Fleet World Awards

Even if you are just purchasing the one vehicle for your business or personal use, what fleet buyers are thinking is a useful thing to know. The Fleet World Awards are seen by many as a helpful insight into the best value vehicles on the market. This years ceremony was recently held at the Royal Automobile Club in London's Pall Mall.

The Toyota Hilux is a make of pickup that has developed a reputation for being exceptionally tough, thanks in part to TV stunts. The reputation seems set to continue with the award for best pick up truck.

Both the Best Small Van and Best Large Van prizes were scooped by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles ever popular vans. Best Large Van went to the Crafter and Best Small Van went to the Caddy. The Caddy also landed the award for Best New Van, as the latest iteration of this pint-sized work horse is entirely reworked. Interestingly the car from which the Caddy was originally derived, the Golf, also picked up an award.

Fiat Professional’s Doblò Cargo van was awarded the title of Best Light Van. This is the second year running where it has picked up this prize. Citroën saw recognition for their fuel efficient LCV range with the Environmental Award.
