What small van or MPV offers the quietest drive?

Of the small van-based cars (Citroen Berlingo, Peugeot Partner, Ford Tourneo Connect, Vauxhall Combo, Skoda Yeti, Fiat Doblo), which do you reckon offers the quietest drive?

Small vans are not as refined as small cars, but a full size steel bulkhead will do a good job of muffling a lot of the usual road and wind noise. However, if you want seats in the back then the Skoda Yeti is probably the quietest (given that it's a car and not a van): www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/skoda/yeti-2009/

The Ford Tourneo Connect would comes in as a close second: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/ford/tourneo-con.../

The Volkswagen Caddy Life would also be a good option, but avoid DSG autos as these have mixed feedback when it comes to reliability: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/volkswagen/caddy.../
