If you want a camper van you can buy straight from a dealer with a manufacturer’s warranty, the Mercedes Marco Polo is our top choice. It’s not the cheapest to buy, but it has a feature-packed and plush interior that’s easy to convert from transportation device to living area. It’s good to drive and refined for a camper, making it a better bet than key rivals.

Although we could only manage 0-60mph in 13.0sec during our tests, we’d argue the 161bhp 2.0-litre diesel 220d is all the engine you need in a Marco Polo. There’s enough low down poke, it’s refined and it’s not like you’re going to drive a camper van quickly, is it? Only available with a smooth nine-speed automatic gearbox and in Sport trim.
