Parkers – the definitive resource for car buying advice in the UK – has partnered What’s The Best to bring you the award for the Best Small Van in its prestigious New Car Awards 2023. The winner is the Toyota Proace City, and it is one of a total of 24 award winners revealed by Parkers.

The Proace City wins against some serious opposition, not least the three vans from Citroen, Peugeot and Vauxhall which it’s almost identical to. But it stands ahead of its sister vans because of the Toyota difference – that means you get manufacturer warranty support for up to 10 years from a dealer network that’s famed for being up there with the best for customer support.

Parkers editor Keith Adams said: 'The Proace City's winning ways continue, taking top spot in this category for the third year in a row. It’s great to drive, with efficient, refined diesel engines and a comfortable cab. And the best models will carry over a ton of payload, which makes it highly useful for such a small van. This is a great small van that’s elevated over its siblings thanks to the ownership experience.'

It finishes ahead of the Citroen Berlingo, Peugeot Partner and Vauxhall Combo, which are great to drive and supremely fit for purpose and the Ford Transit Connect, which is agile to drive and has excellent dealer support.

Now in its sixth year, the Parkers New Car Awards 2023 continues to reflect the views of Britain’s car-buying public, with winners decided by a combination of the site’s expert reviewers’ verdicts in thousands of miles of road testing and the purchasing habits of the website’s 2.3+ million users actively involved in the buying process.
