Mercedes Sprinter

VW Crafter

There are three manufacturers in this category. IvecoMercedes and Volkswagen

I would like to say from the outset that the Iveco DailyMercedes Sprinter and VW Crafter are all excellent buses and each make is a good choice. I am a huge fan of the Volkswagen for many reasons.  The fuel consumption, drivability, service plan and the exceptional pricing
