Cheapest Euro 6 diesel van deals

Here are some of the best deals around for the latest diesel van deals that meet the latest tough Euro 6 emissions regulations

When you’re looking at a van and your budget is tight, you might think that the older and cheaper the van, the more money you’ll save.

But actually that’s not necessarily true – a nearly new van. Could end up cheaper to run. It might cost more to finance in the first place, but you could save thousands of pounds each year, as cities prepare to set up low emissions zones that will impose hefty charges on older and more polluting vehicles.

Currently, any diesel vehicle entering London’s ultra-low emissions zone and which doesn’t meet the latest Euro 6 emissions standards, attracts as £12.50 daily charge (on top of the regular congestion charge) to drive in London. A similar charge applies in Bath from March 2021, and in Birmingham from June 2021.

Only diesel vans that meet the Euro 6 standards will be exempt from the charges and free to drive through the zones. Rules are less strict for petrol vehicles, so petrol vans registered since 2006 should avoid the charges. Electric vans are free to enter the zones too.

What is Euro 6 for vans?

Euro 6 standards set limits for toxic exhaust compounds that are harmful to health. Every new van sold since September 2016 has had to comply with the regulations, and most earlier models don't (they only meet Euro 5 standards), which means that your choice of used Euro 6 diesel vans is limited to newer models.

If you're travelling into a low emission zone regularly, then a van that's exempt from charges may well be a necessity. Fortunately, there are some models that won't break the bank. We've listed the cheapest below.

Cheapest Euro 6 van deals

1. Ford Fiesta van

Best cheap Euro 6 van for fitting in tight spaces

Euro 6 diesel Ford Fiesta Van deals Limited stock
Loadspace 1,000 litres
Payload 500kg
Fuel economy 76.4mpg

If you don’t regularly haul huge loads, a car-based van might just do you. These types of vans are as easy to park, are great for nipping in and out of traffic, and are generally more economical than larger vans.
The Ford Fiesta is the best of this bunch, and is much the same as the excellent Ford Fiesta supermini, albeit with the rear seats ripped out.
It’s worth noting, though, that diesel versions of the Fiesta van were discontinued in August 2020.

2. Fiat Doblo

Best cheap Euro 6 van for adaptability

Euro 6 diesel Fiat Doblo deals Limited stock
Loadspace 3,400 litres
Payload 750kg
Fuel economy 58.9mpg

The Fiat Doblo is almost mechanically identical to the Vauxhall Combo found further down this list. However, the Fiat does have adaptability on its side.

There are two choices of body lengths and two choices of roof height. This results in four versions. The Cargo Van (standard length and height), the Cargo Max (longer), the Cargo High Roof (taller), and the Cargo XL, which combines the longest height and length.

Four trim levels are also on offer, and there are four engines too - one petrol and three diesels.

3. Renault Kangoo

Best cheap Euro 6 van for bargain hunters

Euro 6 diesel Renault Kangoo deals from £8,995
Monthly finance from £218*
Loadspace 3,000 litres
Payload 650kg
Fuel economy 61.4mpg

The no-frills Kangoo was updated in 2016 to meet Euro 6 emissions standards, and there are two body styles to choose from; standard and Maxi.

There are three diesel engines on offer; the 75, the 90, and the 110. Each number denotes the hp figure of each engine. The 75 is not available with the Maxi model.

It’s massively popular with fleet buyers, which ensures there are plenty of examples on the used market.

And if you’re really keen on reducing your carbon footprint, it’s also available as an electric van called the Z.E. This has a real-world range of around 75 miles, certainly enough for delivery drivers in cities.

4. Citroen Berlingo

Best cheap Euro 6 van for clever interiors

Euro 6 diesel Citroen Berlingo deals from £8,299
Monthly finance from £201*
Loadspace 3,300 litres
Payload 636kg
Fuel economy 68.9mpg

An all-new Berlingo hit the showrooms in 2018, which means the old one (pictured) is a bit of a bargain at the moment.

Although it is feeling a bit dated, models from 2016 onwards are Euro 6 compliant, and are definitely worthy of your consideration.

The Berlingo has a clever interior, which is most welcome if you spend the majority of your working day in one. It also has a service interval of every 20,000 miles - a gargantuan mileage, minimising the down-time of a business.

5. Vauxhall Combo

Best cheap Euro 6 van for all-round ability

Euro 6 diesel Vauxhall Combo deals Limited stock
Loadspace 3,400
Payload 750kg
Fuel economy 56.5mpg

A new Combo was launched in 2018, which is mechanically identical to the Citroen Berlingo. But while the newer vans are nigh-on the same, the older versions are not. It's the previous-generation Combo we're talking about here.

Engine options include a 1.4-litre petrol, a 1.3-litre diesel, and a 1.6-litre diesel. There is also a 2.0-litre diesel engine available on the used market, but this is not compliant with Euro 6 rules.

Sportive spec is the trim to go for, as it gets air-conditioning, an overhead shelf, load floor covering, and a soundproofed bulkhead.

6. Renault Trafic

Best cheap Euro 6 van for size

Euro 6 diesel Renault Trafic deals Limited stock
Loadspace up to 8,600 litre
Payload up to 1,459 litres
Fuel economy up to 47.2mpg

If you think the Trafic looks surprisingly similar to some other vans, then you’ll find it easy to understand that it actually shares mechanical bits and body panels with the Nissan NV300, Fiat Talento and older Vauxhall Vivaro models.

The good news is that it is cheaper than the others by and large on the used market, while it comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, all of which have plenty of space in the rear for equipment or other cargo.

Business trim level is the pick - you get a fold down middle passenger seat, perfect for whipping out your laptop and using it as a mobile office.
