The all-new Vauxhall VIVA on the road

Vauxhall’s all-new, five-door, entry-level model VIVA will make its world-premiere at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show (5-15 March).

 

Arriving this summer, the VIVA will be the latest addition to Vauxhall’s small-car range, joining the fashionable ADAM and the popular Corsa supermini.

 

With a name that pays homage to Vauxhall’s original Viva, made from 1963 to 1979, the all-new VIVA shares the original’s philosophy of clean lines, durability and practicality. It is designed for modern, everyday life and, at 3.68 metres long, is practical and spacious, providing room for up to five people.

 

VIVA is the latest Vauxhall to feature Vauxhall’s new 1.0-litre three-cylinder ECOTEC engine, which previously appeared in the ADAM ROCKS AIR and the New Corsa. Its specially developed 75PS powertrain is smooth, punchy and efficient, and is mated to a slick five-speed transmission.

 

Like its stablemates ADAM and Corsa, VIVA is fully connected thanks to the IntelliLink infotainment system, which allows seamless integration of Apple iOS and Android devices.

 

“Debuting at Geneva, Vauxhall’s new entry-level model is a proper small car and will hold great appeal in this rapidly growing sector,” said Tim Tozer, Vauxhall’s Chairman and Managing Director. “On sale next year at an extremely attractive price, VIVA joins New Corsa and ADAM in a compelling small-car portfolio, giving Vauxhall an unrivalled position in the small-car market.”
