If you can't decide whether to go for a compact city van or something more conventionally sized, why not strike a compromise with the Toyota ProAce? It could prove to be the right-sized and right-priced solution to many modern requirements. If you were about to sign up to that Transit, have a look here first.
Toyota is a company that loves a partnership. It commissioned Yamaha to develop many of its petrol engines, it joint-developed a sports car with Subaru, sold engines to Lotus and agreed fuel cell and electric vehicle technology with BMW. Perhaps then, it won't surprise you to learn that when the Japanese giant was looking to replace its HiAce range of vans, it decided not to strike out alone. Instead it agreed a partnership with PSA Peugeot Citroen and the ProAce was born.
Those of you who are clued into the van market won't need me to tell them that this is in fact a rebadged version of the Peugeot Expert, Citroen Dispatch and, by extension, the Fiat Scudo. You'll also know that these are some of the very best medium range panel vans around. Toyota appears to have chosen wisely.
This generation model is quite a bit bigger than the HiAce it replaced, big enough in fact to compete with a whole new army of larger rivals. Not only the Transit but also tough competitors like Volkswagen's Transporter, Vauxhall's Vivaro, Renault's Trafic and Mercedes' Vito. Now you see why Toyota thought twice about trying to break into this sector on its own. It's stuffed with talent.
