LCV reviews

The latest van, pick-up and 4x4 reviews from The Van Expert crew

Ineos Grenadier Utility Wagon test drive

The Ineos Grenadier is an impressive off-road workhorse with a surprising amount of character, and delivers on its brief of replacing the original Land Rover Defender – warts and all...

Nissan Townstar EV review

If the Nissan Townstar EV's working range and charging requirements align with your company's usage, it's a great little van.

Volkswagen Amarok review

The Volkswagen Amarok is every bit as comfortable and capable as the Ford Ranger, but is arguably a more stylish offering.

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 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 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 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?

Ford E-Transit review

The E-Transit is an impressive vehicle that really brings electric power into the mainstream. It's an effective, practical vehicle that could prove a reliable workhorse for many businesses.

Ford Pro and E-Transit first drive

We take Ford's first electric van for a drive and explain the Ford Pro support network that will underpins every new Ford LCV.

Volkwagen Multivan review

Unlike previous Transporter-based versions, the new Volkswagen Multivan is based on the VW Golf. Does that make it a better people carrier?

Review: Citroën e-Berlingo and Peugeot e-Partner

The Van Expert gets behind the wheel of the Peugoet e-Partner and Citroën ë-Berlingo, new from Stellantis.

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 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 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 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 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

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 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.

Volkswagen Transporter test drive

The Volkswagen Transporter has long been regarded as one of the best vans on sale today, and that continues with the updated T6.1 series.

Ford Ranger Raptor review

60-second summary What is it?The Ford Ranger Raptor is a range-topping version of the pick-up with significant off-road upgrades. Key featuresBody styling, suspension upgrade, off-road electronic...

Twin test: Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vs Volkswagen Crafter

Choosing between the Volkswagen Crafter and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is as difficult today as it was a few years ago when they were basically the same van.

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 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

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.
