The best pick-up for comfort and fuel economy is the latest Nissan Navara: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/nissan/navara-np.../ If car-like comfort and refinement are not high on your list of priorities then the Isuzu D-Max would be worth considering: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/isuzu/d-max-2012/ I'd add the SsangYong Musso to your list too. Admittedly, it’s rough around the edges in terms of refinement, but will tow 3.5 tonnes when hooked to a braked trailer. It’s also backed by SsangYong’s comprehensive five-year unlimited mileage warranty.
