Volkswagen have added their 4MOTION capability to the popular Crafter van and for the reasonable price of around $4500 instead of $10,000 plus fpr some of its competitors.
The 4MOTION is available in all body types including the single and dual cab chassis variants. In addition to a long list of standard and optional features the 4MOTION variants can be optioned with a mechanical diff lock and hill descent control.
I liked my time in the Crafter, the driving position was comfortable, there is a plethora of storage areas, including secure under seat storage and for a bigger van it drives remarkably well. The Crafter runs a 130kW/410Nm 2.0 litre turbo diesel engine, an 8-speed automatic transmission and 4MOTION drives all four wheels.
The 4MOTION variants of the Volkswagen Crafter range are on sale now priced from $57,590.Plus the usual additional costs.
