Inspired by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders’ (SMMT) monthly top ten new van sales chart, we decided to create our own top ten – for van leasing deals!
No matter whether you need a small van, medium van, large van or pickup, we can help. Our fantastic van leasing deals are designed to be affordable, so you can get a brand new van for the lowest possible price!
An efficient urban delivery van, the Renault Kangoo is one of Europe’s best-selling vans. It’s well-built, comfortable and practical and makes an ideal choice of van for operators looking for quality and versatility. The LL21 is the long wheelbase model – called Maxi – and as such offers a load volume of 4 cubic metres and a phenomenal 800kg payload. Business models include digital radio with Bluetooth, USB and Aux, electric windows and a sliding side door.
The resilient Citroen Berlingo continues to perform well over 20 years since its introduction. This is due in part to the excellent equipment levels offered with Enterprise models. These include semi-integrated navigation and vehicle tracking, 7” touchscreen incorporating digital radio, air conditioning, rear parking sensors, cruise control and a folding bulkhead/front passenger bench seat combo which extends load lengths to 3 metres and load volume from 3.3 to 3.7 cubic metres.
One of the best-looking vans in the Ford range, the Transit Connect is a small van that’s deceptively big on space. There’s room for two Europallets as well as 3.4-metre long items thanks to the Connect’s load-through bulkhead. The L2 version can even take up to four standard 8’x4’ boards. The usual set of Ford trims are available – Base, Trend and Limited – and this Trend models includes body coloured bumpers, front fog lights, digital radio, seating for two passengers and a load-through bulkhead.
Try and put together a list of vans without mentioning the Ford Transit Custom. It’s impossible – trust us. There’s good reason – this all-conquering van is unrivalled when it comes to, well, pretty much everything. It sold almost 50,000 units last year in the UK alone. Its new 130ps engine has a maximum torque rating of 385Nm and emits 55% less Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) than the previous Euro 5 models. This Limited model includes body coloured bumpers, front fog lights, front and rear parking sensors, automatic headlights and wipers, digital radio and cruise control.
Last year the Expert was reborn as a completely new van, and the results are staggering. Gone is the dated look of the old model, replaced by a new and modern van that’s good-looking, capable and has not only retained all of the previous models distinguishing characteristics but improved on them. The low overall height of 1.9m means that the new Expert can still enter underground car parks with ease, while the load area is more uniform and payloads START at 1-tonne. This Professional models includes air con, rear parking sensors, 7” touchscreen with digital radio and a load-through bulkhead.
The Renault Trafic is now one of FOUR vans that share the same body after the Fiat Talento and Nissan NV300 joined the Vauxhall Vivaro in adopting the Trafic’s body shape. Now in its third generation, the Trafic remains a popular van, especially with electricians who need maximum flat-load area space and easy access. This sport model includes automatic headlights and wipers, 7” touchscreen with satellite navigation, digital radio, front fog lights, cruise control, leather steering wheel, metallic paint, body coloured exterior parts and alloy wheels. Phew!
Another van that shares its body with a few others, the Peugeot Boxer is one of the most versatile large vans on the van leasing market. We have both L3 and L4 models available at the same price – but what are the differences? The obvious ones are load length and volume, which will naturally be bigger on the L4 model. If payload is a concern then the L3 can actually carry 1525kg to the L4’s 1440kg. Professional models include air conditioning, cruise control, parking sensors, a touchscreen with integrated navigation and digital radio.
The Ford Transit is a true classic, a van that has survived and flourished over the 50-odd years of its life. Ford may have split the Transit name over four distinct models but for the big jobs, the good old Transit is still the daddy. This L3H3 Base model can accommodate loads of up to 3.5m in length in a load space of 13 cubic metres. Included with Base models is a full bulkhead, passenger bench seat, electric windows, sliding side door and Bluetooth/USB connectivity.
Two models, both priced the same. So which do you choose? The truth is, there’s not a lot in it. The L200 is the very first pickup with an all-aluminium engine, reducing fuel economy thanks to the reduced weight. Both the Warrior and Barbarian models feature 180ps engines with a maximum torque figure of 430Nm. Both can carry a tonne-and-a-half and tow up to 3-tonnes. The only real difference is that the Barbarian features a soft-opening tailgate and an exterior enhancement pack for a slightly different appearance. Included with both models are a number of luxury features which include but are not limited to: reversing camera, 17” alloy wheels, rain and dusk sensors, 7” touchscreen with digital radio and SD card navigation.
Last but not least, it’s the Ford Ranger. The American influence is clear to see in this pickup’s muscle car styling, and it’s also a proper workhorse with a 3.5-tonne towing capacity. Limited models are well-equipped, featuring 17” alloy wheels, 8” touchscreen, air conditioning, rear parking sensors, a chrome sports bar and rear privacy glass.
