Can you recommend a ULEZ-compliant van that will fit our bicycles?

We have a 2008 Citroen Berlingo Mulispace, which is perfect for putting bikes in without taking off the wheels, but it now doesn't comply with the London emission standards. The newer Berlingo is bulkier. Are there other models with the sort of headroom at the back as our current car without being bigger?

It's a sad fact of automotive life that new cars are generally larger than the ones they replace - this is because new vehicles are required to meet tougher safety standards, with crumple zones and new tech pushing the vehicles to new dimensions. The compact Fiat Qubo is available as a Euro6 diesel. However, you'll get less interior space and it might not accommodate your bikes:

You might want to consider the Ford Tourneo Connect:

Or a Volkswagen Caddy Life:
