Company Car and Van
In the flesh, as vans go, it’s actually a good looker, with a bold front grille and large headlights giving the front an aggressive look while the sensibly located rear light clusters high up on the left and right had sides of the van, will help prevent you from costly damage if you happen to bump your Vivaro into something. The user-friendly cabin now feels more upmarket and car-like. Driver and front seat passengers get more leg room, as the cab is 116 mm longer than before.” (April 2016)
“With two wheelbases & two roof heights, plus a double cab crew van & a platform cab allowing customers to make a choice of modifications, the Vivaro is a really straightforward proposition.”
“The user friendly cabin now feels more upmarket & car-like. Driver & front seat passengers get more leg room, as the cab is 116 mm longer than before.”
“Van drivers love their cubby holes & the Vivaro doesn’t disappoint with several deep storage bins in the doors as well as additional dash-top areas for keeping pens, oddments & receipts out of harm’s way.”
“A van customer wants the volume in the back of their van & here the Vivaro scores highly as well. For starters, because the width & height dimensions remain unaltered from the previous Vivaro, there is more than a chance that customers’ existing racking can be transferred fairly easily into the new model, which could save customers a lot of money.”
“Getting into the load area is easy & is accomplished via twin rear doors. There’s also an additional sliding door at the side. There’s also a full steel bulkhead separating the cargo area from the cab, which keeps both the load at bay & the cab reasonably quiet.”
"With a generous specification, improved fuel consumption, lower emissions and a larger load area, new Vivaro looks set to rapidly build upon the success of the previous model."
"The 120hp model is the most impressive of the four [New Vivaro vans], delivering up to 49.9mpg and just 155g/km of CO2… Better still, it will be priced at £255 less than the previous van, despite the fact that all Vivaro models have a higher specification including standard ESP."
"The new BiTurbo engines are refined and punchy, and the 120HP version driven here feels more powerful than it says on paper, and given the almost class-leading efficiency it's very effective. It should certainly be the engine of choice."
"The ride is comfortable without compromising body control.. The new Vivaro impresses in many ways."
“[New Vivaro] has just hit the streets, offering new looks, enhanced practicality, better driveability and lower fuel consumption.”
“Vauxhall has done a fine job standing up to the challenge of the new Ford Transit Custom. If this van doesn’t keep the blue oval at bay, then nothing will.”
“Inside,just about everything has been altered for the better”
“The old Vivaro was pretty car-like to drive, but this new model takes things to a new level”
“.. the cabin now has an upmarket car-like feel that’s a match for anything in the class.”
“From a driving point-of-view the Vivaro’s ride comfort and refinement stand out most. It’s an excellent cruiser”
“As well as setting a very high standard for engine refinement, the Vivaro serves up a smooth ride that copes with bumpy British tarmac without crashing or sending shudders through its body.”
“Both brakes and steering inspire confidence with their predictable responses”
“Special mention must go to the Vivaro’s driving position, which offers a wide range of adjustment both from the seat and the steering column that adjusts for rake and reach.”
“The Vivaro displays the solid build quality you’d expect from a panel van but there are some nice design touches that liven-up the look of the cab too.”
Honest John Vans
“It's now far more refined than before thanks to the excellent 1.6-litre diesel and good to drive with a high quality ride whether empty or laden”.
“The new UK-built Vauxhall Vivaro is a huge step forward ….. and provides an unprecedented level of user-friendly interior functionality for operators that need their vehicle to double-up as a mobile workspace…..Class-leading refinement and excellent new engines add to the innovative ideas to offer an efficient and cost-effective all-rounder.”
