Best large vans for payload

We know that the Ford Transit and Mercedes Sprinter dominate the large vans for sale in the UK market, but are they the best choicewhen you carry a particularly heavy load on a regular basis? Vansdirect reveals all!

Here are the five best large vans for sale in the UK for payload!

5. Citroen Relay

Large vans don’t come much larger or much tougher than the Citroen Relay. Citroen vans have a Citroen Relay van available for everyone’s requirements with four van lengths and three van heights available. The Citroen Relay L2 H1 140ps van is the model with the highest payload in the range, loads up to 1,570kg can be accommodated.

4. Peugeot Boxer

The Peugeot Boxer and Citroen Relay vans may look similar, that’s because they are. Like the Citroen Relay, the Peugeot Boxer van is perfect for carrying the heaviest and toughest of loads. The Citroen Relay and Peugeot Boxer share the same body, so it comes as no real surprise that maximum payload of 1,570kg on the Peugeot Boxer L2 H1 140ps van is identical to that of the Citroen van equivalent.

3. Fiat Ducato

Fiat vans also have a large van based on the same platform as the Citroen Relay and Peugeot Boxer vans in the form of the Fiat Ducato. The Fiat Ducato used to lead the way in terms of payload, however recent mechanical changes have dropped the maximum payload of the large Fiat van by 50kg in exchange for a greatly improved engine and transmission line-up. The Fiat Ducato still offers an impressive maximum payload of 1605kg on SH1 35 vans.

2. Renault Master

Missing out on the top spot by a meagre 10kg is the Renault Master FWD SM35 130ps large van. Alongside a staggering maximum payload of 1,610kg, there’s load volumes up to 17 cubic metres available on the largest van in the Renault vans range, equating to space for up to five Euro pallets on one of the largest vans on the market.

1. Vauxhall Movano

Large vans for sale

Built on the same platform as the Renault Master van above, the best large van for sale for payload in the UK market is currently the Vauxhall Movano. The 10kg advantage the Vauxhall van has on its Renault vans alternative is largely down to the specification of both vans, with the 1620kg payload available on the entry level Vauxhall Movano 3500 FWD L1 H1 Edition van.
