Renault Kangoo ZE (2021)

The Renault Kangoo ZE was one of the first all-electric vans available and lots has changed since its launch in 2011. The latest version appeared in 2021 with better comfort and an improved battery range. This is Europe’s best-selling small electric van with the firm shifting more than 50,000 units. It’s still an interesting van for those who want to switch to battery power and it’s worth shortlisting. If you can wait, the Kangoo e-Tech with a range of 164 miles is scheduled to appear in 2022.

Volkswagen Amarok (2017)

For those who need a workhorse but would like a pick-up with leather seats, lots of space in the cabin and great levels of performance, then the Volkswagen Amarok is for you. It is highly recommended but it’s not the cheapest pick-up to buy or run and its size can be intimidating.

Toyota Hilux (2017)

The new Toyota Hilux has a lot to live up to – it’s one of the most famous pick-ups ever made and the all-new version is an impressive offering. Indeed, when driven it handles more like an SUV rather than a pick-up and there is more refinement and interior space. It’s still a winning combination and Toyota has recognised that the market has changed and has managed to create a pick-up that will deliver what businesses are looking for as well as families wanting a ‘lifestyle pick-up’. The latest version is not an all-new model but instead is a revamp which has improved refinement and comfort levels.

Citroen Dispatch (2016)

The new Citroen Dispatch is head and shoulders above the model it replaces and it has a decent offering in the segment. Very similar to the Toyota Proace and Peugeot Expert, there’s a lot to like about the Dispatch.

Ford Transit Connect

The Ford Transit Connect is nothing short of brilliant for the market it’s aimed at and underlines why it won the ‘International Van of the Year 2014’.

Hyundai iLoad

Based on the Hyundai i800, the iLoad is a van with lots of car-like abilities and a decent load space.

Nissan NV200

The Nissan NV200 is the firm’s bid to set new standards for the small van market and this it manages to do for many criteria – but not all. It’s a great van to drive and has excellent abilities.

Citroen Nemo

It might be a small van but there’s lots of space on board what is a frugal and keen performer.

Fiat Ducato
