If you spend a lot of time on the road, especially when you’re transporting goods for your business, you need a vehicle that gets you from A to B quickly, efficiently and most of all, reliably.

In this blog we’re looking at three of the best commercial medium-sized vans out there that will give you a consistently great performance and keep your business on the road.


This is a brand that consistently offers you a great performance and it makes sense to start with the Mercedes as one of our top performers.

Quite simply when you’re looking for comfort, payload, space and safety this is where you’ll find it. Mercedes knows that a van that handles like a car is a great bonus for those drivers who spend the majority of their time dealing with the challenges of freeways and traffic.

With some good options on size and fittings, the Mercedes-Benz is one all-rounder you won’t want to miss out on.

Second to the Mercedes and a little lower down on the cost scale is this van from Renault. What it does have in common with the Mercedes is a great driving position and a comfortable cab that allows it to handle, again, like a car with all the responsiveness that goes with that.

The payload is decent with the option to go for a longer wheelbase or more powerful engine if needed. While the cab is a great size for a single driver, additional passengers might find it a little on the small side.

Volkswagen Transporter

Again, available in multiple sizes, the Volkswagen name continues to attract a loyal following of customers.

One of the benefits of this van is the myriad of safety features that come as standard. Everything from adjustable cruise control to automatic post-collision braking and hill assist, all help to make this van a great, safe drive, essential for today’s driver.

In terms of performance, you’re unlikely to beat anyone at the lights but you will find that it offers a consistent performance at higher speeds and can cope with the open roads just fine.

Buying a car can be as simple as heading to but when it comes to buying a commercial vehicle you’re relying on buying something that is going to keep you and your business up and running.

When you’re looking at a medium sized van you’re thinking about your comfort and safety as well as the payload and storage space.

The Mercedes offers the best value for money, in our opinion as a consistently good all-rounder. Get searching online to find the best deals and consider the Renault or the Volkswagen if you’re looking for something a little more affordable that still offer a great alternative to the Mercedes.

Then you’ll be all set to get your business on the road and make driving around the country a pleasure rather than a chore.
