Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

If you’re in the market for something that can carry up to eight people, you’ll be expecting a decent amount of interior space. We’re happy to report that you get plenty in the Vauxhall Vivaro Life. The eight seats are more like living-room chairs if judged by the amount of padding they have, with armrests provided for all. You, as the driver, get a seat that’s just as comfy, but, if you like to rest your arm on the top of the door panel while driving, you’ll find the hard plastic trim quite uncomfortable.

Although you won't find any soft-touch plastic, the Vivaro Life's interior is a pleasing enough place in which to pass a journey. Importantly the places you’ll most likely touch in the Vivaro, such as the steering wheel and gear-lever, have a quality feel to them.

All models get a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that's positioned fairly high up on the dashboard where it’s easy to reach. However, the screen isn’t all that large in the context of the car's huge interior, so some might find the icons a little too small – you may find yourself leaning closer to the screen just to get a better look. Other than that, the built-in sat-nav is easy to use thanks to logical menus and quick reaction times. If you don’t like the Vauxhall system you can always hook up your phone via its standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
