Volkswagen Crafter Philippines Overview

Made by German car marque Volkswagen, the Crafter is a 9-seater, high-ceiling van that was first introduced in 2006. This model replaced one of the brand's longest-running vehicles, the LT van which had been around since the 1970s. The Crafter derived its looks from another German van created by Mercedes called the Sprinter. The Crafter is one of the most spacious vehicles in the market today, with 6 captain seats laid out individually and a 32-inch Samsung TV. To accommodate your GPS needs, it conveniently features a touchscreen with navigation capabilities. In terms of safety, the Crafter features an electric sliding door that can easily be controlled by the driver and passengers. The van also has window blinds to add an extra layer of exclusivity. Its diesel engine makes it more economical for long drives, adding to the convenience of its physical and interior features.


Volkswagen Philippines launched the Crafter 35 L manual transmission model in the country in 2006. This is the only model and variant available in the Philippines. It is currently sold in two colors: blue and gray.

The Volkswagen Crafter is primarily catered towards those who are frequently on the road for business or leisure. Its spacious cabin is built to comfortably accommodate larger groups and heavy luggage. It is currently marketed starting at P3,000,000.

Great for utilitarian duties, as well as carrying people


The Volkswagen Crafter sports the conventional design of a typical van with two front doors and two electric sliding doors for passengers. The van’s snout is significantly protruding to add more interior space. On the sides are muscle lines that add definition to the van’s huge, angular body.

The Crafter rides on 16-inch steel wheels. In front is a dominating, large black grille with the signature VW logo. Halogen headlamps are stocked vertically, placed adjacent to the grille.


Heading inside the Crafter, its dashboard and interiors are simple and straightforward which are typical for classic Volkswagen vehicles. However, one of its primary selling points is the 6 leather-clad captain seats with separate armrests, individually laid out for immensely comfortable traveling. Seats are strategically arranged to have a lot of space for legroom. Much to its passengers’ convenience, there are ample storage spaces in all four rows of seating that can accommodate luggage. Uniquely, it has 32-inch Samsung TV for entertainment purposes.
