How it copes with people and clutter

With front- and rear-wheel-drive vans that offer similar capabilities, it’s easy to get a little muddled in the details. L1, L2 or L3 length vehicles are available as front-wheel-drive vans (FWD), while L1 models can have a standard or high roof and L2 and L3 get the option of either a high or extra-high roof. Rear-wheel-drive vans (RWD) come in L3 and L4 lengths, with the choice of high and extra-high roofs.

That means that FWD vans have a maximum load volume of 14.8m3, while the RWD vans can accommodate as much as 17m3.

That means the Movano is one of the better large vans for carrying weight, surpassing key rivals like the Ford Transit in most guises.

The rear loadspace gets a side loading door on the nearside, with twin rear doors that open to 180 degrees as standard. There’s also the option of 270 -degree opening rear doors. The shortest wheelbase vans get six load-lashing points, while L2 and L3 vans get eight and L4 models receive 10. Full height plywood protective lining is an option on all vans, along with a plywood floor protector. LED rear lighting is standard.
