The Toyota Hiace has been Australia’s top-selling mid-size van since pretty much forever. The sixth-generation Toyota HiAce is finally here, ushering in the first all-new platform for the nameplate in 15 years. With over 335,000 sales in Australia since its arrival in 1971, the nameplate dominates the mid-size van segment, and has done so for years.
Unsurprisingly, the iconic Ford Transit represents one of the best used vans to buy. With a legacy stretching back to 1965, the model has undergone regular refinement to ensure that performance, efficiency, and running costs continue to be the best available.
The Hyundai iLoad is Australia’s second-best-selling delivery van. The number-two spot isn’t normally something to boast about, but in this case it’s noteworthy when you consider the strength of the competition from Japan and Europe.
Ford Transit Custom
The Transit Custom (the mid-sizer of three Transit models available globally, of which only two come to Australia) is actually an integral part of life in the UK and Europe, and because of this Ford has long given the Custom more attention than many other van makers. Where the Hiace is pretty much just a tradie van the Custom is very unvanlike. Available are things like sporty models with racing stripes, body kits and alloy wheels. You can even buy the Transit Custom Sport in Australia now too.
With an array of body types available – ranging from haulage options, 4x4s and people carriers – the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter not only features the exceptional build quality associated with this high-end manufacturer, but also the performance.
The Volkswagen name is synonymous with reliability, so it’s no surprise that the Volkswagen Transporter makes the list of the ten most reliable used vans. With five engine options and a versatile load space, choosing the Transporter will prove rewarding.
Also boasting the attributes of the Volkswagen marque is the Volkswagen Caddy. Stylish, agile, and available in a range of engine sizes, the Caddy is among the most popular compact vans in Australia for good reason.
Mercedes-Benz doesn’t have a name for delivering premium quality for no reason. Powerful and stylish, with a cabin that offers a car-like quality, the Mercedes-Benz Vito is pleasant to drive and capable of any task.
Aside from the Ford Transit, the is probably the most familiar name to those searching for a commercial van. Featuring exceptional technology, economical engines, and versatile loadspaces, there is always a Renault Trafic available for any business need.
You should be able to tell just by the look of the new Master that there’s a new design with a more modern looking front-end. And the inside has been thoroughly modernised, too.
