Agility vs 4Motion
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.
