How it copes with people and clutter

Pick-up trucks have some inherent disadvantages, from the height of the load bay, through to its depth and the difficulty securing it. None of these, though, are true of a van.

However, consequently it's worth noting that the four-wheel-drive system in the Combo Cargo 4x4 brings with it a 110kg weight penalty over the front-wheel-drive model, and this affects the van’s maximum payload – 892kg for the short-wheelbase (L1) model and 848kg for the long-wheelbase (L2). However, the load volume is unchanged: 3.3m3 in L1 and 3.9m3 in L2 vans.

Vehicles used off-road are often required to tow, be it a trailer for equipment or even livestock. The Combo Cargo 4x4's 1.2-tonne towing capacity should be enough for a small trailer, although it’s considerably less than the 3.5 tonnes that most pick-up trucks can pull.
