The van is essential to many small businesses, and these unsung workhorses help to keep the struggling UK economy afloat. Here we take a look at the 10 most popular vans in Britain.

The Ford Transit

The iconic transit was launched way back in 1965 and has become the van of choice for many small businesses. The Transit has been called 'The Backbone of Britain' and is known for its reliability, versatility and ease of driving. A new transit costs around £17,000 and used ones are much cheaper.

The Transit is undoubtedly the UK's number one van and is also a very popular hire vehicle. In fact, there is one company offering van hire in Cannock, Staffordshire that has a Transit with more than 200,000 on the clock that has only ever needed minor repairs.

The Transit Connect

The Transit's baby brother, the Connect combines the flexibility of a small van with the reliability of it's big bro. Priced at just £11,000, the Connect offers an impressive volume of 3.4 cubic metres.

The Mercedes Sprinter.

Another iconic symbol of the UK economy, the Sprinter matches the Transit for reliability but does it with much more style. It is also one of the safest vans on the market, but its new price of just over £20,000 is off-putting to some small companies.

The Peugeot 207

One of the best small vans around, the 207 is perfect for one-man operations and can be bought new for just £8,000. It can also deliver a very impressive 65 miles per gallon.

The Peugeot Bipper

Peugeot again, this time the slightly larger Bipper. A new Bipper will set you back around £8,500 and is offered with a huge range of options. It has a capacity of 2.8 cubic metres and a turning circle of around 10 metres, making it great in tight situations.

The Vauxhall Combo

The cheapest van in the list at around 8,000. This may be about the same as the 207, but the Combo has more space in the front and rear and is also very cheap to run.

The Renault Kangoo

Also very affordable to run, but more expensive at £9,500, the Kangoo boasts a 3 cubic metre load capacity, a higher standard spec and an economical diesel engine.

The VW Caddy

The Caddy comes in two forms. The smaller version has a capacity of 3.2 cubic metres while the long wheelbase version can hold 4.2 cubic metres. However, you do pay more for all that comes with the VW badge - the Caddy starts at £16,500.

The Renault Trafic

A Transit lookalike, the Trafic comes in a range of styles and capacities. However, for £19,400 you would want it to match the reliability of the Transit, which, unfortunately, it fails to do.

The Citroen Berlingo

This nippy little van sits somewhere between small vans and Transit-sized workhorses. It is available with a capacity of 3.3 or 4.1 cubic metres and is available from £10,625. It may have a silly name, then again so does the Kangoo, but the Berlingo can deliver over 60 miles per gallon.
