Car-buyer's eye on the web
- Car manufacturers use web to show cars
- Volvo website offers XC90 competition
- VW launches microsite for Eos convertible
A couple of car manufacturers have launched web campaigns this month, which could be of interest to car buyers.
Volvo has fallen in with the movie 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' and launched an online treasure hunt. The prize is a 'pirate-themed' XC90, which is buried in a container 'somewhere' in the world.
You have to pick up a 'map' from your nearest Volvo dealership then log on to www.volvocars.co.uk/thehunt to find out how to win.
Also, Volkswagen's convertible, the Eos, goes on sale here next month, so VW has launched a dedicated website for the new car.
According to VW, you can 'drive' the Eos through a three-dimensional interactive sensory world.
What that really means is that you can play with car's metal roof, choose paint and upholstery options, then move your chosen car around a landscape of giant sunflowers and pine cones, picking up information about the car on the way. Great stuff.
