Brace yourself for lots of letters. The Citroen Dispatch HDi 120 6-Speed Manual L1H1 1200 XTR+ is the most expensive version of this capable van. Typing that lot nearly knackered my keyboard. Anyway, this workhorse – which costs £19,130 plus VAT - has plenty of features to compensate for being named after the alphabet. These include its 2.0- litre 120hp diesel engine that averages 39.2mpg and has bucket loads of torque.

The (pause for breath) Citroen Dispatch HDi 120 6-Speed Manual L1H1 1200 XTR+ has a storage volume of 5m3. This equates to a load-length of 2,254mm and a width of 1,600mm. This falls to 1,245mm between the wheel arches. Furthermore, the load-height is 1,499mm so this French load-lugger has plenty of space however it is measured. The only potential issue might be carrying a piece of paper long enough to write its name on.

Standard equipment includes a driver's air-bag, anti-lock brakes, power steering, central locking, and a CD/stereo system. Options include air-conditioning for £800 plus VAT, which is a fair chunk for a relatively basic feature. Cruise control is more affordable at £160 plus VAT, and electric mirrors can be specified for a further £70 plus tax. Perhaps Citroen will throw-in a few freebies for anyone who can remember the van's staggeringly long name.
