Vehicle Description

Ten Second Review

The Vauxhall Vivaro is back; bigger and better finished than ever before. There's a choice of two lengths and two roof heights for the panel vans. The interiors are a good deal more comfortable and practical and the engines comprise either a 1.6 turbodiesel or a 1.6 twin turbodiesel, both powerplants available with two different power outputs.

Background

Nobody could accuse Vauxhall of rushing the second generation Vivaro into production. Some thirteen years after the original appeared, we now have a successor. It's not as if Vauxhall had its hand forced by dwindling sales either, with the Vivaro and its sister vehicle, the Renault Trafic, commanding a ten per cent market share Europe-wide. Almost a million units were sold during that period, with Vauxhall continually tweaking the formula according to customer demands. In that period it learned a lot about how to build a mid-sized panel van.

The results of all that experience have been poured into this latest Vivaro. The playing field has changed too in the interim, and the Vauxhall now has to face down increased competition from some smart medium sector rivals such as the Volkswagen Transporter, the Mercedes Vito and the Ford Transit Custom. Even with those contenders in its path, you wouldn't bet against the Vivaro reprising its previous success.

Driving Experience

The engines that power the Vivaro are both 1.6-litre turbodiesel units, but aside from that, they deliver very different results. Most buyers will probably opt for the 1.6-litre CDTi unit, available in either 89 or 113bhp power outputs. In order to match the sort of power outputs Mercedes can deliver with the Vito, Vauxhall has also introduced the 1.6-litre BiTurbo CDTi engine, available in 119 or 138bhp guises. Powered by two turbochargers working together, this engine combines excellent performance with decent fuel economy. From just 1,500rpm, the 119bhp BiTurbo generates an impressive maximum torque of 320Nm, while the 138bhp variant delivers 340Nm. From just 1,500rpm, the 119bhp BiTurbo generates 320Nm torque, while the 138bhp variant delivers 340Nm, so there's plenty of muscle even if you're fully loaded.

The driving position, though not as lofty as in some models nevertheless affords a decent view up the road. You get big door mirrors to help with manoeuvring and tried and tested transmissions.

Design and Build

The Vivaro looks anything but another anonymous panel van. There's a bluff Vauxhall front end, with plenty of chrome and huge headlight pods set in high-gloss black mouldings. The LED daytime running lights come with signature Vauxhall wing graphic design. Move round to the side and you'll spot the crisp blade feature flowing from under the side mirrors back to the rear wheel-arches in the same style found on the Insignia family and Astra GTC models.

The new Vivaro colour palette comprises eleven standard colours, with five solid and six two-coat metallic finishes. The cabin is much improved as well, with better refinement, a focus on utility, plus darker and more durable materials used throughout. Comfort has been improved as well, with seats that rake back and more adjustability for the steering column. There are also some neat touches like a detachable clipboard and a place to hide your laptop.

Market and Model

Prices range in the £18,000 to £22,000 bracket. Depending on how the new Vivaro is to be used - as a robust van or a comfortable large-capacity combi - customers can choose between two body design trim levels. The Vivaro variant (first trim level) is strong and practical with the front bumper, grille, side mirror housings and the vertical rear mouldings presented in a durable, black textured plastic material. Features i8nclude a driver's airbag, a digital radio with Bluetooth and USB connectivity and ESP.

For the Sportive trim level, all body elements including the front bumper, side mouldings, vertical rear bumper corners and the side mirrors are painted in the vehicle's body colour and the grille has chrome accents. There is an optional Keyless Open & Start system means you can carry gear to the van without the need to fumble around for keys. These simple things can make a big difference to everyday utility. For example, if you're wearing gloves, you won't need to remove them to search your pockets for the keys to get things in and out of the van.

