What is a crew cab van?
A crew van, also known as a double cab van, a double cab in van (DCIV) or kombi, provides more passenger seating than traditional vans. The extra seating allows the transportation of work teams and business materials in a singular vehicle. It’s a simple formula; a panel van design that sees a second fold-out seating bench added in behind the front seats. The crew van conversion combines the ability to carry extra passengers whilst maintaining an ample load space. This conversion becomes incredibly practical. Crew cab vans are increasingly popular for business contract hire and leasing across the UK. Both with businesses that need to take workers on-site and owner-operators who need their van to double up as a family car at the weekends.
Popular crew vans
For small compact vans, consider the Citroen Berlingo, the Peugeot Partner, and the Nissan NV200, plus there’s the Ford Transit Connect Double Cab. If you need something a little bigger, the key player is Volkswagen’s Transporter Kombi. You may also want to look at the Ford Transit Custom Cab-in-Van or the Vauxhall Vivaro Doublecab – or Crew van versions of the Mercedes Vito, the Citroen Dispatch, the Renault Trafic, the Peugeot Expert, the Fiat Talento, the Nissan NV300 or the Toyota Proace. If only a huge Crew van will do, the market leader in the UK is the Ford Transit Cab-in-Van. Close behind in popularity is the Mercedes Sprinter Dualiner or larger still; look at minibuses.
