The cab of this van feels deceptive. When you get in you do not feel as though it is a typical van; it feels as though you have just gotten into a modern car. Features such as the large infotainment system, digital display, and comfortable seats all make the cabin a pleasing place to be.
You may recognise the high-quality focus points as they are from Volvo. In fact, the entire cab is from Volvo, and we feel it works really well. Our maintenance controller Rory Palmer confirmed that if he was to have this van as his daily work vehicle he would be very happy due to how the cab feels to be in. However, the best suited opinions on this van are from those tradespeople who would use it on a regular basis as part of their work.
We spoke to a few from a local building firm to see what they think about the modern interior. One builder said that the inside is stylish and they could definitely get used to the different look. They did however find it a little bit impractical; pointing out missing armrests and lots of empty space that could have been better utilised for storage. Another detrimental factor was the centre console, holding the stop/start dial and drive selector. Although aesthetically pleasing, the area would have been much more functional if it had cup holders or housed a pocket for storage.
