Vauxhall’s all-new Viva has been nominated for its first honour, the What Car? Reader Award 2015, months before its launch date.


Due to be unveiled in summer next year, Vauxhall’s all-new five-door entry-level model faces a What Car? readers’ vote for the most eagerly anticipated car of 2015.


Readers can vote at http://www.whatcar.com/readeraward and the winner will be announced on Wednesday 7 January 2015 at the 38th annual What Car? Car of the Year Awards.


“We’re delighted Viva has picked up its first award nomination ahead of its launch next summer,” said Tim Tozer, Vauxhall’s Chairman and Managing Director. “Offering an extremely attractive price point, Viva will be well specified and come in a range of trims and equipment levels, which will hold great appeal in this rapidly growing sector.”


“Once again, next year will see Britain’s motoring public spoiled for choice when it comes to new and exciting cars hitting the market,” said Jim Holder, What Car? Editor. “The Reader Award has a special prestige for manufacturers, purely because it is voted for by their paying public. To get this particular prize is a very good indication that the car you’re toiling over is getting the right reaction from consumers.”


The Viva will be the latest edition to Vauxhall’s small-car range, joining the fashionable A-sector ADAM and the popular Corsa supermini.
