Impressive details, sophisticated design

If you choose a body that needs extra power or cooling equipment, you can have your Crafter chassis fitted with extra electric generators or air conditioning compressors. And if you want to control your bodies with your smartphone, we can fit the chassis with a customer-specific function control unit.

Your second pair of eyes

Crafter chassis cab makes parking easy with its innovative and intelligent parking assistance system. Electromechanical Servotronic steering comes as standard. Optional features include Trailer Assist manoeuvring, Rear Traffic Alert and Steering Assistance.

Automatic post-colision braking

This state-of-the-art system helps to prevent follow-on collisions. When the airbag sensor detects a collision, the brakes are automatically applied to avoid or lessen the impact of a secondary collision. The hazard and brake lights are illuminated, and the driver can take control at any time.

As standard on all Volkswagen vans.​​

Lane assist

Available as an option, Lane Assist countersteers the vehicle if the driver unintentionally drifts from a lane. The system also emits audible and visual warnings via the multi-function display to alert the driver of danger.

Park assist

This optional extra aids positioning into parking spaces. When reverse gear is engaged, the vehicle automatically assumes control of the steering. All the driver has to do is operate the clutch, accelerator and brake.

Trailer assist

Available as an option, Trailer Assist automatically manoeuvers the vehicle if fitted with a trailer during parallel and reverse parking.

 

Rear traffic alert

Available as an option, Rear Traffic Alert helps by emitting an audible warning when reversing out of a parking space if another vehicle is getting too close. If the driver fails to respond, the system intervenes and applies braking to help avoid a collision.

High beam assist

The optional high-beam assistant automatically dips the headlights for oncoming vehicles or vehicles travelling ahead before they're dazzled. When activated, the system automatically switches on the high-beam headlights when the vehicle is travelling above 37 mph in complete darkness.

Electromechanical servotronic steering

Fitted as standard, Electromechanical Servotronic steering provides a speed-sensitive operation with active return. This improves the steering sensation around the mid-point, providing a level of steering precision previously nonexistent in commercial vehicles. 



Stay safe and secure

Crafter chassis cab comes packed with features to help you stay safe on the road, with integrated cornering lights, electronic stabilisation and hill assist systems as standard.

Driver airbag

Standard feature giving you the best possible protection in the event of a head-on collision. A side/head airbag is also available as an option.

Seatbelt warning

If seatbelts aren't fastened, the seatbelt warning reminds the driver and the front passenger to fasten their belts with a visual warning when the engine is started, and an audible warning after setting off.

Driver alert system

The driver alert system is fitted as standard. It warns the driver with visual and audible warning signals to recommend a break from driving as soon as it registers behaviour that indicates tiredness.

Road sign display (not illustrated)

This optional system detects road signs and informs the driver of any driving restrictions.​

Hill assist systems

Hill descent assist (not illustrated)

The optional Hill Descent Assist system lets you drive down slopes in a safe, controlled way by adjusting the engine speed and applying the brakes if necessary.

Hill start assist (not illustrated)

Hill Start Assist is fitted as standard and stops your vehicle from rolling back and makes handling easier when starting up on uphill slopes.

Cruise control system

At 19 mph and above, the optional cruise control system maintains the set speed through uphill and downhill inclines.

Fog lights with integrated static turning light

These lights improve visibility in adverse weather conditions. The headlight on the inside of the curve illuminates the roadside when turning.

Tyre pressure monitoring system

The optional tyre pressure monitoring system displays the current pressure for each tyre and warns you if it's not in range.



Electronic stabilisation programme
Stopping you from under- and over-steering through targeted braking of the individual wheels. Comes as standard.

Anti-lock braking system (ABS)
Stops your wheels from locking, maintaining manoeuvrability. Comes as standard.

Your comfortable workspace

The optional ergoComfort suspension seat, smart storage options and range of added extras make the generous driver’s cab a comfortable workspace for frequent drivers.

Extensive seating options

Choose from five different seating options for the driver and passengers in the Crafter chassis cab.

Starting with the basic seat with backrest and length adjustment, the optional comfort seat adds height and seat depth adjustment, an armrest (on the inner side) and 2-way lumbar support.

The comfort seat plus also includes a second armrest and 4-way electrical lumbar support.

And the optional ergoComfort suspension seat and ergoActive suspension seat with heater and massage function complete the lineup.

Ergo suspension seat

Hard work deserves a comfortable ride. The optional ergoComfort suspension seat cushions any bumps and jolts in the road, has a 20-point adjustment system for custom comfort, and can even be fitted with heaters and a massage function.

Air conditioning and heating systems

With its optional and easy to control air conditioning system you can enjoy a comfortable climate with just the push of a button. It can even cool the glove compartment so you always have a cold drink on hot days. And in the colder months, the optional programmable auxiliary heater keeps you warm inside with clear, de-iced windows.
