The Vauxhall Viva is easy to drive in town and comfortable enough, but it does little to stand out against the best city cars

Trim:

SL

This gets you Vauxhall’s OnStar in-car concierge service, as well as climate control and 15in alloy wheels. You still need to pay extra for the touchscreen infotainment system, though, so SL trim doesn’t make much sense.

Engine:

1.0 [73]

The Viva’s 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine revs smoothly and delivers its power progressively, so it's perfectly acceptable around town. Get onto faster roads, though, and you’ll need to change down a couple of gears and rev it hard if you want even a moderate burst of acceleration. The Kia Picanto 1.25 and VW Up 1.0 TSI 90 offer much more relaxed acceleration and struggle less up inclines.
