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.

While the entry-level engine has plenty of power to offer, those after more performance will want to look at the 2.0 Hybrid. With power increased to 193bhp, it has the ability to sprint from 0-62mph in just 7.7sec and even more versatility when it comes to overtaking. Despite the extra power, it should still manage around 60mpg.
