Coming in at 5th place on our list of the most popular vans among courier drivers is the Mercedez-Benz Vito. With plenty of space to transport everything from parcels to people, the Vito offers you plenty of flexibility.

If you’re looking for an electric option, you could also have a look at the eVito, which has the same dimensions as the standard van, but is charged with Alternating Current. You can also customise your Vito by choosing from a range of optional enhancements.

4. Renault Trafic

The Renault Trafic is the perfect mix of robustness and endurance. With an interior designed to keep you comfortable at work and a number of added safety and security features.

When you work as a courier driver, an efficient vehicle can help you save a fair amount of money on fuel with the mileage you cover. The Trafic is also available with a 2.0L engine which, combined with its automatic dual clutch gearbox, makes for fuel efficient driving.

3. Vauxhall Vivaro

The Vauxhall Vivaro is a spacious option, with a load volume of 6.6m3 and payload up to 1400kg. If you’re looking for an electric option, the Vivaro-e can help you keep your emissions down.

There are a range of models available, which vary both in terms of the features they offer and their price. The Vivaro has also been recognised for its practicality, winning the “Medium Van: Best for practicality” WHATCAR? 2021 award.

2. Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

Taking the silver medal is the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. The Sprinter is a larger van, known for its durability and reliability. There are a range of options in terms of size, so you can get a van that has as much space as you need for your courier work.

The all-electric eSprinter is also available if you’re looking to reduce your van’s emissions, which is a great option for last-mile delivery drivers working in urban areas.
