“We’re filling a gap in the market for a small mini-van which has existed for several years since the demise of the Suzuki Carry and Daihatsu HiJet,” said Peter Seaward, DFSK UK’s, marketing communications manager.

The range DFSK range, which will go on sale this summer, will initially comprise of the C31 single cab minitruck, C32 double cab minitruck, C35 panel van and the C37 minivan.
