VW Vans are renowned for their fantastic build quality, this is certainly the case for the largest new van in their range, the VW Crafter van. The VW van is surprisingly car like to drive, with a nimble feel and responsive handling, whilst your view of the road ahead is also excellent. The Crafter takes technology from the VW passenger car range, meaning a host of the latest features and safety technology are at your fingertips.

4. Renault Master / Vauxhall Movano

WhatVan? LCV of the Year 2020, these two almost identical large vans have been mainstays of the segment for decades and have always been lauded for their fantastic large workhorse qualities and are perhaps the unsung heroes of the market. However the latest facelifted Renault Master and Vauxhall Movano vans deserve some serious consideration; with revised and more attractive styling, revised dashboards and instrument panels, a fully integrated touchscreen and increased storage over their predecessors.

3. Citroen Relay / Peugeot Boxer

Another set of large van siblings, the Citroen Relay and Peugeot Boxer vans are available in no fewer than four van lengths and three van heights and with some of the most generously equipped trim levels in the segment. Despite being such large vans, both the Relay and Boxer vans thrive at positioning and parking, with a tight turning circle and surprisingly nimble handling.

2. Ford Transit

New Ford Transit van

A name synonymous with large vans and quality large vans at that, the Ford Transit van has a lifespan of more than half a century and has continually improved over this time to deliver a phenomenally comfortable, reliable and practical large van for almost everyone’s requirements, with a staggering 450 variants available. The latest facelift to the Transit van has seen it benefit from a raft of the latest Ford vans technology, as well as economy and payload also improving.

1. Mercedes Sprinter

Mercedes Sprinter

It’s taken some van to knock the iconic Ford Transit off the top spot and the Mercedes Sprinter van is just that. The Mercedes Sprinter van offers all of the cargo volume, payload and configurations you could ever need from a large van, whilst also featuring a massive raft of technology from the fantastic Mercedes cars range. The MBUX infotainment system is superb quality, whilst the cabin is a hugely comfortable and refined place to spend large amounts of your working day. The Sprinter van is also available in front and rear wheel drive and comes as standard with impressive connectivity features which are perfect for van fleet managers in keeping track of everything you could possibly need to know about every member of your fleet.
