There’s a new big van and cab chassis offering in town with the arrival of the new-gen Volkswagen Crafter.
The new-generation van lands with an additional 500kg maximum GVM – now 5.5 tonnes.
There’s also an auto transmission available – an eight-speed unit that joins the existing six-speed manual box.
Comfort and tech lifted by the inclusion of Apple CarPlay/Android Auto too.
While safety is covered with the standard fitment of Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) and side, front and curtain airbags.
I got along to the Australian launch of new Volkswagen Crafter (held in New Zealand) and filed this video review…