Practicalities & Costs

The Vivaro panel van is offered in two lengths. The standard L1 configuration measures 4,998mm from stem to stern, with the L2 breaking the tape at 5,398mm. There are also two roof heights to choose from. Compared to its predecessor, you get an extra 100mm interior load length, and cargo capacity ranges between 5.2 and 8.6 cubic metres. Vauxhall has also been smart about accommodating even longer loads too, with a flap that extends through the bulkhead and below the front seats to allow up to 2.95m long items. Need even more length? Then simply open a secondary flap that extends into the front footwell, allowing up to 3.2m long items to be taken on board.

Of course, you could always just opt for the longer L2 model with its cavernous 4.15m load length. Although you do get more space inside the Vivaro, Vauxhall have made sure that those looking to upgrade from the old model to the new can still fit their existing racking systems into the later version. If you're running a fleet of old and new vans, this transferability means real savings. As indeed does the fuel economy of the latest model. Vauxhall reckons the entry-level vans will achieve up to 49.5mpg, confidently predicting this Vivaro will deliver best in class economy. There's also an eco button to help you get the most from a gallon of derv.

Summary

It's often the case that a manufacturer with a successful model on its books succumbs to paralysis; afraid in many ways to kill a goose that lays golden eggs. The Vivaro has been just such a model for Vauxhall and while the company has taken a very long time to launch a replacement, the changes to the second generation design are well-judged and ought to continue the Vivaro's strong sales.

Is there really that much to choose between panel vans? After all they're merely boxes of fresh air on wheels. Perhaps the answer to that is that when it comes to operating a fleet, even small differences rapidly add up and Vauxhall's claim that the Vivaro delivers the best fuel economy in its class has to be taken seriously. With a broad and versatile range, clean and powerful engines, distinctive styling and a more comfortable interior, it's hard to see how this one can fail to score.

Very good. Lots of thought gone into making details such as the fold down seat etc in cab. Shame the lights in the back are still rubbish, will have to buy and fit some aftermarket LED lights if I want to be able to find anything in the dark.

Having had previously a ten year old large van which was slow and in need of an update, to drive the Vivaro is like driving a performance car, really pleased so far with every thing about the van, in particular build quality and performance. I can't fault Vanarama really pleased with the service they provide.

It could do with an arm rest that doesn't gather dirt and dust as much, some more storage on the dash and slightly bigger buttons on the radio as I have to really push them to get them to work. The door handles on the outside are quite stiff and sticky, but a very nice cab and nice to drive.

This to me is the most practical and economical van of this range on the market. Really happy with the mpg I am getting and its so comfortable to drive. Mostly have 'eco mode' switched on for driving around town, but turn it off and the van has a decent bit of power when needed.

Transit Custom Limited beats this in every department EXCEPT mpg. 30-32mpg as opposed to 38mpg ave. Everything seems cheaper on this and it has annoying alarms going off for different things and doors that don't unlock unless you press button several times. Stop/start doesn't like fast clutch/gear movements. You end up stopped at traffic lights for a few seconds while trying to encourage the engine to start. Radio changes in tone randomly now and then so it's booked in at the garage. Not had it long enough to comment about reliability. But I hired this for the mpg and it's doing well with that.

Not being a petrol head I'm easily pleased, but I'm impressed so far. MPG seams good, drives well, I have it on Eco all the time and use cruise control on duel carriage ways. I have the platinum silver colour and it looks great. A few of the other builders and roofers have van envy. So far so good.

The Vivaro is a very good van and a pleasure to use. My van has a limiter on it which beeps over 70mph, it is being addressed as we speak but I would recommend checking that none of the rest have it as I can imagine having a lot of call backs if this is the case.

With colour coded bumpers and mirrors our business now has a great looking van and an essential tool in our marketing plan.

Very smooth, refined drive, amazing engine. I'm getting 40mpg so far and have only covered 500 miles, so expect this will improve further. Sat Nav, carpet mats, passenger airbags and alloys would be nice for this level of modern van - shame it hasn't got these. Good service from Vanarama, very happy, good ply lining. The Vivaro is the best value mid size van in the market place in my opinion. The BiTurbo engine is incredible.

