Vauxhall Vivaro - best medium panel vans

A new Vivaro is on the way using all-new tech from the PSA Group

Until recently, the Vauxhall Vivaro has shared its technology with the Renault Trafic, although the big difference is that it has always been built in Luton. But the new Vivaro arriving in dealers in 2019 has more in common with the Citroen Dispatch and Peugeot Expert, as it's now a product of the company's ownership by the PSA Group.

One thing that hasn't changed is where it's made. Yes, the Vivaro can continue to wear a 'Made in Britain' badge on its rear doors because while it's all change mechanically, it's still built in the same factory in Luton.

The Vivaro comes in three lengths and has a through-loading bulkhead to help carry longer items. Up front, the three-seat layout is a little on the tight side, but the arrangement does offer a bit of versatility if you need it. There's good storage, while the van is comfortable on the move.

Power comes from a range of diesel engines, while Vauxhall is planning to introduce a full-electric Vivaro EV at a later date.
