Citroen Relay/Peugeot Boxer - best large panel vans

No-nonsense panel vans offer plenty of space and even electric drive

Like the Renault Master and Nissan NV400, the Citroen Relay and Peugeot Boxer are essentially the same van, but with different badges on the nose. And like its French counterpart, there's plenty of variety in the range, too.

There are four lengths in three wheelbases and three roof heights on offer, which means cargo volumes range from 8-17 cubic metres, while a payload of up to 1.44 tonnes is available if that's what's important to you.

Like rivals, there are off-the-shelf conversions also offered, with Luton, dropside, tipper, box body and even curtainside versions available direct from dealers. And like rivals, Citroen and Peugeot offer electric versions of the Relay and Boxer.

In the cab, it's pretty basic when compared to the very latest large vans, but it's functional and roomy for three across the cab.

Power comes from BlueHDi diesels ranging from 110 to 160 power outputs, and while they're a bit noisy, they get the job done.
