Need a van for a small sandwich business - what do you recommend?

We have an old Daihatsu Hijet for our sandwich business but are after something newer to replace it. I know they longer make the Hijet but is there anything available that's similar? We basically need a small but practical van.

We’d be tempted with the Ford Transit Courier or the Vauxhall Combo, should you want something larger. The Courier will carry a Euro pallet and is also available with petrol engines, so should suit better if you’re not covering many long trips.

Neatly styled, can carry a Euro pallet, available with 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, based on the Fiesta so handles well.
