Less of a barn and more like a ute, the 2019 Volkswagen Crafter Cab Chassis gives the big VW Crafter series another feather in its cap.  Having a vehicle like the new Cab Chassis gives VW a new level of pulling power aimed at reeling in tradespeople and courier people that are after a vehicle that has load versatility, space and style.  The need a Crafter Cab Chassis and not a Crafter Van.  Owning a new VW Crafter will definitely help your business look the part.

Single and double cab chassis variants are offered, all with ride comfort and practicality in mind.  The new Volkswagen Crafter Cab Chassis in double cab form is a real asset for those businesses who need to lug a lot of gear out onto the work site, tow a trailer and provide roomy seating for three big burly guys in the second row.  Single Cab Chassis versions will cater to those who won’t need to carry more than two other occupants on the journey.  Interiors for both the single cab and double cabs are very VW, so much so that they are almost spitting images of the Golf or Polo.  This means that the feeling you get when hopping into the big crafter is unintimidating and car-like right from the get go.  This is a good thing.

Your unique driving position can be found easily with the steering wheel and driver’s seat multi adjustable.  Driver ergonomics is terrific, and the level of in-cabin storage as well as overall refinement it top shelf.  For a lot of people, the VW Crafter Cab Chassis will double as their office on wheels, so VW have done a great job of delivering what so many people need in a big load carrier.

As with all things electric it seems that the newer technology continues to be outdated within a couple of years.  Because these days we seem to be driving computers on wheels, there are numerous features that are updated with the introduction of the latest models.  Volkswagen’s Crafter Cab Chassis follows this arrangement and offers all the latest new technology that VW deem necessary for the Crafter series.  Good technology upgrades include features like Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, a clever work area/desk on the back-side of the middle seat back, electrically adjustable side mirrors, Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) is standard in all of the new Volkswagen Crafter range; front, side and curtain airbags also feature as standard; Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist complete the Crafter’s handy picture.

The 2019 Volkswagen Crafter Single Cab Chassis can be bought around the $50k mark for a front-wheel drive version of the latest Crafter.  Higher capacity variants feature rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive is an option but also come with around a $5k premium.  This isn’t a heck of a lot considering more power and better traction.  That said, the FWD models come with electronic driver aids that literally put the brakes on any hint of wheel spin or torque steer.

There’s a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel under the bonnet of every new Crafter Cab Chassis, the standard offering gets 103 kW of power and 340 Nm of torque.  For those looking to shift heavier loads, the gruntier bi-turbo version is available that gives you a substantial lift to 130 kW of power and 410 Nm of torque.  You get the option of an eight-speed automatic or a six-speed manual for linking either engine to the road.  While the standard 2.0-litre is more than adequate for most duties you will probably find the extra 70 Nm a big asset for when towing fully laden regularly.  The bigger torque and power rating keeps it in touch with some of the bigger engines used in your more traditional utes that come in the form of the Ranger, Navara and Hilux.  If you want VW’s formula of these smaller utes then the VW Amarok would be your go to vehicle.

However, if you need the space and towing capacity that these smaller utes can’t provide, then it’s hard to overlook the VW Crafter Cab Chassis models.  You’re limited to a maximum GVM of up to 5.5 tonnes (which is actually a 500 kg advancement on the previous model).  A head-to-head rival would have to be the Ford Transit equivalent.
