Volkswagen releases Luton version of the Crafter

  • VW announces a Luton version based on the long wheelbase Crafter chassis
  • Promises load volume of 17 cubic metres and internal load height of over 2.1m
  • Powered by 2.0-litre diesel with two outputs and priced from £32,470 (ex VAT)

VW has revealed a new addition to its Crafter line-up, the Luton.

The Classic Box Luton conversion sits on the long wheelbase Crafter and is powered by the 2.0-litre diesel engine.

There is a choice of two power outputs, 134bhp or 161bhp depending on requirements.

The German company reckons its load volume of 17 cubic metres is class-leading and the Luton boasts a load height of over 2.1m.

The load area is constructed using GRP sides and bulkhead fastened to a dip-painted and powder coated frame, and is ready finished for the addition of a tail-lift.

Standard features include a four-tier load restraint system, high strength shutter, rear foot step and reinforced bottom plank to protect against movement of unsecured loads.

The new Luton is part of VW’s new ‘Engineered-to-Go’ range and the company says it meets all the latest European standards as well as its own strict quality controls. That’s why Volkswagen is offering a three-year warranty on the Luton, which also covers any factory fitted add-ons.

The Volkswagen Crafter is on sale now priced at £32,470 (ex VAT) for the 134bhp version rising to £33,380 (ex VAT) for the higher powered 161bhp model. There is a contract hire deal too that costs from £299 a month.
