Available in three lengths and three heights as a panel van, the Crafter also comes as a tipper truck, dropside, tow truck and refrigerated van, in single or double cab versions, and with front, rear or all-wheel drive.
It can carry a payload of up to 18.4 cubic metres or 1,454kg – up to six Euro pallets – and tow up to 3,500kg. As well as the rear doors, there's a sliding passenger-side door, whose impressive 1.3m-wide opening makes loading and access a doddle. There are tie-down points to keep cargo secure, and a full steel bulkhead separates the cabin from the load bay.
The Crafter’s cab is roomy, with a minimalist, easy to use dashboard, a high, commanding view of the road and an all-around quality feel. The steering wheel adjusts for rake and reach, and the driver's seat is comfortable on long journeys, with good back and leg support.
There is plenty of storage too, including door pockets, overhead shelves which can hold lever arch files, cup holders and a storage compartment in the passenger seat. In three-seater versions, the middle passenger seat folds down into a desk.
The punchy four-cylinder 2.0-litre diesel engine comes in either 101bhp, 120bhp, 138bhp or 175bhp guise; the latter, a twin-turbo, delivers a mighty 303lb-ft of torque.
The Crafter is enjoyable to drive and handles well for its size, with good grip and a comfortable ride. Smooth, light steering and – again for its size – a compact turning circle makes manoeuvring through narrow streets or heavy traffic easy, while on the motorway, engine and road noise are low.
Standard safety features include automatic braking after a crash to try to prevent further collisions, ABS with electronic stability control, crosswind assist, which uses the brakes to stabilise the van in side winds, and a driver alert feature which lets you know if it thinks you're getting tired. Other standard kit includes two 12-volt sockets for charging phones and laptops, a radio with Bluetooth, USB and MP3 connection.
