Letters from the Editor: A new look and new direction for Car Keys

Our site has been given a complete redesign, and we’re now pleased to present to you a Car Keys site that’s better not just for us, but more importantly, for you.

Hi there, and welcome to the all-new, all-different Car Keys website.

For the past few years Car Keys has been bringing you daily updates on the latest car news, plus regular features, video reviews, guides and more, but we’ve never really taken the opportunity to actually speak to you directly, or to tell you about what goes on behind the scenes here.

As a result, I decided that the launch of our new site would be the perfect opportunity to get the chance to introduce myself, to say hello and also to say thank you.

With your help, over the past two years we’ve taken Car Keys on an extraordinary journey from being a relatively meagre publication to one of the UK’s foremost destinations for car buyers and car enthusiasts alike.

However, the underlying design and functionality of our site had never been updated in order to reflect the sheer amount and diversity of our content or to deal with the remarkable increase in traffic.

Today, I’m happy to announce, that has changed.

After a period of intensive research, testing, redesigns and multiple return trips to the drawing board, we’re pleased to present to you a Car Keys that’s better built, not just for ourselves but, most importantly of all, for you.

Our new site is now multi-device friendly, with bespoke interfaces designed specifically for use on mobile and tablet, as well as on desktop. Our site is now faster to load than ever and features a much-improved user journey, so you can find it easier to access all of our great features.

 

It’s better looking too, with a complete redesign that more effectively incorporates integrated images and videos, so you can enjoy our content across all forms of media in one easy to navigate destination.

The result is a website that’s easier for you to use, which better reflects the breadth and quality of our content and our services, and which we hope will provide a much more enjoyable, much more useful experience for you.

There’s more to come too, so keep your eyes peeled and watch this space. We’d also welcome your feedback, so if you’d like to share any of your thoughts with us, please email us or join the conversation on any of our social media channels.

Anyway, that's all for now so feel free to have a poke around our new site, and I'm sure we'll be in touch soon.
