The best large vans to lease this year

The UK’s new van market has grown rapidly in recent years, with manufacturers working hard to develop greener, more efficient models. However, this growth has been mainly supported by the popularity of large vans.

Large vans are an essential asset for many businesses, helping to strike a balance between budget, size, and usability. Access to a fleet of large vans can boost productivity and streamline a business’s operations, making choosing the best large van important.

Choosing between large van lease deals can be difficult, especially if you don’t know which business lease requirements to prioritise. In this guide, we’ll look at the best large vans to lease this year and explain how Synergy can support you when exploring our large van leasing deals.

Best large vans to lease this year

Large van leasing is an affordable and hassle-free way to source your next fleet, but which models should you consider? Here are some of the best large vans to lease with Synergy.

Ford Transit

The Ford Transit is an iconic commercial workhorse and the most obvious choice for van drivers. There are three lengths and two roof heights to choose from, helping it meet a variety of business needs. If you need something more specialist, tipper and dropside versions are also available.

It has a maximum payload of 1,472kg with 15.1 metres of load space. The standard 2.0-litre diesel engine is punchy but still returns up to 40mpg. The all-electric E-Transit is one of the most competent electric vans on the market and a popular addition to a company’s growing electric fleet.

Volkswagen Crafter

The VW Crafter is the largest van in the VW commercial range. It’s a premium alternative to rivals that offers a high-quality interior and great standard equipment. This includes DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity, and a driver alert system.

It has a maximum payload of just over 2000kg and can achieve up to 37mpg. There’s no electric option with the Crafter, so you’ll have to explore the smaller ID.Buzz Cargo if you want an all-electric VW van.

Citroen Relay

The Citroen Relay is a robust large van and an affordable way for businesses to transport commercial goods. It’s the largest van in the Citroen family and maximises load capacity without compromising comfort or economy.

It’s 2.2-litre engine can return up to 47mpg, and the all-electric version has an impressive WLTP range of up to 154 miles.

Vauxhall Movano

The Vauxhall Movano is a common sight on UK roads and a favourite for businesses looking for a reliable large van. Its 2.3-litre turbo diesel engine comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard and can achieve up to 39mpg. An optional automatic version is available on certain models too.

If you need extra passenger space, you could lease the Movano window van instead. This adds an extra row of rear seating. It’s also an excellent option for businesses who regularly transport employees, as well as commercial goods.

Nissan Interstar

The Nissan Interstar is a flexible and efficient large van offering big levels of practicality. It is renowned for impeccable reliability and comes equipped with some handy features. These include cargo floor load mounting hooks, a foldable passenger bench with a rotating table, and soundproofing on the bulkhead.

It can achieve a claimed 32mpg from its 2.3-litre dCi engine, and the L2, H2 variant has a maximum payload of 1522kg.

Renault Master

The Renault Master shares the same platform as the Interstar, which is no bad thing. This third-generation model also has stylish design touches inspired by the Renault car range. It shares the same 2.3-litre turbo diesel engine as the Nissan Interstar, with up to 128bhp and a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard.
