How it copes with people and clutter
The Boxer stars for its ability to carry big weights, and by combining that with a large load volume too it is, by our reckoning, the most practical van in the class.
Maximum volume is 17m3, but there are also a range of options from 8m3 built off three wheelbases (3m, 3.45m and 4.03m) with four body lengths and three heights to choose from. The headline figure is a maximum 1575kg payload, but an average 3.5-tonne van will still permit more than 1200kg, which makes it one of the best vans in the large van segment for weight hungry users.
