Inventory Vehicle Details Pages

We have introduced a brand new, refreshed Inventory Vehicle Details Page design following a thorough conversation with our customers into what information and functions they require to generate the highest number of leads directly from their Vehicle Detail Pages.

 

The refreshed Vehicle Detail Page design has been implemented to:

  • Improve the user experience (UX) on all devices. including computer, mobile and tablet, with a particular focus on mobile
  • Provide users with more information about the car – Refuel Estimates + Estimated Range
  • Reorder the information on the page based on what customers want (data + research)
  • Clean up the design to bring it into line with the improved Simple Search UI released in a previous iteration
