Citroen’s Nemo, along with its Fiat and Peugeot cousins, has been around since 2008 to offer van buyers a compact exterior with a surprisingly large load space inside. This Tardis impression is added to with the Nemo’s decent payload capacity that makes it a sound choice for those who want plenty of versatility but in a small package.

Citroen has managed to find enough space in the Nemo to fit a standard Euro pallet between the wheelarches in the load bay, so it is useful for more than just small parcel deliveries. It’s also well made, so it can put up with the rigours of continual multi-drop use.

The dimunitive Nemo is ideal for busy cities as it's great at nipping through congested streets and is easy to park. Add in good economy and low running costs from the 1.3-litre diesel and 1.4-litre petrol engines and the Nemo makes a strong case for itself. It’s just a shame the petrol is not so well suited to motorways.

Citroen has added the Enterprise model that comes with air conditioning, rear parking sensors and Bluetooth connection to make the Nemo appeal even more. It puts the little Citroen at the forefront of its sector and is worth consideration by anyone looking for a compact van.
