The brilliant MAN TGE scoops Parkers 2021 Best Large Van Award
The MAN TGE has been crowned 2021 Best Large Van at the Parkers Awards, announced yesterday (26th October)
Keith Adams, editor of Parkers.co.uk said: "Now a two-times winner of the Parkers Best Large Van award, the MAN TGE sets impressively high standards yet to be reached by its rivals. MAN is unique in this sector for offering truck levels of aftersales care and assistance. It's a recent addition to the market that's built in the Volkswagen Group's state-of-the-art factory in Poland alongside the VW Crafter. The TGE is brilliant to use - it's good to drive for such a large vehicle, offers great real-world efficiency and has impressive load volumes, with a cab environment that's second-to-none."
The Parkers Awards continue to reflect the views of Britain's van-buying public, taking into account the vehicle's drive cycles and the many customer wants and needs. Detailed analysis of Parkers.co.uk traffic shows that 77% of site visitors are researching multiple vehicles, basing buying decisions on monthly budgets, the total cost of ownership and value.
Daniel Holbein, Head of MAN Truck & Bus Van products in the UK, said: "We're absolutely delighted to receive both this Award and the recognition from Parkers, now for the second year running. In a market sector bustling with both innovation and choice the TGE was clearly singled out by Parkers for its impressive high standards, truck levels of aftersales care and assistance, and its high levels of driver comfort.
"We are also thrilled that our Customer First service promise has clearly caught Parkers' eye, this underpins our commitment to our customers ensuring we keep their vehicles on the road and earning at all times."
Each of the shortlisted models were tested independently and rigorously by Parkers expert reviewers, analysing cost-per-month, value, quality, overall excellence and fitness for purpose.
The MAN TGE beat off stiff competition from both Ford Transit and the Mercedes Sprinter.
