Buying a small van

I'm looking to replace my old Escort van, with a 2-3 yr old vehicle. Most driving is 25 mile round trip commute, but occasionally I need space for the dog, going to the builders yard, etc. A Berlingo Multispace looks OK, but too large. Do you have any suggestions? Of course the lower the VED the better.

Astravan. (Strangely a Corsavan is bigger.) Or think Citroen Nemo/Peugeot Bipper/Fiat Fiorino.
