Winner of What Van? magazine's small panel van of the year award twice this decade, the versatile, practical Peugeot Expert is a first-class choice when it comes to sheer load-carrying ability. Modest dimensions belie the capacious load space inside – this is a van which you can cram full of cargo and still slip into that tricky parking space.
The Expert can haul a payload of up to 6.6 cubic metres or 1,500kg – there's space for three Euro pallets – and tow a trailer of up to 2,500kg. Built on the same platform as the Citroen Dispatch and Toyota Proace, it's available as a panel van, crew van, platform cab or nine-seater combi. All models have twin sliding side doors, providing excellent access, and six or eight tie-down points to keep cargo secure.
The cabin is comfortable, with ample storage including cup holders, a high shelf with a lip and door bins deep enough for a flask or bottle. In three-seater models, the centre seat folds down to make a table. A DAB radio with Bluetooth is standard across the range, and the driver's seat offers plenty of height, rake, reach and lumbar adjustment so you can get comfortable.
On the road, the Expert's beefiness turns to car-like breeziness, reflecting its design roots in the Peugeot 308. It's poised, composed and comfortable whatever speed you're doing, with good grip in tricky conditions. Power steering as standard, a tight turning circle of up to 12.4m, and excellent visibility thanks to the high driver's seat makes the Expert very easy to manoeuvre around town.
There's a choice of 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre diesel engines, with outputs ranging from 94bhp to 178bhp, torque of up to 295lb ft and fuel economy of up to 55.4mpg. Standard safety kit includes hill start assist, rear fog lights, driver and passenger airbags and ABS with electronic stability control and emergency braking assistance. A spare wheel is also standard.
