Craft your perfect business vehicle

Get the most out of your business with the Crafter Cab Chassis. Designed and built exclusively by Volkswagen and developed in collaboration with customers, this versatile and award-winning workhorse represents the new benchmark for design and safety standards in the segment. And for the first time ever, it is now available with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Safe, sound and connected.

The Crafter Cab Chassis is a workhorse, designed to put in long shifts. That’s why it boasts one of the most comprehensive suites of safety and driver assistance systems in its class, some of which are firsts for the sector. Add to that a huge array of connectivity options, and you’ve got everything you need to keep your business moving.

Front Assist with City Emergency Braking.
Stay On The Front Foot.

Using a radar sensor, Front Assist detects a possible collision with the vehicle in front. It will warn you and prepare the car for braking. If nothing changes, it applies the braking giving you a better chance of avoiding or minimising a collision. When you’re travelling below 30km/h, City Emergency Braking will prepare the braking if a collision is likely. If the driver doesn’t brake, the system will do it automatically.

Driver Fatigue Detection
A welcome wake-up call.

Exclusive to the Crafter range, this potentially life-saving system continually evaluates steering movements and other independent signals, and if fatigue is detected, warns the driver with an alarm, and recommends the driver take a break on the Multi-Function display.

Multi-Collision Brake
Lessen the chance of follow-on collisions.

Another feature exclusive to the Crafter, this state-of-the-art system uses two independent sensors to detect a collision, and applies the braking to slow down the vehicle, so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and braking lights are illuminated and remain activated. The driver can take over at any time.

Hill Hold Assist
It's all uphill from here, in a good way.

This intelligent feature allows you to make a hill start without the vehicle rolling back. If you’re on an incline greater than 5 per cent, the system will hold your car stationary for 1.5 seconds after the foot braking is released by temporarily locking the braking pressure.

Airbags
The best possible protection.

The Crafter Cab Chassis now features front side and curtain airbags for the driver and front passenger, giving you the optimal protection in the event of head-on or side impacts.

Electronic Differential Lock
Never lose control around corners.

When cornering, this valuable safety system responds to the load relief at the front wheel on the inside of a corner, which improves traction and reduces the tendency to understeer.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
Cruise on through.

The optional Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system lets you set the speed you want to travel and the gap you want to allow between you and the car in front. Using a radar sensor, the car then maintains your speed and your distance. In doing so it makes life easier for the driver, particularly on long journeys, and reduces the risk of exceeding the speed limit. Forms part of the optional Driver Assistance Package 'Chassis'.

Lane Assist
Stay on track.

Using a camera to monitor the markings on the road ahead, the optional Lane Assist helps keep you safe by working to prevent you leaving your lane unintentionally. If you start to leave your lane without indicating the system takes corrective steering action. If you still don’t respond a message will appear in the Multi-Function Display in conjunction with a warning tone. Forms part of the optional Driver Assistance Package 'Chassis'.
