    Citroen Dispatch, Peugeot Expert or the Fiat version. Two side loading doors, 3 front seats and they carry about a tonne. Buy one with a bulkhead fitted.

    Yes mate if there is a 1.6 version for the right price just make sure it has been very well serviced there is a issue with the turbo feed pipe on these causing oil starvation to the turbo
    That being said I ran one for 2 year with no issues as the first thing I did was to the gauze filter out of the feed pipe
