The Parkers New Car Awards, now in the 3rd year, look to reflect the requirements of Britain’s vehicle-buying public.
In the large van category, judges were looking for something hassle-free and efficient to drive with plenty of load space and payload capacity, as well as a comfortable and practical cab.
Recognised for ease of use, great drivability, the Crafter took home the award for the 3rd year running having impressed the judges with its ease of operation. They commented that it is “incredibly good to drive, offers great real-world efficiency and has large load volumes, with a cab environment that’s second to none.”
Earlier this month the Crafter also scooped the Large Panel Van of the Year accolade at the Commercial Fleet Awards 2019.
Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Carl zu Dohna, said: “The Crafter is going from strength to strength, with a growing customer base and reputation for great quality, drivability and usability. This is backed up by awards such as the ones received this month from prestigious titles such as Parkers and Commercial Fleet.
