Driven Online

Driven has moved from its previous online home within the Herald Online to a new, custom built, stand-alone multiplatform site developed to assist car buyers and enthusiasts wherever they are… at home researching or out and about.
The reason behind the shift was based on research findings from our recent Road to Purchase survey. This highlighted a gap in the New Zealand market of a site that provided a one-stop shop for car buyers, enabling them to view and compare listings and reviews within the same site. is content-led while enabling New Zealanders to compare NZ based reviews and advice side by side with car listings.
