Welcome to Vans of the Year 2007, What Van?’s annual verdict on what the manufacturers have to offer. Every year we sort the best from the rest and pick out the top light commercials on the market today. After all, choosing the right van for the job is vital these days for the success and smooth running of any large or small business.Standards are particularly high again this year as there has been a flurry of new product launches, but this can only be a good thing for the buyer.
The Awards represent our verdicts after extensive testing by the What Van? staff. At one time or another we’ve driven every light commercial vehicle on the British market, assessing them for drivability, comfort, performance, handling, refinement, safety, load area, economy and value for money.
The awards are split into 11 categories and out of all the section winners we select our overall supremo; the What Van? Van of the Year 2007.
There are also fleet-based awards decided upon by our sister magazine and web site BusinessVan, and these will be announced next January. congratulations to all the winners and keep up the good work.
