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.

One of the smaller mid-sized vans, the Vivaro has two body-length options plus a choice of two engines and four power outputs. Recently upgraded with numerous high-tech features, the three-seater Vivaro also offers considerable comfort and handles well.
With little bodyroll and light, precise steering, the Expert is in many ways a great van to drive, and highly manoeuvrable. It comes with a string of high-tech features and scores highly in the fuel economy stakes while also having a good payload capacity.
