimal fuel consumption.

#5 Experience Improved Driving Comfort With Electromechanical Power Steering

To ensure that you experience enhanced driving comfort, the VW Crafter offers a driving experience similar to a passenger vehicle thanks to its electromechanical power steering, along with its suspension and chassis setup. This kind of power steering has another considerable advantage to it: it allows you to add driver assistance systems like Lane, Park and Trailer Assist.
