“From the moment you open the door and jump in (like a truck) you can feel the difference. The seating position is more relaxed and feels a lot more spacious around the driver. The digital centre dash board display screen at first glance looks like it says a lot, and it does…my first drive in the city and the van audibly warned me to observe the traffic regulations, pointed out high-crash areas, red lights, and (old, unused) fixed speed camera placements.” – AA New Zealand

“Volkswagen’s comfort-focused new Crafter van gains a wider range, an outstanding interior and a host of safety kit… The key area where this Volkswagen panel van has extended its on-paper appeal is in the breadth of its range. The core panel van models offer three roof heights and three load lengths but these are joined by 5-seater double cab models as well as dropside and tipper trucks. This gives a total of 69 different configurations, but there’s more options than just body style. The Crafter is now available with front, rear or 4Motion four-wheel drive, giving an even broader array of choice to operators.” – Auto Express

With advanced connectivity options like the ‘Hey Mercedes’ voice assistant and MBUX multimedia touch-screen with 3D mapping, you can stay in control while your eyes stay on the road.

“Speaking from a car-driving point of view, my biggest takeaway from a few days with the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter (apart from childlike delight at driving a van and playing fast and loose with Loading Zones) was how much high-end technology is packed into it. You expect light vans to have the latest in diesel tech, but the Sprinter also has a lot of driver-assistance and infotainment equipment that you might normally associate with a high-end car.” – Driven.co.nz

“There’s no doubt the Peugeot Expert is extremely refined and comfortable on the road, and we reckon it vies with the Mercedes Vito for class-leading driver comfort. In the Peugeot’s case, it’s thanks to the car-derived underpinnings, and the fact that PSA engineers designed the Expert knowing they had to make the full MPV version ride convincingly on the same running gear.” – Auto express UK

Toyota Fuel economy: *Fuel/energy consumption, emission, and driving range figures are based on tests under controlled conditions. WLTP figures are based on converted NEDC test results and are for comparison purposes only. Actual results will vary depending on factors such as vehicle usage and operating conditions. You should not expect that the exact fuel/energy consumption, emission and driving range figures will be achieved in real world driving conditions. In order to provide you the latest model information, the specification listed is on a provisional basis and therefore may be subject to change. Please contact your local Toyota Store for more information.

Electric range: WLTP is the new official EU test used to calculate standardised fuel consumption and CO₂ figures for passenger cars. It measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile. Figures are shown as a range under WLTP testing measures. The most economical figures refer to the most efficient/lightest set of options. A vehicle’s actual fuel consumption may differ from that achieved in such tests and these figures are for comparative purposes only.
