There’s very little to choose between the Citroen Relay and Peugeot Boxer vans as they are essentially built on the same platform, so fourth and fifth places in the table could have easily have been reversed, however we’ve just opted for the Peugeot Boxer here as we prefer the front end appearance with the higher grille, that and trim levels are basically where the differences between the two excellent large vans ends.
