Alfa Romeo
http://www.alfaromeo.co.uk/

A well done site with an easy to use configurator that has lots of options once you've configured the vehicle. Used inventory is online but new inventory is not.

Pros:
Easy to use configurator. Good model specific information and easily accessible pricing information. Once you've configured your vehicle you can save it to a virtual garage, send it to a friend, send the details to a dealer or print the configuration. You can search used Alfa Romeos by entering your post code.

Cons:
Although contacting a dealer is an option when you've finished the configuration the details of the configuration don't seem to be included in the email to a great extent. There is no turnaround guarantee given when you request more information and you have to supply quite a bit of personal information on a non-secure form.

Aston Martin
http://www.astonmartin.com/

This horrible falsh laden site does have a configurator but requires you to install a proprietary piece of software (2.9MB!) to make it work and the configurator is sluggish in the extreme. Used inventory is online but new is not.

Pros:
The configurator is very graphically oriented and is easy to use. Used inventory is online.

Cons:
The configurator is sluggish and doesn't include any pricing information whatsoever. Once you've configured the vehicle you can only review and print the information - you can't request a quote, save the configuration or send the configuration details to a friend.

How to:

  • Locate a dealer
    Select United Kingdom in the Country box and then choose a city or region from those listed in the Location box. Click on the Find button when you are done selecting your location.

  • Search for a used car
    Select your country in the box on the left (although United Kingdom seems to be the only 'country' displayed). On the next screen search by model, bodystyle, colour, price and mileage.

Audi UK
http://www.audi.co.uk/newcars/index.jsp

Another flash and QuickTime-laden, visually overwhelming site that is sluggish and difficult to navigate. However the configurator has improved since previous reviews and used inventory is online but new inventory is not.

Pros:
The configurator is still a little too complicated and visually busy for me but it works (albeit slowly). Once you've completed configuring your vehicle you can print the configuration or send it as an e-card. Used inventory is online and searchable by post code.

Cons:
New inventory is not online. The ability to save your configuration or request a price quote from a dealer is not working at the moment as 'My Audi' is under construction. As I've been away I'm not sure how long this has been the case but the configurator prices say 'as of December 2006' so I suspect that like many Internet revamps this one is taking longer than expected. Very sneaky not to mention any dates anywhere. This loses the site points.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    Select your Model, external colour and fuel type in the drop down lists underneath the Configurator heading in the far left hand column just below the main picture on the page. Alternatively click on the Configurator link in the column on the right hand side of the page (second heading below the site search box). Then just follow the steps.

  • Search for a used car
    Click on the Used Car Locator link and search for a used vehicle by entering your post code and clicking on the model you are interested in.

  • Locate a dealer
    Select your closest Audi dealership from an alphabetical list of Audi dealerships (by dealership name with postcode indicated at the end of each entry).

BMW UK
http://www.bmw.co.uk/

Fair overall site although it all seems very sluggish on my computer. Navigation is a bit confusing and there is more flash used on the site than I prefer. There is a configurator but its functionality is limited once you've completed the configuration. Used inventory is online but new is not. Note that I had to use Internet Explorer rather than Firefox to get this site to work properly. Disappointing.

Pros:
A very easy to use configurator that shows you your progress through the process and is nimble and quick. When you've finished configuring the vehicle you can print, compare (only with another previously made configuration) or save the configuration. Used inventory is online and easily searchable by post code.

Cons:
You can not email the configured details to a local dealership for a quote request. In fact there doesn't seem to be a wait to request a quote at all. I used to be able to request a quote using the Virtual Centre but even that seems to have disappeared.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    On the main page select a model using the Quick model selector in the top left hand corner of the page. On the next screen click on the Build your BMW button in the far right hand bottom corner of the page. Choose model, exterior and interior finishes and optional equipment on the next series of pages.

  • Search for a used car
    Use the National search in the bottom left hand area of the page. Choose series, bodystyle and maximum price (optional) from the drop down lists and then enter your postcode. Alternatively you could used the advanced search (click on the Advanced search button just below the Search now button) if you'd like to specify more criteria.

  • Locate a dealer
    Locate a BMW dealer by entering your postcode, town/city or dealer name in the center column (under the Dealer search heading) on the page and then clicking on the Search button.

