The Vauxhall Viva is back! Returning to the UK’s roads for the first time in decades, this familiar name now features on an unfamiliar model: a compact and affordable city car with agile performance and a surprising amount of room.
The Viva has strong, clean lines and a relatively upright design that maximises the interior space, with five doors ensuring easy access to the rear seats for all passengers.
There are two trim levels to choose from, and all feature front fog lights with a cornering function. Top-of-the-range SL models add alloy wheels for added kerb appeal, and there are ten colour options to help you express your personality too.
The Viva’s interior contains space for four adults or two adults and three youngsters, and boasts a 206-litre boot that’s perfectly proportioned for a weekly shop or a couple of small suitcases. The 60/40 split-folding rear seats mean you can expand the boot when life calls for it, too.
The dashboard is easy to use and navigate, with chunky buttons and simple rotary dials. SL versions include climate control, Bluetooth connectivity so you can connect wirelessly to your smartphone, and a leather-covered steering wheel.
There’s no complicated engine range to confuse in the Viva – every version comes powered by a three-cylinder, 1.0-litre petrol engine. It boasts 74bhp and emits just 104g/km of CO2, while achieving just 62.8mpg on the combined cycle. If you want to drop the emissions even further, opt for the ecoFLEX package that has no impact on performance and reduces emissions to 99g/km.
The handling is safe, predictable and light, making it ideal for threading through fast-flowing city traffic and weaving into tight gaps. You can choose from a five-speed manual gearbox or Vauxhall’s Easytronic system.
It may be a small car, but the Viva comes with a lot of big-car safety features, including lane-keeping assist, six airbags, a tyre pressure monitoring system and stability control. Cruise control also comes as standard and will help make long journeys less tiring by allowing you to set a speed and stick to it, without needing to keep your foot on the accelerator.
Air conditioning is optional on SE models, while a touchscreen system with a digital radio is optional across the range. You can also add an electric sunroof to flood the cabin with light or add ventilation on warmer days.
