Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

If you want to buy a British-built van, look no further. The Vivaro is still the only model that can proudly wear a 'Made In Britain' badge.

If the Luton-made van does tempt you, we’d recommend the higher-powered of the two 1.5-litre engines if your work requirements allow it. The 118bhp version is sufficient, and the fuel economy it achieves over the 118bhp 2.0-litre engine is worth the slight performance sacrifice.

Overview

The Vauxhall Vivaro is a better and more rounded van than ever. An enormous payload, a wide range of choices and excellent fuel economy are, however, compromised by a compact interior.

  • Wide choice of engines
  • Comfortable ride
  • Huge payload capabilities
  • Cramped interior
  • Changes to loadspace dimensions
