A van doesn’t get to its 50th birthday if it’s not a success and the current Transit’s position on this list assured because on top of being a great drive, there is a wide choice of models.

The best version yet of this Ford van, this workhorse also has plenty of  kit in standard specification, a good choice of load volumes, powertrain choices including all-wheel drive, and plenty of safety kit.

Another new van on this list for 2015 is the all-new Vauxhall Vivaro. Building on the success of the previous generation van, the new Vivaro is even more refined, comfortable and has a practical load area.

On top the load area, the latest Vivaro, like the co-developed Renault Trafic, has a lower car-like driving position, is well-equipped and the build quality is sturdy.
