The Vauxhall Viva is easy to drive in town and comfortable enough, but it does little to stand out against the best city carsget the best price
This entry-level trim is sparsely equipped. Among the limited features are cruise control, Bluetooth and a USB port, although if you want Vauxhall’s touchscreen infotainment system with a DAB radio, you can add it as an optional extra. Air conditioning is also on the options list.
Engine: 1.0 
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.
