Peugeot Expert Blue S&S 1000kg professional

The Peugeot Expert underwent a complete overhaul as recently as 2016, with a brand new platform, more professional appearance and plethora of safety and driver assistance equipment. The Peugeot Expert can cope with particularly heavy loads with a heavy-duty suspension and revised power steering, there’s also reduced intrusion into the load bay as a result of the rear suspension set-up. There’s also an impressive level of standard kit on this model including: rear parking sensors, air con, load-through bulkhead, rear parking sensors, DAB, Bluetooth and Mirror Link.

Volkswagen Transporter T28 low roof TDI

Sharing the award with the Peugeot van is the iconic Volkswagen Transporter van. The 2.0-litre TDI engine of the VW Transporter delivers 250Nm of torque, which is more than sufficient to transport heavy loads whilst still offering excellent levels of performance this is aided by a gross weight of just 2,800kgs. This VW Transporter version may be compact, however with 5.8 cubic metres of load volume, it offers sufficient carrying capacity for most business users whilst the low roof means it has the urban advantage of being able to enter the majority of multi-storey car parks.
