Medium Vans

Volkswagen Transporter
1
  • Functional design; Customisable to suit you; Created in Australia with a focus on Australian products

  • Business is good, so there may be a wait; Getting carried away with extras and costs; You'll probably not want to return home

Renault Trafic
  • Engine and gearbox combination is well matched; Cabin quality and comfort are as good as the segment leaders; The drive experience is excellent and more car-like than commercial

  • Safety inclusions can't match the new standard-setters; Included phone holster won't accommodate larger smartphones; Storage space could be better designed

Ford Transit Custom
  • Long list of advanced safety features; Practical and roomy cabin; Awesome low- and high-beam headlights; Long service intervals; Sharp capped-price servicing costs

  • Still drives like a van; Long braking distances in an emergency stop; Overall fit and finish inside and out are starting to feel a bit old; Limited towing capacity

Mercedes-Benz Vito
  • Refined engine and smart transmission; Interior comfort and visibility are both excellent; Cargo space is useful and rear doors are a clever adaption

  • Some options are on the pricey side; Safety credentials of the HiAce are stronger and more recent; A larger screen would match the segment leaders

Hyundai iLoad
  • Roomy, comfortable cabin; Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; Drives well despite its age

  • Lacks advanced safety tech; Four-star safety rating; Lacks digital speed display and other mod-cons
