Volkswagen Van Choice: Crafter or Caddy?

A major consideration for buyers in the market for a new commercial van is size. Big or small. Both offer benefits depending on your business operation, what you need to transport and where you need to transport it to. Small can be more agile and fuel efficient and less expensive to purchase but limit the amount of cargo. Large offer more scope for larger loads but perhaps present issues around getting into tight loading docks.

At Jade Car Loans size is also an issue – the size of the interest rate we source in your commercial van loan offer. We work towards achieving the smallest, the lowest interest rate to ensure we deliver a cheap loan offer for whatever the size of the van you’re purchasing.

Appearing in the top selling commercial van lists over the past few years are two offerings from Volkswagen which give buyers a choice when it comes to size. The Volkswagen Crafter and the Volkswagen Caddy. Let’s check out how each may stack up for your daily work duties.

VW Caddy: Snapshot

The VW Caddy could be your new ‘silent’ business partner. This functional, agile and smart-looking van has the potential to tick a lot of boxes for many business operators. Florists who head to the markets and make customer deliveries; café and restaurant operators that insist on selecting and purchasing their fresh produce at the markets; sparkies and other small-scale tradies; general businesses that deliver orders direct to their customers; newsagents doing the daily paper run; city couriers that want a smaller vehicle to nab those prized and increasingly rare parking spots to speed up their daily schedule; and many others.

The Caddy offers a range of wheelbase and seating configurations across the model range and a number of customisable options to make your van truly suit your business needs. The short wheelbase is the standard Caddy Van with two seats and the longer wheelbase is the Maxi. There is also a 5 seater Crewvan available.

Although considered a small van, the Caddy has an impressive load capacity range of 3.2 cubic metres to 4.2 cubic metres with a payload range of 740-842 kg depending on wheelbase. This little gem is powered with a 1.4 litre petrol or 2.0 litre diesel engine.

Loading features provide convenience and VW offer a number of options such as extra sliding doors and a tailgate that lifts, to suit specific applications. The safety boxes are well and truly ticked with airbags and driver assist features and if you get stuck in traffic, the infotainment system should keep you entertained and connected.

VW Crafter: Top Seller

If you’re work tasks require something larger, perhaps the Crafter is better suited to your business. Appearing in the top selling lists, many business operators have already decided that this is the vehicle for them. Why? Check out just a few of the features:-

  • Available in medium, long and extra-long wheelbase models offering load volume from 9.9s cubic metres to 14.4 and right up to 18.43 cubic metres.
