Volkswagen CRAFTER 2019

Our most recent review of the 2019 Volkswagen Crafter resulted in a score of 7.8 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Managing Editor - Head of Video Matt Campbell had this to say at the time: If you’re in the market for a large van, the VW Crafter is well and truly worthy of your consideration. The new model is a big improvement on its predecessor, and there are multiple options available to choose from. And there’s only more to come, with RWD and AWD models on the horizon for 2019.

The 2019 Volkswagen Crafter carries a braked towing capacity of up to 3500 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

  • 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.
