Vauxhall fundamentally changed the way we bought panel vans in the UK. When the Vivaro was first launched in 2001, the van market was a carve up. If you wanted inexpensive you bought a Transit. If you wanted to spend more, you went for a Volkswagen or a Mercedes. These days, things are very different and the Vivaro has been a key player in delivering customers a real alternative and in forcing its rivals to up their respective games. Here's what to look for when shopping for a used example.
The Vauxhall Vivaro is a perfect example of a van that didn't set out to change the world, but in doing the simple things right managed to subtly change the way we bought commercial vehicles. It established Vauxhall as a credible LCV manufacturer and while that may have been achieved off the back of Renault's design excellence, it nevertheless paved the way for a subsequent range of big-selling Vauxhall vans. The first generation Vivaro range stuck around for 13 years, so the preferable post-2010 models we'd suggest you look at have a decade of refining and fettling behind them. Look at a few examples and try to find one that's been serviced on the button and hasn't had too hard a life. Manage that and you shouldn't go too far wrong.
