Crafter wins Best Van at the Parkers New Car Awards 2019

20 September 2018

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ Crafter has beaten off stiff competition from newer rivals to be awarded the title of Best Van in the Parkers New Car Awards 2019 for the second consecutive year.

The awards are in their second year, with categories designed to reflect the requirements of Britain’s vehicle-buying public, and the winner is chosen based on the habits of the website’s 2.9+ million users actively involved in the buying process.

The vehicles were tested rigorously by the Parkers.co.uk team, which judged them on a combination of cost per month, value, quality, excellence, and fitness for purpose. Following the judging the panel declared the ‘exceptional’ Volkswagen Crafter the winner, saying: “It’s a class act and defeating tough competition from the newly revised Ford Transit Custom, a superb all-rounder, and the latest, incredibly hi-tech Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, is a highly impressive achievement that speaks volumes for the Crafter’s depth of talents.

“The Volkswagen’s supreme blend of usability, versatility, and comfort continues to shine through above all rivals, thanks not just to its sheer size but also its ease of driving and brilliantly thought-out cab.”

Parkers editor Keith Adams summed up: “The Crafter is a brilliantly complete product, and as well as being a supremely-talented large van, it’s also incredibly car-like to drive.”

Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Carl zu Dohna, said: “When we first saw the Crafter two years ago, we knew it was a class-leading product. The fact that it continues to beat off competition from new rivals and claim titles such as the prestigious Parkers Best Van award is a testament to its qualities. An increasing volume of new customers from large fleets to single-van operators are now driving and appreciating the Crafter, and we as a brand continue to strive to give them the best possible in-life experience through our dedicated network of Van Centres.”

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.
