Ford and Volkswagen drive off with top prizes at Auto Express awards17 July 2014

Two commercial vehicle manufacturers picked up prizes at the Auto Express awards earlier this week.

Ford's Transit (pictured) was named Van of the Year – its Transit Custom won the same title last year – while Volkswagen won Best Pick-Up for its Amarok vehicle.

Of the Transit, Auto Express editor in chief Steve Fowler said: "Ford really has thrown absolutely everything at it and come up with one of the best vans we've ever seen."

Volkswagen's Amarok was awarded Best Pick-Up for the third year running. "The Amarok remains the best pick-up by some margin," said Fowler.

"Nothing comes close to its brilliant combination of carrying ability and car-like road manners, with the efficiency expected by demanding buyers. The fact it has the rugged looks required of a class-leading pick-up is the icing on the cake."