Steer Clear!Chrysler
http://www.chrysler.co.uk/

Horrible, sluggish flash-laden site. Sigh - am I the only person left online who goes to websites for information rather than to be impressed (not) by the graphics' talents of the site's designers? And it is impossible to believe that in 2007 there is still a manufacturer out there who doesn't have a configurator on their site! On the positive side (and this is the only positive point I can find) the site does have used inventory online.

Pros:
Used inventory is searchable by using your post code.

Cons:
There is no configurator on this site (WOW!) - that about says it all in my opinion. Come on Chrysler - get with the program. New inventory is not online.

How to:

  • Search for a used car
    Enter your postcode or town and then work through the subsequent screens indicating your model, derivative, price range, fuel type, transmission, maximum age and maximum mileage.

  • Locate a dealer
    Select a dealer from a full list or enter your postcode or town in the search box.

Fiat
http://www.fiat.co.uk/

Another sluggish site - I am beginning to think everyone in the UK must have super fast Internet access and top of the line computers since almost every UK site I visit is flash-laden, complex and graphic heavy. There is a configurator on this site although requesting a quote doesn't seem to be an option once you're done. New inventory is not online although used vehicles can be found using the Fiat site.

Pros:
The configurator is easy to use and relatively quick. When you are done configuring the vehicle you can send the configuration to a friend, find out about finance, save the configuration or print it out. Used inventory is online and searchable by post code.

Cons:
You can't send the configuration details to a dealer for a quote request nor can you view new inventory online. If you do request more information from a dealer you have to supply to much personal information on a non-secure form.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    Go to the 'Showroom' box in the middle of the left-hand column of the main page. Hover over the right triangle in the Please choose a model box and this will cause the various models available to scroll through the box. When you see the model you want click on it - on the next page select the version you want and click on the Continue button.

  • Search for a used car
    Enter your postcode and click on Search.

  • Locate a dealer
    Search for a Fiat dealer by dealer name, place name or postcode or region.

Ford
http://www.ford.co.uk/

The configurator is okay though a bit sluggish with its reloading and 'fade to fuzzy' between each step. Once you've finished configuring the vehicle you have a few choices of what to do with the configuration. Used inventory is online but new inventory is not.

Pros:
Once you've configured your vehicle you can view a summary, save the configuration or calculate payments. Used inventory is easily searchable by your post code.

Cons:
It doesn't seem possible to send your configured vehicle details to a dealer for a quote. The page where you supply your personal details should you wish to contact a dealer is not secure and no turnaround guarantee is given. You can't print out the configuration details or email them to a friend. The configurator is somewhat slow and annoying with its 'loading' dialog box appearing between each step. New inventory is not online.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    Click on the Configure link underneath the graphic for the model you are interested in.

  • Search for a used car
    Use the Quick search or Advanced search depending on the number of criteria you wish to search on.

  • Locate a dealer
    To find a dealer simply enter your post code in the box in the top right hand corner of the page and click on the 'go' button.

Steer Clear!Honda [UK]
http://www.honda.co.uk/car/

Arrrgghh! Another site that makes me crazy. First I'm confronted with a page tthat takes for ever to load and has goofy tabs with sideways text running vertically on the edge of the page. Then once I choose a model it's more waiting for a slow-loading page. There is now a configurator but it is limited in its functionality once you're done building your Honda.

Pros:
There is a simple and relatively quick and easy to use configurator and used inventory is online.

Cons:
Once you've configured your chosen Honda you can only email or print the configuration. You can't request a quote or save your configured details.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    Wait (go make a cup of tea) for the page to load and then choose your model by clicking on the appropriate graphic. Then click on the 'Build your X' button (where X is the name of the model) and work through the steps of the configurator.

  • Search for a used car
    Search for a used Honda by specifying your desired model, body style, engine, maximum price, postcode and distance you are willing to travel to look for a car.

  • Locate a dealer
    On this visually noisy and flash-laden site (what possesses these car companies - their IT budget must be far too large) click on the Find a showroom tab which runs vertically on the right hand side of the screen. You can then search for a dealer by postcode, street or place name.

Jaguar UK
http://www.jaguar.com/uk/en/home.htm

Jaguar has improved its configurator and offers quite a few options once you've configured the vehicle. Used inventory is online but new inventory is not.

