Crafter scooped top honours at the Commercial Vehicles show '18.

25 April 2018

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has scooped top honours once again at the Trade Van Driver awards by claiming Van of the Year and Best Large Panel Van for the Crafter. The Caddy was also named Best Small Van for owner-drivers and small fleet operators.

The Trade Van Driver Awards recognise the manufacturers, firms and people who, in the opinion of the judges, offer the very best to retail van buyers.

Commenting on the Crafter's performance, they said: ‘For the second year running, this van has been hailed as a double winner. New from the nuts and bolts upwards, it's a quantum leap forward over the old Crafter in terms of technology, build quality and safety and is set to ensure Volkswagen's continuing success among trade van buyers.'

In explaining the Caddy's success, the judges added: ‘With a new petrol alternative on offer and City Emergency Braking System as standard, the Caddy stands head and shoulders above the other offerings in the sector.'

The awards were presented to the Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Carl zu Dohna at the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham this week. He commented: ‘Since before the Crafter was launched, it has picked up a string of prestigious awards. The fact that it continues to do so, now it has been in the market for over a year, is a sign of its true talents. The strength of our entire product range, as well as our network and raft of aftersales services, means van operators can trust us to work with them to fulfil their commercial vehicle requirements.'

Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited are Appointed Representatives of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 571076). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of finance providers and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time.
