Performance and solid build in VW vans
Here at commercialvehicle.com we found that the VW Amarok is a quality product that gave the market a decent alternative to the usual pick-ups available.
The Amarok is growing in popularity and we are seeing increasing numbers of them on the UK’s roads.
However, our team’s praise was reserved for the VW Caddy and the VW Crafter which we said were excellent additions to the van market.
The VW Caddy in particular is still one of the best handling small vans available thanks to its solid build and is reliable and cheap to run.

We also reserved praise for the VW Crafter which is the firm’s largest van but it’s also the best that they make.
Available in a range of models the VW Crafter is impressive to drive and comfortable over long distances.
