Parkers – the definitive resource for car buying advice in the UK – has partnered Angling Times to bring you the award for the Best Medium Van in the prestigious Parkers New Car Awards 2022. The winner is the Ford Transit Custom, one of a total of 20 award winners revealed by Parkers (27th September, 2021).
The Ford Transit Custom is a phenomenon. It outsells every other van in the UK by a huge margin, and for good reason – it’s innovative, enjoyable to drive and good looking. The widest range of trim levels means there’s a version to suit every kind of buyer, while clever tech includes a plug-in hybrid and built-in connectivity that’s useful to businesses of all sizes. Outstanding, even with a brand-new model on the horizon.
Parkers van and pickup editor CJ Hubbard said: ‘With a choice of models that ranges from no-nonsense work vans to bodykits and big wheels, plus high payload ratings, high traction versions and even a plug-in hybrid variant, the Transit Custom has a breadth and depth of appeal that no other medium van can match. Being a pleasure to drive – and stylish with it – is the icing on the top.’
It finishes ahead of the Toyota Proace and the Volkswagen Transporter, both of which are well-made finished and backed up with an efficient network of specialists.
The winning van has been tested rigorously by the Parkers.co.uk team, which judged the best medium vans on a combination of value, quality, reliability, cost-per-month on finance deals and fitness-for-purpose.
Keith Adams, Parkers.co.uk editor, added: ‘In this year’s New Car Awards, we’re excited to have come up with such an interesting selection of winners. We’ve taken what we know about what our users are viewing on Parkers, with the team’s combined 100+ years of editorial expertise.
