Best Vans for City Driving: Commercial vs Personal

December 8th, 2022

For those of us working or living in cities, transport can be a real nightmare. With traffic, clean air zones, congestion charges and busy roads to consider, choosing a vehicle that is fit for the task can make life a lot easier.

If you’re on the quest for a van that can match the trials and tribulations of a metropolitan existence, look no further. Here at Van Sales UK, we’ve picked out three vans that are an urbanite’s best friend.

Peugeot e-Partner

First on our list is a neat little electric van that packs a surprising amount of power. The Peugeot e-Partner is capable of going for up to 170 miles on a single charge; that’s more than enough for long days zipping around the city and is perfectly fit for longer journeys when required. For a small van, the Peugeot e-Partner offers an impressive 800 kg payload. That’s good news for tradespeople and those looking to transport goods around the city.

Inside the e-Partner’s cab, you’re faced with a well-built futuristic cockpit arrangement, complete with all the usual features such as Bluetooth, USB and DAB radio. This is a great van for commercial drivers and personal users alike.

Ford Transit Connect

Next on our list is the Ford Transit Connect. This impressive little van is powered by a 1.5-litre EcoBlue diesel engine which is ideal for lower emission regulations. The Transit Connect is available in two lengths and three different power outputs, so you’re sure to find a model that suits your needs down to a T.

For those prone to taking shorter journeys with a lot of stop/start driving, this van is a great choice, offering an automatic option, advanced battery management, acceleration control, switchable speed limiter, gear shift indicator and automatic start-stop function.

Toyota Proace City

When it comes to urban driving, this impressive little van was designed with tighter environments in mind. As the name suggests, the Toyota Proace City handles back roads, cramped parking spots and congested driving with ease.

Though this van is virtually identical to the Citroen Berlingo in terms of engine and interior build, it boasts a range of safety features and in-cab technology that help it stand out from the crowd.
