The surveillance van is a small, black, boxed shaped van which has a signal antenna and a CCTV camera mounted on top. Like the name suggests, it is used as a way to follow people around and record them.
The Surveillance Van is fairly well-rounded and versatile for an early-game vehicle. Its toughness in particular is sustainable enough to allow it to endure a good number of crashes, and it can handle corners quite well due to its responsive steering ability. Although its speed and acceleration aren't up to par, it can still keep up with most early-game mission objectives, and makes for a good alternative to the Family Sedan.
