Introduction

What Car? says...

The Vauxhall Vivaro is one of the best-selling vans in the UK and, importantly, it's built here too.

Today, it is based on the Citroën Dispatch and Peugeot Partner vans - all made by its parent company, PSA Group.

As such, there are some similarities: the turbocharged diesel engines, for instance, much of the interior and even some of the exterior all carry a familiar if not identical look.

Buyers must also weigh up new dimensions, especially if they have previously bought older versions of the Vivaro. The option of two different lengths remains, but both standard and long-wheelbase vans have become ever so slightly smaller, yet payload has increased by a massive 200kg on some models.

Trim levels have been updated too, with Edition and Sportive joined by a new Elite option. All three have received an uplift in specification , making the Vivaro better value for money than ever.
