    I would go for the Sprinter, used to drive one at my old work. Exellent van, handles well, pulls well with alot of weight in the back. Used to drive to London and back alot, was a good ride.

    Its French + its a Citroen. no more reasons needed. IMO you can't compare Merc or VW to a Citroen.

    as above the vw and the merc are built in the same shed, the citreon or should i say shitreon is just rubbish.

    IMO it would be the vw, they have quite a good spec on them!

    i was just thinking that i could get extras fitted too the citroen for the same money as the vw/merc,as i will be driving it and the more goodies the better..if it was too keep having problems the company would take all the hassle not me. but it looks like the citroen an't got many fans..uumm got me thinking now! i thought the citroen was a good engine but i know they look cheap..no?

    There are still alot of niggles being found with the Citroen, so i would go with either the VW or Merc for now. I currently drive a '08 plate 311 merc for work and the mpg is poor compared to the older model it replaced.
