Your second pair of eyes

The Crafter's innovative and intelligent driver assistance systems help to keep you and your cargo safe. From congested city multi-drop work to long-distance deliveries, our technology helps to reduce stress and increase safety on the road.

The Crafter comes with state-of-the-art driver assistance systems. Available as standard, Front Assist uses a 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.

Keeping you one step ahead

We know that driver and cargo safety is your top priority - that's why the Crafter comes with a suite of onboard assistance and monitoring systems to keep drivers safe and vans on the road.

Available as an option, Side Protection alerts you with visual and audible warnings if you're getting too close to other vehicles, pillars, walls or pedestrians.

Impressive loadability

The Crafter is the best in its class, featuring wide sliding doors that open up to 1,311 mm, and a high load compartment height of up to 2,196 mm. The Crafter is designed with space for shelving systems and is available with an optional universal floor for even more flexibility. We promise to work with you to tailor your Crafter and optimise the payload for your individual business requirements. With a wide range of payloads on offer from 735kg to 2,573kg, we are sure to find a solution to meet your needs.