Pros:
The configurator is easy to use and relatively quick on a high speed connection. Once you've finished the configuration you can print it, request a test drive or locate a dealer. Best of all the configurator has been improved by adding in prices of the options you choose and when you request information from a dealer your personal data is collected on a secure form. A neat feature of the site is the used car search tool which is creative, innovative and downright fun to use. You can even search by colour (by excluding colours you DON'T want) and what is coolest is that the number of vehicles remaining that match your search criteria, as you move through the process, is shown in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. Fantastic!

Cons:
Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way to transfer your configured vehicle details to a dealer. New inventory is not online.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    Pick your model and then work through the steps.

  • Search for a used car
    Select a model and then use the boxes on the left and the headings (i.e. Price From) in the circle around the vehicle to set your criteria - don't forget the colour wheel in the top right hand corner.

  • Locate a dealer
    Locate a dealer by searching by postcode, dealer name or town. Alternatively click on the View all dealers link to see a list of all the dealers in the UK which you can sort by dealer name or town/city.

Fairly attractive site that is marred by the fact that it doesn't have a configurator - wow! Only positive point on this site is that used inventory is online (new inventory is not online).

Pros:
Used inventory is searchable by using your post code.

Cons:
There is no configurator on this site (WOW!) - that about says it all in my opinion. Come on Jeep - get with the program. New inventory is not online.

How to:

Land Rover UK
http://www.landrover.com/gb/en/Vehicles/overview.htm

I find this very hard to believe but it seems as if the configurator has been removed from the Land Rover site. Amazing! Used inventory is online but new inventory is not.

Pros:
With the removal of the configurator the only positive aspect of this site is that used inventory is online and searchable using your postcode.

Cons:
No configurator - what more can I say!

How to:

  • Search for a used car
    Hover over the model you are interested in and select search or advanced search. Alternatively you could use the price search or registration search links on the right hand side of the page.

  • Locate a dealer
    To locate a dealer just put your postcode in the box in the top right hand corner of the screen and click on the arrow to the right of the box.

A poor site with no configurator and no new inventory online. It's only saving grace - and that's not saying much - is that used inventory is online.

Pros:
You can search for used vehicles using your postcode.

Cons:
There is no configurator on this site and new inventory is not online. Pathetic.

How to:

  • Search for a used car
    Enter your postcode or town, model you are looking for and price range. There is an advanced search that will allow you to specify more criteria.

No configurator and no new inventory online. Used inventory is online and this is the only aspect of the site that saves it from being a complete zero.

Pros:
You can search for a used Lotus using your postcode as a search criteria.

Cons:
There is no configurator on the Lotus site and new inventory is not online.

How to:

  • Search for a used car
    Click on the Used Car Locator link (where it says click here in the last line on the page), enter your postcode and click the Submit button and then specify search criteria to search on.

  • Locate a dealer

Mazda
http://www.mazda.co.uk/

The only bright spot on this site is a fairly good used car locator. Otherwise it is a dismal failure in my eyes - no new inventory online and, more importantly, no vehicle configurator.

Pros:
You can search for a used Mazda by distance from your postcode.

Cons:
No configurator and no new inventory online.

How to:

  • Search for a used car
    Click on the graphic that represents the model you are looking for. Then specify exactly which derivative within the model (multiple selections allowed), your postcode, distance to search within, price range, age and trim. An advanced search with more criteria is available.

  • Locate a dealer
    Search for a dealer by name, town or postcode.

Mercedes-Benz UK Passenger Cars
http://www.mercedes-benz.co.uk/pc/

A good configurator although a bit tedious with its reloading between each step. You've got a few choices once you've configured the vehicle. Used inventory is online but new inventory is not.

Pros:
The configurator is okay, although, as mentioned above the reloading after each step is a bit irritating. Once you've finished the configuration you can print it, save it, compare it to another vehicle or submit it to a dealer (maybe on the latter). Used inventory is available online and searchable by postcode.

Cons:
I did have quite a bit of trouble with certain options within the configurator (well actually after the configuration is finished). Clicking on the 'Your contact' tab at the top right took me to a form where I could contact a retailer but it is not clear whether the configured vehicle details - off to the right of the form - are being submitted. The form is not secure and asks for perhaps a bit too much personal info and no turnaround guarantee is given. New inventory is not online.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    Either select a model directly using the select model box (bottom choice) or look at an overview of all models.

  • Search for a used car
    Select your model, body style, fuel type, transmission, price range and mileage desired. Enter your postcode and click on the Search button.