I should have leased this van earlier. It has had a positive direct impact on the business, both in profit and image! I was initially concerned that the 1.6 would be underpowered but has surprisingly more poke than our old Vivaro. It handles the weight we have to deal with too. Imagine a cut up double garage door on the side rack with a van full of tools and supplies! I would also like to recommend Vanarama for the transaction. It went as smooth as can be.

The L2 Vivaro stood out from the crowd due to the extra load space through the bulk head. With good looks, practicality and great performance for the amount of load we carry, it really is a great van to own. The styling is spot on, and the Sportive model has all the modern day equipment as standard. Once ply-lined and racked out, it carries all the essentials to run a carpentry business, as well as the capability to carry materials, including 8x4 sheets with ease. The colour options on the Sportive really make the van stand out on the road, and it's really like driving a modern family car rather than a van. Alloys as standard, like on the old model, would have been nice. For the price, you can't really go wrong. So far, it's been a pleasure to own.

I've had this van for about a month now and it's easily the most comfortable and easy to drive van I've driven so far. The bluetooth connectivity and the DAB radio are major perks and the cargo/tool space is spacious and easy to use and customize. Motorways are less tiring with cruise control and overall it's built for comfort. A big thumbs up from me.

I had a VW transporter before but fancied a change. After looking at all the vans available, I chose the Vivaro for looks and I liked the fact I could get a 3M pipe inside with the neat little lift up flap under the passenger seat.

I’ve only had the van for 3 months, so hard to tell if it is reliable or not. Downsides are 1. Brakes are a bit spongy, 2. MPG isn't that great. 3. Inside the cab isn't really well thought out. On the plus side 1. Very practical. 2. Ride quality is good. 3. Like creature comforts. 4. Good looking van. Overall I am very pleased with it so far.

I love it. I am a kitchen and bathroom installer and I need to carry a lot of kit. I seem to have space to spare with this long wheelbase layout! I've only had it a couple of weeks but it has made a huge difference to my working day. Although I have been an installer for 17 years it makes me feel much more professional. I like the easy driving style, it's just like driving a good car really. Air con, electric everything, parking sensors, cruise control...what else could you want in a VAN! I'm getting over 40mpg driving locally, according to the comprehensive trip computer, so absolutely no complaints there. Very nimble even when fully loaded - brilliant! Only downsides are the horrible digital speedometer and lack of temperature and oil pressure gauges. Radio graphics are also disappointingly basic. Can't imagine that the flimsy plastic fuel cap cover will last long either and I don't think it was a clever idea to make me open the passengers door every time I need to fill up with diesel. And it would be better if you could turn off the Autostop feature PERMANENTLY instead of having to disable it every time you start the vehicle. But overall it was a superb choice and I look forward to driving to my jobs now!

I'm now two weeks in. Really happy with the van overall and the service provided by the guys at Vanarama. Really quick turnaround from initial placing of my order, to delivery! I am an electrical contractor and my vans are key to my business so having smart, reliable vehicles capable of carrying all the equipment used on a day to day basis is very important. This Vivaro ticks all the boxes. Very practical in terms of load carrying in the back and storage in the cab. Loads of cubby-holes. It's a very nice spec with everything I need. Bluetooth allows me to answer the phone while on the move, cruise control for the longer journeys. The cab feels more like a nice car than a van! The 1.6 BiTurbo engine is very impressive. Smooth and very quiet. Plenty of power even when loaded - shows up the equivalent Ford model! No problems climbing and motorways are a breeze. MPG is pretty good when driven fairly conservatively, but be warned, it is easy to get carried away where the engine pulls so nicely! Overall, the package is excellent and I would definitely have another based on my experience so far!

