Which Panel Van Should I Buy in 2022?
Whether you’re looking for a panel van for personal use or need an entire commercial fleet, you’re likely in the market for something that offers space, versatility and reliability. No matter your specific requirements, there is sure to be a panel van that suits you.
With a huge range of body styles and features available from a wide variety of well-known brands, there’s very little that panel vans cannot do – they can even be driven by those with a standard car driving licence!
Expert van suppliers’ top panel vans for 2022
Though there are countless panel vans to choose from, here’s a quick guide to some of Van Sales UK’s top choices for 2022.
Core models are capable of offering a payload in excess of 1000kg, putting it right up there with the very best vans in this sector. The Fiat Doblo also offers a range of different engines, both standard and long-wheelbase options, and either standard or high roof height – something which is fairly rare in small vans.
Depending on the size chosen, the internal load space ranges between 3.4 cubic metres and 5.4 cubic metres, making it suitable for all sorts of applications. The loading bay can be accessed through a pair of wide-opening rear doors, though you can get a top-hinged tailgate fitted if necessary, and most models also offer a sliding door on both sides.
Vauxhall’s merger with Stellantis means that the Vivaro now shares its underpinnings with the Citroen Dispatch and Peugeot Expert, rather than the Renault Trafic as before. So, while the new Vivaro is a little smaller on the inside than its predecessor, it provides a much more car-like experience. This makes it a great option for those who aren’t familiar or comfortable with driving a van or large vehicle.
The Vauxhall Vivaro comes in three lengths and has a through-loading bulkhead to accommodate long cargo items. The three-seat layout at the front of the van is a little on the tight side, but it does offer versatility if you need it. There is ample storage space and the van boasts a range of Stellantis’ top safety features.
Ford Transit Custom
One of Ford’s most popular vehicles, their Transit van comes in a variety of styles and sizes:
- Transit (full-size)
- Transit Custom (medium)
- Transit Courier (small)
- Transit Connect (small)
The Ford Transit Custom offers an enjoyable driving experience, competitive payload weights and decent cargo capacity. This renowned transit van is also fitted with modern, innovative technology such as the SYNC3 infotainment system, which includes a touchscreen sat-nav, voice control, and a range of connectivity options.
Advanced tech doesn’t come at the expense of practicality. Depending on which model you choose, Ford offers two lengths and a high-roof option, while the Double Cab model provides huge carrying ability. It’s a fantastic choice for personal and commercial uses alike.
