Unlimited Mileage Warranty Makes Volkswagen Crafter Tough To Beat


To offer fleet and high mileage customers even better support and value for money, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has enhanced the three year warranty for its Crafter, the biggest van in the VW range, to an unlimited mileage warranty as standard. 

In addition, with three-years European roadside assistance also included, a full range of Euro V engines available, plus Volkswagen’s latest Contract Hire or Finance Lease offers from £299 a month (plus VAT and initial rental), this makes the Crafter one of the most competitive and affordable large vans in the 3,000 kg, 3,500 kg and 5,000 kg GVW sectors.

‘Improving the Crafter’s already excellent warranty and making it easy to afford gives it a competitive edge over its rivals,’ said Simon Elliott, Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.  ‘It is also typical of how we’re trying to help our customers manage their budgets and business in the current economic climate, without resorting to desperate price cutting, distressing the market and harming residual values,’ he continued.

The Contract Hire and Finance Lease offers for the Crafter are available from all participating Volkswagen Van Centres until 30 September, ahead of a price rise scheduled for 1 October.

A new range of BlueTDI engines using Volkswagen’s BlueMotion Technologies were recently introduced across the Crafter range. These offer improved fuel economy and lower emissions beyond the Euro V standard to officially class the Crafter as an EEV (Enhanced Environmental Vehicle).

The extensive Crafter range offers payloads from 1,011 kg up to 2,603 kg, load volumes from 7.5 m³ up to a massive 17.0 m³.  Retail prices currently range from £17,250 up to £30,510.
