Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has claimed two top accolades at the What Van? Awards 2020, including best medium van for the T6.1 and used van of the year for the T6. These round off a successful year for the brand and set the T6.1 up for a successful launch in January.
The awards were judged by a panel of light commercial vehicle editors from What Van? as well as residual value specialists, industry consultants and journalists.
On presenting the T6.1 with its medium van of the year award, What Van? Editor James Dallas said: “The Transporter is a legendary van and with the T6.1 Volkswagen has improved an already outstanding product.
“This latest iteration boasts outstanding design features, the latest in engine technology and safety kit, low cost of ownership, the support of an excellent dealer network and, of course, an undeniably strong heritage.”
Proving its longevity, the T6 Transporter also retained its title as used van of the year. James Dallas said: “Enduring class, rock-solid build quality and unbeatable residual values make the Transporter a worthy winner in the used van category.”
Both awards were collected at a ceremony in London by Brand Director Carl zu Dohna. He said: “Receiving these awards from What Van? is not only a great way to end to the year but also a great way to start 2020 and embark on the launch of the T6.1.
“These awards are a great recognition of our strong products and – for customers – the dedicated support they receive from our UK network of Van Centres and authorised repairers. I’m proud to receive this recognition and look forward to working with customers old and new next year.”
