Volkswagen Crafter Runner Features

Developed in collaboration with customers and packed with cutting edge technology previously unavailable in its class. The result is an advanced, practical and efficient van with a number of class leading features.



International Van of the Year 2017

The Crafter’s excellence has been recognised internationally with the prestigious International Van of the Year Award for 2017.

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is one of only two light commercial manufacturers to achieve back-to-back victories for the International Van of the Year, in the 25-year-history of this award, after last year’s success with the Transporter.


Volkswagen designed and built

The Crafter Runner has been designed and engineered 100% by Volkswagen and is quickly becoming the new benchmark in vans for its thoughtful approach to design, driver comfort, safety, driver assist technologies1 and engineering.

In addition, the Crafter Runner has been constructed in a new, purpose-built Volkswagen factory to ensure the highest standards of build quality and finish.

Front Assist with City Emergency Brake1

The Crafter Runner comes with state-of-the-art driver assistance systems. Front Assist uses radar to monitor your distance from the traffic in front, and alerts you if you are too close. City Emergency Braking reduces the chance of a collision by triggering emergency braking when it detects critical distances from other vehicles.
