I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

WHAT VAN ? - The VW Caddy & Amarok are highly recommended & the website wins too !

  • Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles extends winning streak at What Van? Awards
  • www.volkswagen-vans.co.uk claims Website of the Year Award 2017
  • Volkswagen Caddy and Amarok ‘highly commended’ by What Van? judges
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has finished a very successful 2016 with more awards, this time courtesy of What Van?. The brand’s fully-responsive website claimed the ‘Website of the Year’ Award and both the Volkswagen Caddy and Amarok were highly commended.
The website – www.volkswagen-vans.co.uk – includes comprehensive overviews of the complete range of vehicles offered by the brand, along with links to downloadable brochures and price lists. 
The easy-to-navigate site also offers customers the ability to book vehicle services online and gives full details of offers and finance options available.
Customers can also find information regarding the brand’s conversion programme and available accessories for each model.
The brand’s website has received a number of updates during 2016, including the launch of a new online configurator and the introduction of a revised used vehicle section.
The online configurator offers new vehicle customers the opportunity to define the specification of their new vehicle from the comfort of their own office without the need for a pile of brochures or multiple website pages open. 
The simple step-by-step feature helps the customer choose the right vehicle, specification and options using useful images and descriptions. 
Once completed, the system generates a unique code that can be saved, shared with friends or colleagues via email and social media or taken into a Van Centre for the sales team to make the purchase process more streamlined.
The new used vehicle website allows customers to search quickly and easily from around 2,000 vehicles online from across the entire network. 
Once the perfect vehicle is found, customers can access the contact details for the Van Centre that is selling it, or, new for 2016, ‘Reserve Online’ by making a deposit via PayPal or ‘Make an Offer’ – a simple to use contact facility to start a negotiation. 
James Dallas, editor of What Van? commented: “Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles was a clear winner of the ‘Website of the Year’ Award for 2017. 

The brand’s site is easy to use and offers a strong all-round package that competently covers a wide range of products and services.”

The What Van? Awards judges also highly commended the Caddy in the Small Van category and the Amarok in the Pick-up Category. Dallas added: “The Caddy features a commendably high level of safety features, rock solid build quality and first rate on-the-road performance, which impressed the judges. 

The Amarok offers blistering performance on road for a pick-up and is highly capable when venturing off the tarmac too.”