The van looks fantastic especially in Black. It shouts professionalism when you turn up at a client’s property. I am a builder specialising in extensions and refurbs, new kitchens and bathrooms all top end quality homes. I was concerned that a 1.6 was not going to have enough power despite the horsepower figures. I was wrong it has muscle and refinement is smooth and so quiet in the cab, it’s like being in a modern car. I have had the van for about 6 months now and it’s a real pleasure to own and drive. The load through hatch is great and saves leaving the rear door open for gear to get wet. We drive locally every day about 50 miles and a few times per month to London, which is about 300 miles there and back. It’s a dream and eats the miles. The fuel consumption really needs to be seen to be believed it uses so little even at speed and with a load on. The built in Bluetooth system to the stereo is great and my iPhone connects straight away and the handsfree clarity is great, never had anyone say I sound like I’m underwater etc. Just a note to say that the headlights are very good the daylight running lights look good but at night the main headlights really do work well. The centre seat is folded down and I use it as my desk, iPad on it and clipboard up it makes it so easy not to forget materials etc. as I just write it down and it’s in my face all the time which is great if you’re busy and forgetful. A great van. Only problem I have had is the service due light coming on prematurely, but my local Vauxhall swapped the binnacle over and hey presto all is well. PS the cruise control is a real nice feature when on the motorway. GET ONE YOU WILL LOVE IT!!

I use my van for my heating and plumbing business and have had the van for a month now. The van is the lwb version as I needed to get full lengths of pipe and my ladders inside so no roof rack. The van is averaging 39 mpg considering the van is always full that is very good. Would recommend van to anybody as well as the service from Vanarama first class.

After having larger vans in the past, I went for something a little bit smaller as I'd taken on a bit more work where I needed to access underground car parks and this van does the job due to the height of the vehicle. The long wheel base is perfect for storing tools and materials, it drives like a dream and is also very reliable.

We use our van for driving to work and back, we have had the van approx. 8 weeks, very comfortable and drives great compared to our old Vivaro although we have one problem the space between the gear stick and the passenger seat is smaller and also if you put anything on the passenger seat it slips off and goes between the seats. Would like it to have sat nav.

This van is used for our fire protection engineer to attend sites all over the UK. It is large enough to transport the tools and consumables we need to carry out our works efficiently. In the 4 weeks we have had the van we have not experienced any problems. We have found it to be comfortable and economical with fuel consumption. Our engineer finds the Vivaro to be comfortable to drive which helps keep him happier on the road. At this stage we do not have anything negative to review and overall are extremely pleased with our choice.

Really nice van. Drives & handles like a car. I was a bit dubious of how well the 1.6 diesel would do, but the BIturbo 120 makes my old VW T5 2.5 TDI seem like a dinosaur. The only downside is that the sat nav and alloys are extras, even on the Sportive, yet come as standard on the Renault Traffic version. Other than that, a lovely van all round.

This van is perfect for the job I have for it. Running costs are good and great comfort is all there with the Vauxhall Vivaro super van.

I have only had the van for a week but am very impressed so far. The styling is great and the extras in the Sportive add to its appeal. It looks like I should get 600 miles to a tank of fuel which is significantly better than my previous Vivaro.

Very nice van. Looks good and feels solid. Very quiet inside when driving. I like the power and fuel economy too. I also like the level of features as standard.

I have only had the van for a few hours, but up to now I am very pleased. The van looks amazing. The cab is really stylish and seating is very comfortable.The van drives very well and is very responsive. As for reliability and running costs, it is too early for me to tell.

Too early to judge reliability, but this van is a real pleasure to drive. Last van was an 07 plate and the gulf in comfort and quality between the two is massive. The front cab looks and feels like a top quality car. I'm a bit gutted to have to install the seat covers. The rest of the van looks good too. I took it on the motorway and the engine performance was great. Really pleased.

Good all rounder, that drives like a car. It's a little under powered for steep hills and overtaking when in ECO and a little more space in the cab for a 3rd person would be better. The seat belt could do with being a little longer for larger people.

