Mercedes-Benz Sprinter - 21,966 registrations

The Sprinter is one of our favourite vans, with its upmarket styling and cabin making it great for long stints behind the wheel. Popular with delivery drivers, the largest versions will carry payloads of 2253kg, while the loading lengths span from 2.6 to 4.7 metres. The choice of diesel engines are excellent too, returning up to 44.4mpg.
