1. Ford Transit Custom
Currently, the most sold van on the market, the Ford Transit Custom vans are friendlier to the environment thanks to their 2.0-litre Ford EcoBlue engines which also reduces the overall running costs by being more fuel efficient.
The Ford Transit Custom is one of the most functional and innovative vans on the market. Options include a Base model, an advanced Trend version with additional features, and a Limited version which features even more interior and exterior enhancements.
There are also numerous features added to the Limited Custom that are not available on the Base or Trend versions.

The Transit is also fitted with Ford SYNC. Ford SYNC technology allows you to safely stay connected and entertained on the go, with the use of voice commands, steering wheel controls and touchscreen swipe gestures.
3. Mercedes Sprinter
The Mercedes Sprinter is often compared to the Ford Transit, as they are similar looking vans, often the Ford Transit still comes out on top, but we would urge you to do your own research as the Sprinter is in the top five best-selling and could still be more suitable to your needs.
Not only does the basic 2018-on Sprinter panel van come in a choice of three wheelbase lengths, four body lengths, three body heights and load volume of up to 17.0 cubic meters, it’s also available with front-wheel drive (FWD) for the first time.
4. VW Transporter
The Volkswagen Transporter is known as a versatile model with hundreds of different configurations and options. Most Transporters come with a six-speed manual gearbox, except the 83bhp and 102bhp diesels, which get five ratios.
5. Ford Ranger
The Ford Ranger is Europe’s best-selling pick-up.
The Ranger is designed to be a rugged workhorse, ready to pull or carry heavy loads and deal with whatever the terrain throws at it. Despite it being a truck, comfort hasn’t been ignored, and Ford has made an effort to appeal to potential buyers who want passenger car luxuries in their pick-up truck.