I had previously owned a Vivaro, so I was expecting the same or better and I got much better. Drives like a good quality car and everything is at hand for the driver. Only had it one day so I cannot give it 5 stars on all points, as a lot of them will take time to determine the ratings. But over all, a fabulous looking van with everything I need to make my business and working day a pleasure. Would certainly recommend one to others.

Customer Questions

Can you get the vans sign written?

Hello, thanks for your question. Yes you can get your new van sign written. Having your van professionally sign written is one of the most powerful and cost –effective ways to promote your business. We recommend using a professional to sign write your van and that you use the vinyl type, as this is easier to remove at the end of the contract. It’s advised you remove the sign writing at the end of the lease to avoid any additional removal costs.

Would it be possible to have a reversing camera fitted to this van?

Hello, thanks for your question. Yes, this model has an additional option of a rear view camera .

What is the mileage allowance on this deal? Is this deal a contract hire? And does the vehicle have to be handed back at the end of the contract?

Hello, thanks for your question. This deal is a finance lease covering 8k per annum. If you would like to change the quote to a contract hire please get in touch with one of our account managers who will tailor you a quote.

Is there an option for extra locks to be fitted before delivery of the van and if so how much extra would it be?

Thanks for getting in touch. Extra locks often referred to as dead locks or Slam locks can be fitted before delivery. We can have them installed prior to your delivery and the cost can be built into your lease agreement or paid as a one off payment. Alternatively once you have taken delivery of the vehicle you can have them fitted yourself. The cost can vary with the manufacturer of the vehicle, If you have them fitted yourself it’s advisable to contact the lease company to advise them that they have been fitted to the vehicle.

Does this model come ply lined and is there an option for the van to come with the factory fitted sat nav?

Hi Joel, this van will be ply lined for you before delivery. With regards to the sat nav, Vauxhall offer an option called Navi 50 which we could add to the vehicle when it is being built.

Is it possible to remove the bulkhead from this vehicle?

Hi Mark, thanks for getting in touch. The full steel bulk head on the Vauxhall Vivaro L2 Diesel 2900 BiTurbo 125PS ecoflex Sportive H1 Van is a standard part of the specification of the vehicle and therefore cannot be removed. If you would like to discuss this in further detail, or look at any alternative options for you, please feel free to contact one of our specialists direct on 01442 838195. Kind regards, Mike Daly.

What would be the insurance class for the insurance, or does lease hire come with insurance?

Hi Darren, Insurance is not included in the lease, but we can provide you the full model details and value for you to get a quote on insurance prior to making a decision.

What is the difference between lease hire and lease purchase? How long are you tied in to a contract for? Thanks

The difference between lease hire (Contract Hire) and Lease Purchase is that Contract Hire gives you use of a van for a fixed period of time and can include fixed cost maintenance, you then had it back at the end. Lease Purchase gives you the option to own the vehicle at the end by means of paying a final payment. With Contract Hire the payments can be offset against taxable profits, therefore reducing the tax the business pays. With Lease Purchase the vehicle is classed as an asset therefore the depreciation of the vehicle can be written off against taxable profits. On a Contract Hire agreement the payments are subject to VAT and if the business is VAT registered this can be claimed back on a monthly basis. On Lease Purchase the VAT is paid as part of the deposit and can be claimed back in one go at the beginning of the agreement. All of the agreements we can do are either 2 years, 3 years, 4 years or 5 years.

How many miles per gallon can I get from this van?

The Vauxhall Vivaro returns between 35.8 to 42.7 mpg, depending on the model.

Do I get breakdown recovery?

Yes - the Vauxhall Vivaro comes with 12 months of AA recovery.

What are the service intervals for this van?

The service intervals for the Vauxhall Vivaro are two years or 25,000 miles.

Rentals/Payments are subject to VAT. Business customers only. Photos and videos are for illustration purposes only. Deposit can mean initial payment or initial rental depending on the contract type. Subject to credit agreement. Terms and conditions apply.
