All-new Crafter named Best Van at Parker New Car Awards 2018
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ newly developed Crafter is yet again in the limelight after winning the award for ‘Best Van’ at the Parkers New Car Awards 2018.
The Parkers Awards have been shaped by a detailed analysis of Parkers.co.uk traffic and reflect the views of Britain’s car buying public. Winners were chosen based on the buying habits of the website’s 2.9+ million users* actively involved in the buying process.
The all-new Crafter, which went on sale in May, has picked up a host of awards since it was revealed last September. Built at an all-new factory in Wrzesnia, Poland, and designed from the bottom up to meet the needs of van operators, it is available with a variety of different powertrains, drivetrains and capacities, offering maximum flexibility, and with a comprehensive suite of innovative technologies. As on all Volkswagen vans, the Crafter comes as standard with autonomous emergency braking and automatic post-collision braking systems – a first in the van sector.
Even before launch the new Crafter had picked up a number of prestigious awards. In September 2016 it succeeded the Transporter to be being named International Van of the Year, as voted for by a panel of commercial vehicle journalists from 24 European countries. It was also named Best New Van and Van of the Year by leading commercial vehicle publication Van Fleet World in February 2017, and picked up the Vans A2Z accolades of Best Large Van and Van of the Year in March 2017. In July 2017 it was named Auto Express’s Van of the Year for 2017.
