Vans have been overlooked for a long time in the sporting industry. However, there are vans built for sports that are capable of proving themselves as sports machines like any other type of sports vehicles. Here are the five most competitive vans that could support you at your extreme sport:

Ford Transit Mk4

The model was first introduced in 2000 and its buyers had an option of picking either a front wheel or rear wheel drive. In 2006, Ford introduced the Ford Transit Mk4 featuring several improvements. They included a better interior with focus on comfort. In addition, it featured new TDCi engines with better economy and lower emissions. The sports van has big alloy wheels, sports-styled trim, and racing stripes. It has gone on to become one of the most adorable and efficient vans on the market.

Toyota Sienna SE

Toyota’s minivan is one of the latest top vans built for sports. The 2016 version is fitted with a powerful but noisy V6 engine. Its steering is properly weighted and it has balanced handling with little body lean. In addition, it has a standard six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. The available 4WD, strong breaks, and suspensions are made for sports. With it, you are sure to have a smooth, easy drive. Its safety features and reliability have qualified it as a favourite of many sports drivers.

Volkswagen Transporter

The vehicle stands for nothing short of reliability and luxury. The Euro 5 engines are quiet and smooth. Its newest features include Active Cruise Control, Lane Change Assist, High Beam Assist and Automatic Post-Collision Braking. The Transporter version with 4WD system and mechanical differential lock gives it the ability to perform any sports task, even in poor weather conditions.

Mercedes Vito

The latest model of the van is offered in both front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive. It has two wheelbases and three lengths. The rear-wheel version’s engine is modified to give out powerful low-end pull and ability to cruise with ease. It has a six-speed manual gearbox which comes together with a 7G – TRONIC seven-speed auto. While driving it, you will have a more confident feel of the road with smoother acceleration on corners and excellent traction on slippery roads.

Vauxhall Vivaro

This van deserves thumbs up for its power to cover long distances without major incidences making it ideal for long-distance sports. Although it does not offer standard Electronic Stability Control like other types of vans, it still ranks as one of the most reliable ones. It has a six-speed gearbox which lessens engine noise.
