We are very excited to be announcing the carwow redesign! We’ve made some big changes and from now on you’ll start seeing new things added to the site regularly.
A couple of months ago David, our developer, joined the team, so we’ve brought everything in-house. We’ve finally been able to start building things quickly, cost-effectively and bring some of our many ideas to life for you. So far we’ve completely rebuilt and improved the design of the site, mainly making a whole load of behind-the-scenes changes, but you’ll definitely notice a few positive differences!
New Car Chooser
The focus for the re-launch was mainly on optimising the Car Chooser. The Car Chooser is now integrated into any search results and is now an integral part of the site. We wanted to create a more powerful and easier to use tool, so it’s now quicker and has more filter options. Results update in real-time and all appear on one page, no need to click through 20 odd pages any more!
Quicker Loading Times
The old site was slow, very slow! Without going into geeky details, we’ve improved the loading times of every page and of the image galleries.
For all the new cars on sale we’ve added even more helpful info for you to read, such as when the car was launched, when a replacement is due and which engine is the one to go for. We want to make information about cars more transparent, so we’ve included things that our users have told us they want to see when buying a new car.
Higher quality photos
The photos are the same size as before, but we’ve upped the quality and some clever image hosting means they’ll load way faster.
Better Stats Tab
We’ve improved the stats page for every new car, listing which engines are for sale, and which are no longer made. So the page will be useful for both new and used buyers.
In a couple of months there will be a big change to this tab, but for now we’ve just tweaked it slightly.
There’s plenty more to come!
From now on, thanks to taking development in-house, there won’t be a week that goes by without new features or improvements being released! We’ve got loads of exciting things in store for you.
We really hope you like the new feel of the site and find our features a delight to use. We know there’s still a bit of polishing to be done – we’re working on it!
As always please do get in touch if you’ve got any questions or suggestions, we’d love to hear from you.
Now have a play with our new site!
