Mercedes-Benz eVito review

Mercedes-Benz eVito review

Ideal for low mileage commuters and taxi drivers, the electric Mercedes-Benz eVito feels surprisingly like a diesel van on the road.
Maxus T90 EV review 2023 | The Van Expert

Maxus T90EV review

The Maxus T90EV is the UK's first electric pick-up truck. How does it drive and should you consider one for your business?
Isuzu D-Max review

Isuzu D-Max DL40 review

The Isuzu D-Max is one of the few pick-ups now available to buy new in the UK, so when it’s time for a new truck, is it worth considering? 
LEVC VN5 range-extender electric van review | The Van Expert

LEVC VN5 review

The LEVC VN5 is a distinctly different kind of van, from its petrol-assisted electric drivetrain to its unique shape. But it is any good?

2020 Mercedes-Benz EQV review

Mercedes-Benz EQV test drive

The way the electric powertrain has been integrated really impresses. As an electric MPV option, the Mercedes-Benz EQV is hard to beat.
Ford Transit Custom PHEV review

Ford Transit Custom PHEV test drive

A plug-in hybrid motor is a great addition to the Ford Transit Custom line-up, offering businesses a new way to cut their carbon footprints.
Ford Transit Connect Sport review

Ford Transit Connect Sport test drive

The Sport spec certainly sharpens up the look of the Ford Transit Connect, but it doesn't change the vehicle's practicality as a small delivery van.
Isuzu D-Max XTR review | The Van Expert

Isuzu D-Max XTR test drive

The Isuzu D-Max XTR may be old-school, but it’s bristling with charm. It might not be as refined as rivals but it has more genuine off-road capability.
Mitsubishi L200 review 2019

Mitsubishi L200 test drive

As a commercial prospect, the Mitsubishi L200 makes a lot of sense. Its off-road capabilities and towing capabilities are impressive.
Mercedes-Benz V-Class test drive | The Van Expert

Mercedes-Benz V-Class test drive

Other MPVs may match the Mercedes-Benz V-Class for pople-moving ability, but few can rival its premium feeling and car-like driving style.
Ford Transit review 2019 | The Van Expert

Ford Transit test drive

The heavily-revised Ford Transit retains its crown as the go-to large van, but we're not convinced of the real-world benefits of the mild hybrid system.

Vauxhall Vivaro review

The all-new Vauxhall Vivaro is a significant improvement, and will ensure that the Vauxhall is a prime alternative to the dominant Ford Transit Custom.
Volkswagen Amarok Aventura review wallpaper | The Van Expert

Volkswagen Amarok Aventura test drive

Does the VW Amarok Aventura offer enough over the Highline spec? Only just. But in terms of a go-everywhere, do-everything pick-up, it's hard to beat.
Ford Fiesta Sport Van test drive 2019 | The Van Expert

Ford Fiesta Sport Van test drive

The Ford Fiesta Sport Van might not be the most useful van on the market, but for its sheer car-like feel it deserves high praise.
