The Corolla Commercial is a unique proposition: it’s cheap to run thanks to its hybrid engine, practical, and more comfortable to drive than many of its van-based rivals. And for those reasons, it's the best car-derived van you can buy.

Top-spec Excel models come with all the trimmings, adding a head-up display, adaptive high beam, lane-keeping assist and rear-cross traffic alert. It’s a bit too expensive to recommend, though.

With 138bhp at its disposal, the entry-level 1.8 Hybrid has more than enough power to quickly get up to motorway speeds or when you need a burst of speed to overtake. Better still, the petrol engine and electric motor working together means that it can officially manage over 60mpg.