  • Locate a dealer
    Find a dealer by postcode, town, retailer name or by clicking on a map of the UK.

The official website of Peugeot Motor Company
http://www.peugeot.co.uk/

A great site with a couple of small deficiencies. There is a snappy but simple configurator with lots of options when you've finished 'configuring' and used inventory is online. Unfortunately new inventory is not online.

Pros:
The configurator is quick and easy to use and is really well documented and easy to understand. Once you've configured a vehicle you can print the configuration, save it to a virtual garage, send it to a friend or request a quote from a dealer. You can search used vehicles by distance from your postcode. There is a neat feature in the used car locator that allows you to create an email alert for a specific vehicle used that you are looking for.

Cons:
It is not completely clear to me that when you submit the quote request to a dealer the configuration details are going with your email submission - I wish that sites would offerr you the chance to preview what is being sent to the dealer. No turnaround guarantee is given. New inventory is not available online.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    From the main page select Build your own car or Build your own van from the list of links underneath the Showroom heading.

  • Search for a used car
    Select your model, body style, maximum price and input your postcode and click on the Search button. There is also an advanced search with more criteria.

  • Locate a dealer
    Click on the Dealer locator link in the top right hand area of the page and then search by post code, dealer name or town/city.

Porsche AG
http://www.porsche.com/uk/

The configurator is fairly easy to use although quite sluggish (even the lower-bandwidth recommended 2D version). Once you've configured the vehicle you do have quite a few options. Used inventory is online but new is not.

Pros:
The configurator works okay and you can print, save or forward the configuration to a dealer when you are done. Used inventory is online and searchable by your postcode.

Cons:
It doesn't seem as if the configured vehicle details are actually being sent to the dealer. New inventory is not available online.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    From the main page simply click on the Build Your Porsche button and then select either the 2D or 3D version. On the next screen select your model and take it from there.

  • Search for a used car
    Select the country you wish to search in from the drop down list. On the next page select your model, derivative, body type, price range and registration year and enter your postcode (leave blank to search nationally).

  • Locate a dealer

Renault UK
http://www.renault.co.uk/

A well-done site with a really excellent configurator that is easy to use, fairly nimble and offers lots of options both while you are configuring the vehicle and when you are finished. Used inventory is online but new inventory is not.

Pros:
The configurator is very well done and offers you the ability to not only configure your vehicle but compare it to other Renault vehicles and see 360 degree views during the configuration process. It is also neat that you can begin the configuration process by indicating criteria like fuel type and equipment after selecting a version so that you get the one that is right for you. Once you've completed the configuration you can print it, save it, send it to a friend or contact a dealer regarding a test drive, brochure or pricing and availability information. A turnaround guarantee of 24 hours is given when you request further information from a Renault dealer. You can search for used inventory online.

Cons:
The page where you enter your personal information is not secure. New inventory is not available online.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    From the main page select a model using the graphics in the lower left hand area of the page (use the arrows to see all the models and click on the image of the car to select that model). Then click on the Help me choose link to launch the configurator.

  • Search for a used car
    There are now two different ways to buy used vehicles from Renault - direct from the manufacturer (Renault To Go) or from the Renault dealer network (Renault Dealer Used Cars). Using Renault To Go is almost like buying a new car in that you specify what you want and the manufacturer supplies it. The other method is much more what we are used to when shopping for a used vehicle - you put in what characteristics you want and a list of suitable vehicles is returned. Play with both to see what works best for you.

  • Locate a dealer
    Search for a dealer by post code or town within a radius of less than 10 miles to 'all dealers'.

Saab Great Britain
http://www.saab.co.uk/

A quick and easy to use configurator with lots of options when you're done the configuration. Used inventory is online but new inventory is not.

Pros:
The configurator is neatly done in a single-page format that doesn't require a lot of scrolling around. Once you're done configuring the vehicle you can print the summary, save it to a virtual garage, arrange a test drive, order a brochure or locate a dealer. Used inventory is online and searchable using your postcode.

Cons:
Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any way to send your configured vehicle details to a dealer so that you can enquire about a firm price or availability. New inventory is not available online.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    On the main page simply click on the Build your Saab button (bottom, left hand corner of page). On the next page select your model and then just follow the instructions/steps.

  • Search for a used car
    Enter your postcode and select the model and price range you are looking for. Click on the Search link to begin the search.

