There are four lengths in three wheelbases and three roof heights on offer, which means cargo volumes range from 8-17 cubic metres, while a payload of up to 1.9 tonnes is available if that’s what’s important to you.

Like rivals, there are off-the-shelf conversions also available, with Luton, dropside, tipper, box body and even curtainside versions available direct from dealers. Electric versions of the Relay, Movano and Boxer are also all available.

The interior is fairly basic when compared to the very latest large vans, but it’s functional, robust and roomy enough for three passengers. The diesel-powered vans are fitted with BlueHDi engines, with power outputs ranging from 118 to 163bhp. While these engines are a bit noisy, they get the job done.

6. Iveco Daily

While Iveco is more suited to making trucks for heavy haulage, the Iveco Daily is the smallest vehicle that the truck maker builds. 

The Daily comes with a choice of engines, with the light-duty versions featuring a 2.3-litre diesel, and the heavy-duty vans coming with a 3.0-litre diesel with up to 210bhp. That latter engine is offered in vans that exceed the 3.5-tonne LCV weight limit, so you’ll need a CV licence to drive one.

The latest round of updates saw the Daily get a subtly revised look, too, but it’s one that’s designed to deliver greater efficiency over a radical revamp. Driving the Daily needn’t be intimidating, despite being one of the largest panel vans on the market – useful tech like autonomous emergency braking, lane keep assist and crosswind monitoring has been added to make driving easier and safer. The addition of the latest connected services also makes it a good choice for fleet operators.

5. Renault Master/Nissan Interstar

The Renault Master offers a wide range of options in the large van market. With four wheelbase lengths and three roof heights, there’s sure to be a panel van to suit your needs.
