With judges including the Fleet Transport Association, British Car Auctions and fleet management companies, when it comes to vans, these guys know their stuff.


Need a small van? Citroen Berlingo

Small in size but not in reputation, scooping the overall Van of the Year title the Citroen Berlingo 1.6HDi L1 Enterprise 75bhp has also been named Best Small Trades Van. With excellent fuel economy figures and a load length of up to three metres, the low front-end price of this Berlingo means it is a one size fits many trades van, also popular with the delivery sector.

Carrying people as well as tools? Volkswagen Transporter Kombi

Whether you are taking workmates to site or shifting friends and gear about at the weekend the Kombi will do the job.  Winning the Best Crew Van Award, the Kombi offers the best of both worlds; a six-seater, yet with a panel van to the rear which keeps a generous load out of sight.

With no scrimping on car-like comforts and a choice of luxury specifications the Kombi is perfect for those who can't choose between a van and a car. Of course it comes with all the tax efficiencies of a commercial vehicle too.

Driving in a Low Emissions Zone? Nissan e-NV200 Electric

Named Best Green Van the Nissan eNV200 is ideal for any environmentally aware business, or even if you simply want to save a bit of cash in the congestion charging zone.  With a range of 106 miles, plenty for most business journeys, the 703kg payload can easily accommodate two Euro pallets. With a 2 pence per mile running cost, it's worth doing your homework on electric charging points in your area and thinking seriously about going green.

Carrying a large payload? Citroen Relay 35 L3 H2 130 bhp Enterprise

We ask a lot of heavy panel vans; reliability, toughness, comfort, enviable fuel economy, huge load volume.  The list goes on.  Voted Best Heavy Panel Van the Citroen Relay does all the above with aplomb.  So if you have a lot to carry over a long distance then this might just be the van for you.

As a reliable shifter, you really can't get better than this.  In fact at 1525kg the Citroen Relay offers the highest payload in its class.  It has a really practical load compartment too with not only a large width, but also a big width between wheel arches.  A low load deck and high door apertures make loading a doddle too.

A lot to carry for your trade? Vauxhall Vivaro 1.6CDTi 16v bi-turbo 120bhp L1H1 Sportive

Designed around a hugely practical load area, the Vauxhall Vivaro also has great drivability.  Even on a short wheelbase, three Europallets can easily be accommodated or 8 x 4 ply.  Its m assive payload of 1281kg means nothing need be left behind.  Awkward loads don't need to be a struggle either. With its FlexCargo load through bulkhead, standard on the Sportive trim, items up to 4.15m can easily be carried.

It offers 47.9 mpg fuel economy on a combined cycle and an extensive choice of wheelbases and roof heights.  With all this and a 'Built in Britain' tag, you are not only buying the right van for your business, but for your economy too!
