  • Does the vw crafter have good fuel consumption?

    Volkswagen hasn't provided official fuel consumption figures for the 2018-spec Crafter as there are 59 variants available, and they will have wildly different fuel efficiency. The medium-wheelbase van will surely be much more frugal than the long-wheelbase high-roof model with extended rear overhang, or the heavy duty 4x4 light truck version! Still, Tim Robson saw an average of 10.2-litres per-100km on his short drive around Auckland at the Crafter launch this year.
