In a segment where competition is fierce, the Dispatch offers a cheaper alternative to the likes of the Mercedes-Benz Vito, Volkswagen Transporter, and the Renault Trafic. The fact that it’s a cost-effective, reliable workhorse has made it one of the most prevalent vans amongst tradesman throughout the whole country. Practicality levels are high with the Dispatch, it has an impressive amount of space in the cabin and in the back. It’s pretty well kitted out too, and everything is neatly laid out and very easy to use. On the road, it is definitely one of the best and easiest in class to drive. Visibility is really good, the driving position is spot on, and the small dimensions mean there isn’t too big a blind spot at the back. It handles well, the steering is pretty sharp albeit vague-ish, and the ride quality is quite smooth on the move.
Look Out For
• It might handle like a car, but there are more blind spots
What we like
• It really is great value for money; cheap to buy and run
• Feels like you’re sat in a car when in the cabin
