Disco dilemma

Asked by Peter Yacono

I OWN a mobile disco business that has been expanding rapidly over the past six months. I find I now need a larger vehicle to handle the extra lighting, speakers and rigging I need to carry. I considered a Mazda 6, which has a large boot, but I don't think it will be big enough. I've also been thinking of a wagon, but I don't think these would be big enough, either. That's started me thinking about a van, but image is important in my industry. I don't want to turn up to gigs in a Toyota HiAce looking like a tradie. I'm now considering a Mercedes-Benz Vito, but are there any other options. Also, my mother is concerned about my safety in a van. How do they stack up?

SOUNDS like you need a van. The European vans are way ahead of the Japanese rivals in every aspect except price. They can be tricked up with all sorts of accessories that can look very cool. The Vito is worth considering, as are the VW Transporter and the Renault Trafic. If you can get away with a smaller van, look at the VW Caddy. The Japanese vans don't rate highly in crash testing, but the European vans have all the safety systems you'd expect in a passenger car.
