Volkswagen CRAFTER 2021

Our most recent review of the 2021 Volkswagen Crafter resulted in a score of 7 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Senior Editor Matt Campbell had this to say at the time: If you need space and size, but don’t want a van, then the VW Crafter cab-chassis could be a terrific option for your business. With so many variants and derivatives to choose from, there’s one for just about every user case.

  • 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.

Volkswagen CRAFTER 2021 Accessories

If you really want to know about accessories available for the VW Crafter, you best head to the VW site - there are literally hundreds of optional fit items available for the model, whether you choose the van or cab-chassis version.

Standard equipment is decent, though, with an 8.0-inch touchscreen media unit with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, vinyl flooring cloth seats (2+1 layout), steering wheel with cruise and audio controls, air conditioning, power windows and mirrors, six-way adjustable driver's seat, and rake and reach adjust steering.

There are halogen headlights and daytime running lights (DRLs), 16-inch steel wheels, and a factory-fit alloy tray with tie-downs.

Volkswagen CRAFTER 2021 Seats

Seating for the Volkswagen Crafter depends on the configuration you choose and your preferences. You can have it as a two-seater as an option, with individual suspension seats at the front. Or you can stick with the standard three-seat layout for single-cab and van models. Then there's the double cab-chassis, which comes with seven seats as standard (three up front, four in the back). And there are Minibus options for the Crafter range now, too, so choose between 12 seats (legally drivable on a regular licence) or 15 seats if you really need it.

Volkswagen CRAFTER 2021 Interior

The interior of the Volkswagen Crafter is the sort of space that pragmatists will love. There's overhead storage compartments, there are three dash-top folder holders for your work documentation, and the door pockets are massive. There is a shelf section that runs across the dashboard with cup holders at the edges, and there are additional bottle holders on the outer edges of the dash top, too. Plus there's a storage spot below the two-seat bench, allowing you to store/hide items away from sight. 

It may be work-focused but there are also some nice amenities, including an 8.0-inch touchscreen media system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus there are materials and finishes - not to mention controls, knobs and dials - that all feel up to spec when it comes to wearing the VW badge.
