Available as a panel van or crew cab, new Renault Kangoo deals start from as little as £7000, which is great value for this formidable French commercial vehicle. The load space is large too and features a low sill that makes it easy to load, while factory-fit options include ply lining and a rear roof flap for carrying ladders. The 1.5-litre diesel engine is also strong, with outputs of 70PS, 85PS and 105PS.
Few vans for sale can match the Peugeot Bipper's low running costs. New van sales start from £7999 and the Bipper’s 2.5 cubic metre load bay and 660kg payload makes it a great choice for light-footed builders, gardeners and delivery drivers. The 1.3-litre diesel engine costs buttons to run too, with advertised fuel economy peaking at 64.2mpg.
The Vauxhall Corsavan is one of the most comfortable small new vans for sale, which means it is perfect for long journeys, with lots of head and leg room. Available with 1.2 petrol and 1.3 diesel engines, the Corsavan will return up to an official 83.1mpg, while its 571kg payload gives it 70kg more carrying capacity than its direct rival, the Ford Fiesta Van.
Easy to drive, easy to use and easy on the wallet, new Citroen Berlingos can be found for £9000. There are two lengths to choose from – L1 and L2 – with the largest vans providing a load space that will measure 2.5 metres long and 1.6 metres wide. Maximum payloads are decent too, up to 896kg, while Berlingos with the BlueHDi 100 engine will return an official 67.3mpg.
Ford Transit Courier
We're big fans of the Ford Transit Courier. In fact, it's one of our favourite compact vans. All Couriers are good to drive and there is wide selection of petrol and diesel engines. Despite its compact dimensions, the Transit Courier is a surprisingly capable carrier for tools, materials and cargo. The load length spans a useful 1.6 metres, which means all versions will carry a Euro pallet weighing up to 660kg.
Fiat Doblo Cargo
The Fiat Doblo Cargo is a compact van that majors on value and versatility. New vans can be found for under £10,000 and there is a huge choice of body styles, carrying capacities and load volumes. The most frugal versions will return an advertised 68.9mpg while peak payloads exceed one tonne.
Ford Transit Connect
With car-like handling and comfort, you might think that the latest Ford Transit Connect has gone soft. But look beneath that modern exterior and you’ll find that this is a hugely capable workhorse. The loadspace will reach up to 3.7 cubic metres, while the 993kg payload and load-through bulkhead give lots of everyday practicality. There are lots of petrol and diesel choices too, with the latter returning up to 72.4mpg.
The latest Proace is based on the Citroen Dispatch, but benefits from a better aftersales package thanks to Toyota’s comprehensive five-year/100,000 mile warranty. Like the Dispatch, the Proace will carry three Euro pallets and tow up to 2.5 tonnes. Maximum payloads peak at 1400kg too (for most versions) while the large and comfortable interior makes the Toyota idea for long stints behind the wheel.
Electric vans have improved a lot in recent years and few commercial vehicles illustrate this better than the Nissan e-NV200. Ideal for city-based builders, delivery drivers and gardeners, the e-NV200 will travel 100+ miles on a single charge and carry up to 770kg of cargo. The 4.2 cubic metre loadspace will easily fit two Euro pallets, while the battery pack can be recharged from zero to 80 per cent in 30 minutes when hooked up to a rapid charger.
Mitsubishi's durable L200 pick-up is one of the best off-roaders, with Land Rover-rivalling capability that will make it perfect for engineers, farmers and builders who regularly need to head off the beaten track. The maximum payload is almost identical to the old L200, 1045kg, while the towing limit has increased to 3.1 tonnes. The 2.4-litre diesel is impressive too, with claimed economy peaking at a pleasing 42.8mpg.