No configurator on this site but used inventory is online. New inventory is not online.

Pros:
Nothing much positive here except for the ability to look for used Subaru's online.

Cons:
There is no configurator on the Subaru site and new inventory is not online either.

How to:

  • Search for a used car
    There are a number of ways to look for a used car on the Subaru site - you can choose from certified used cars (called 'proven'), demonstrators or cars from direct stock. Seems to me it would be better to allow you to search all these categories at once but this is not the way Subaru has done it. So read over the 'About Proven and Direct' information and then use one of the three links (Proven Locator, Demonstrator Locator or Direct Stock Locator) to search for the type of vehicle you are looking for.

  • Locate a dealer
    Click on the appropriate area of the map and then hover over the dots to see dealerships in your area.

Toyota GB
http://www.toyota.co.uk/

A pretty good configurator with an unfortunate deficiency of having few actions open to you once you've configured the vehicle. Used inventory is available online but new inventory is not.

Pros:
The configurator is easy to use and fairly quick. To move between steps you need to click on a link in red at the bottom of each page (that's not immediately obvious). Once you've finished the configuration you can print it or save the configuration to a virtual garage. Used inventory is online and searchable using your postcode.

Cons:
There doesn't seem to be any way to pass your configured vehicle details on to a dealer for a quote or to get availability information. New inventory is not online.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    From the main page select a model from the list displayed in a row across the top of the page. Then click on the Build your XXX link (where XXX is the model you have chosen) from the row of links shown above the image of the model you have chosen.

  • Search for a used car
    From the main page click on the Used vehicles link in the left hand column. Offering different types of used vehicle searches seems to be all the rage at the moment so now you'll have to decide what kind of vehicle you want to search for (approved, plain old used car or LCV - whatever the heck that is). All searches seem to be generally the same offering you a post code based search tool.

  • Locate a dealer
    From the main page click on the Find a dealer link in the left hand column (very top in red - just below 'Our Range'). On the next page search by postcode or town or look for a dealer within the directory of dealerships within the UK.

One of our Favorites!Vauxhall
http://www.vauxhall.co.uk/

Despite being near the end of the category alphabetically this site is a winner in terms of what it has provided for the online shopper. There is a well done configurator with lots of options when you've finished the configuration. Used inventory is online but new inventory is not.

Pros:
The configurator is very easy to use and allows you to step through the configuration process quickly. Once you have completed the configuration you can save the configuration or - and this is the cool part - go ahead and order your vehicle online for a special Internet-shopper-only price. This is done on a secure site and will require a debit or credit card to pay the £20 refundable 'good faith' fee.

You can also search for used vehicles on the Vauxhall site using your postcode as a search criteria.

Cons:
New inventory is not online at the Vauxhall site. You can not print your completed configuration or email it to a friend.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    From the main page select a model by hovering over the View the range link beneath the CARS heading and then choosing a model from the list to the right. On the next page click on the Design link in the left hand column and simply follow instructions to configure your vehicle.

  • Search for a used car
    Do a quick search for a used vehicle (note that it doesn't have to be a Vauxhall - you can choose other manufacturers in the drop down box) using the box on the far right of the page. Indicate your manufacturer, model, mileage, price range and postcode and click on Search. There is an advanced search available if you'd like more search criteria.

  • Locate a dealer
    To find a dealer simply put your postcode in the box in the top right hand corner of the page and click on Go.

Volvo Cars
http://www.volvocars.co.uk/

A good but incredibly sluggish and complex configurator. Used inventory is online but new inventory is not.

Pros:
The configurator is good and when you've finished configuring the vehicle you can save the vehicle in a virtual garage, send it to a friend, print it or book a dealer test drive. Used inventory is searchable by distance from your postcode.

Cons:
Although you can "talk to a dealer" I am not 100% convinced that you are actually passing configuration details to the dealership. Also the form where you enter personal information is not secure and no turnaround guarantee is given. New inventory is not available online.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    From the main page select a model and then click on the Build & Price link in the area in the lower right hand corner of the model page.

  • Search for a used car
    Select a model by clicking on its graphic. On the next screen select a variant and enter your postcode, search distance, price range, age and trim. Click on View Results to search or to specify more criteria click on the Advanced Search Options link.

  • Locate a dealer
    To find a dealer simply enter your post code in the box in the top right hand corner of the page and click on Go.
