2018 is proving an interesting year for the UD Trucks brand in Australia.

Volkswagen Australia dealerships have welcomed the all-new Volkswagen Crafter and the model looks likely to make its presence felt.
Boasting an additional 500kg maximum payload (now up to 5.5 tonnes), Volkswagen believes the new Crafter will put some pressure on the Australian light-duty truck market.
