The Best Small Vans Reviewed

The courier service industry in the UK has blossomed over the years and it is this growth that has lead to an increase in the sales of vans. Many courier service providers in the UK have a large number of medium sized vans in the ranks because customers and business prefer to book them more compared to small vans however, many small vans are more fuel efficient which helps courier service providers cut costs. With so many small vans on the market the question now is which small vans are the best ones to use?

1. Nissan NV200

The Nissan NV200 has less power and cargo space when compared to other cargo vans on the market however, its efficient engine, low price, versatile interior and around town manoeuvrability makes it an excellent choice among UK courier service providers. Manoeuvrable and more efficient than large vans, competitive pricing on the market and an economical four-cylinder engine are some of the pros of this lovely van. As for the cons, less cargo space and power makes most buyers consider other vans.

2. Renault Kangoo

The Renault Kangoo is one of the oldest vans in its class with its 1.5 litre diesel engine. This van is the second most fuel efficient thanks to the energy saving technology that it has. Replacement parts for this van are very affordable and can be found at many Renault dealerships however, the technology in the van makes it very expensive and it also has poor refinement.

3. Fiat Doblo Cargo

This is one of the most underrated vans on the UK market considering it was the very first small van to offer a one tonne payload. The Fiat Doblo Cargo is very comfortable, efficient and has plenty of load space which makes it ideal for courier work. The only drawback of this van is that the engine makes a lot of noise when cruising at low speed.

4. Volkswagen Caddy

This van is seen as the most desired van and the most efficient van in the class however, it has not changed much since 2003. The Volkswagen Caddy is very expensive especially if one is looking to buy a new one. Not only is the van expensive but its parts are not cheap either. However, it is one of the most reliable vans for courier work because it is spacious, classy and performs very well on the road.

5. Ford Transit Connect

The Ford Transit Connect is a favourite for UK buyers since it was introduced in 2002. Customers who buy this van are very impressed with its handling, fuel efficiency and comfort. Parts for this van are very affordable from dealers across the UK which is also another reason many people love it. Poor visibility and a wide turning circle are two major drawback of the Ford Transit Connect.
