What's the best van for towing?

I have a Hyundai i800 but it has an issue where the clutch seems to overheat and stop working which means you have to stop for about 30 minutes which is not ideal.

I carry a fair bit of disco equipment and screens around, so I need a van or large-capacity estate vehicle. It would be nice if it had an excellent MPG.

You need to determine what size of van you need based on the size and weight of the equipment you need to carry, as a medium van will generally offer better fuel consumption than a large van, so you should choose the smallest van to suit your requirements.

For medium vans you should look at options like the Ford Transit Custom or the Volkswagen Transporter, which can tow up to 2800kg and 2500kg respectively depending on the specification. If you need a large van, options like the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Volkswagen Crafter and Ford Transit offer up to 3500kg of towing capacity.
