Citroen Berlingo L1
The Berlingo is one of the smallest vans on our list, and recently underwent a design facelift in 2015. It’s also one of the cheapest to lease and run too, making it the perfect business van choice if you have a stricter budget to work with. There is a comprehensive range of the Citroen Berlingo, so there are plenty of adjustments available when it comes to bodystyles and payload options. Whichever model you opt for, you’ll get the benefit of satnav, a dual passenger seat, a range of economical engines and a comfortably refined ride.
Volkswagen Crafter CR35

It also makes for a great company van if you’re after something more economical, as you have the choice of opting for one of the BlueMotion Technology models. The smallest model of the Crafter offers drivers a 2600mm-long loading bay, and the largest model can easily handle 5 Euro-pallets. Of course there is a huge range of volumes and payloads to choose from.
Renault Trafic SWB
For those interested in getting one of the best panel vans on the market, you won’t be disappointed with the reliable Renault Trafic. The Trafic has an excellent balance of economical engines and incredibly practical loading areas. The interior is also especially comfortable, with a funky and contemporary design. If you do go for the Renault Trafic, one of the most useful additions to buy is the Renault hands-free keycard. As long as you have the keycard in your pocket, you can open the doors and start the engine, without having to get your keys out.
Our pickup of choice is the Isuzu D-Max, which is a cheap business van lease with decent fuel economy, strong engines and a sturdy build. It may not have the same amount of space as some panel vans, but it’s definitely a business lease to consider. The interior is light, airy and genuinely pleasant, with plenty of head and legroom; enough for five adults to sit comfortably. You also get some great kit as standard, including a CD player, iPod connector, Bluetooth and air-con. Of course if you want more tech to play with, you can opt for one of the higher-spec models.
