The Best Small Vans With 3 Front Seats in 2023

The Best Small Vans With 3 Front Seats in 2023


Which small vans have three front seats?

For times when you need to transport more people around on jobs, a van with three seats is the ideal solution. Even if you're not using all of the seats all of the time, having them there can just make for an all-round more comfortable journey, especially on longer trips, not to mention a roomier interior generally.

Clearly, however, not all small vans come with three seats, so if that's important to you, check in advance and understand which models will meet your requirements.

Here, we take a look at some of the best smaller models on today's market which have three seats:


Citroen Berlingo 3 Seats

The Citroen Berlingo is one of the few vans that has dominated the small-van market for several years. The two available body lengths make it easier to meet your requirements, the standard Size M version measuring 4.4m, and an extended XL version measuring 4.75m.

Three front seats make the Berlingo a versatile option, and if heavy load capacity is a must, then you can’t look much past the one tonne class-leading payload.


Peugeot Partner 3 Seats

Another big player in the small van sector and equipped with three front seats is the Peugeot Partner. This small van is available with either a 1.2-litre Puretech petrol or 1.5-litre BlueHDi Euro 6 diesel engine.

Packed with car like features, the Partner boasts the i-Cockpit which provides an intuitive and modern looking control system which may appeal to those who regularly travel longer distances and look for that little extra luxury.


Ford Transit Connect 3 Seats

Available with three seats, the Ford Transit Connect displays a highly practical design which has been well thought out. It comes in two different lengths, and is always going to be a solid, reliable choice from a well-respected brand.

This updated Ford Transit Connect has a sophisticated new look and comprehensively updated interior, offering more advanced technology than ever before.

Peugeot Expert 3 Seats

With little bodyroll and light, precise steering, the Peugeot Expert is in many ways a great van to drive, and highly manoeuvrable with a tight turning circle of 11.3m. It comes with a string of high-tech features and scores highly in the fuel economy stakes while also having a good payload capacity.

The Expert offers four engine choices for the Expert ranging from 100bhp to 180bhp where you can expect up to 53mpg, which is one of the leaders in its class.


Ford Transit Custom 3 Seats

Also equipped with three front seats, the Ford Transit Custom is a smaller mid-sized van which is widely accepted as a staple in its class.

Depending on your needs, the Custom comes with a choice of four different versions of Ford’s 2.0-litre diesel engine. You can also get short or long body versions, as well as a standard or high roof, making this van as flexible as the larger Transit.


Vauxhall Vivaro 3 Seats

Another smaller mid-sized van, the Vauxhall Vivaro has two body-length options plus you get the choice between their various energy-efficient diesel engines and all electric models. Recently upgraded with numerous high-tech features, the three-seater Vivaro offers a ‘car like’ modern interior.

Overall, the Vauxhall Vivaro is easy to drive, efficient and capable of swallowing three Euro pallets, offering plenty to businesses wanting comfortable and hardworking van.

Renault Trafic 3 Seats

The Renault Trafic offers a great all-round package in the smaller mid-size class. The four main trim levels offer a generous amount of equipment and new, innovative features which make your working day that little bit easier.

As well as the new passenger airbag designed to better protect the middle-seat occupant, other new features include automatic emergency braking (AEB), blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, traffic sign recognition and lane-keep assist.
