Best Van Safety: Volkswagen AEB

Judging comment:

“All too often, advances in vehicle safety are available as optional extras, only to be ignored by many buyers. By making autonomous emergency braking (AEB) standard on all of its new vans, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has ensured that all drivers benefit from what Thatcham Research calls ‘the most significant development in vehicle safety since the seat belt’. Not only does AEB have the potential to reduce the number and severity of accidents, it has also been proven to cut third party injury insurance claims by 45%.”
