Volkswagen Crafter pricing details have been released ahead of the new model reaching customers later this summer.

Order books for the Volkswagen Crafter Commerce and Volkswagen Crafter Commerce Plus models are now open with first customer deliveries expected in mid-August.

Prices will start from £45,660 for the Commerce trim and £52,704 for the Commerce Plus.

New standard driver assist systems on the Crafter included Front Assist (Autonomous Emergency Braking including Cyclist and Pedestrian Monitoring), Lane Assist, Dynamic Road Sign Display, a speed limiter and rear parking sensors – also known as Park Distance Control.

Travel Assist will be available as an option for the Crafter for the first time, as will Emergency Assist. 

The exterior of the van remains largely unchanged but the interior has been revamped with a new dashboard. This now includes more connectivity options.

On the inside of the new Crafter there is a now a new Composition Colour 10.4-inch infotainment screen with App-Connect, an integrated eSIM and mobile online services.

The Crafter also gets wireless smartphone charging and USB-C connections and there’s the option of a Discover Media satellite navigation system which adds a larger 12.9-inch colour touch-screen.

There’s a redesigned steering wheel, and the electronic handbrake switch and gear selector for the optional automatic gearbox have also been redesigned and relocated.

Controls for the light functions, the heating and ventilation controls and all the air vents have been changed too.

The Crafter will be available in three body lengths and four roof heights. Commerce trim models can be specified as a medium wheelbase with a high roof or long wheelbase with a high roof configurations. The Commerce Plus models will come as either a Maxi long wheelbase with high roof, while there’s also the option for special orders of the low roof and super high roof options.

A total of three gross weight weights will be available with CR30 (3,000kg GVW) models available exclusively with front-wheel drive and a 140PS 2-litre TDI engine paired to a six-speed manual gearbox.

The CR35 (3,500kg GVW) adds the option of a 177PS 2-litre TDI with either front-wheel drive or 4MOTION four-wheel drive.

CR35 can also be ordered with a middle power outputs of 163PS 2-litre TDI powering the rear wheels. This engine and drivetrain layout is also the only option for the Crafter CR50 (5,000kg GVW) which can also have the optional eight-speed automatic gearbox.
