it is tempt­ing to let the price de­ter­mine the sale, but while the top Mercedes-Benz V-Class Avant­garde cost R135 396 more thanthe top of the range, all-wheel drive Car­avelle, the ba­sic VW Car­avelle Com­fort­line costs R42 319 more than the en­try-level V-Class.

Bet­ter then to let the dealer’s trade-in and dis­count de­ter­mine where you shop. But which one to pick, as they are all so close? This de­pends on what you want to achieve with the van. If it to qui­etly show you have, in­deed, ar­rived, let the Merc do the talk­ing.

If it is to get to the farm, VW’s 4Mo­tion will get through.

For any­thing else, like pupil or busi­ness trans­port, may we sug­gest van buy­ers also check out Hyundai’s H1 or Ford’s Tran­sit.
