  • Vauxhall Vivaro - runner up in the 2020 Parkers Medium Van of the Year Award

    Vauxhall Vivaro review (2020)

    Somewhat unusually, this all-new, third-generation Vauxhall Vivaro medium van – known within Vauxhall as the Vivaro C – arrived just five years after the launch of the previous model, the Vivaro B. The explanation for this short lifecycle is simple: Vauxhall the brand has changed hands, and is now...

    Vauxhall Vivaro review (2014-2019)

    Flying the Union Flag was an important part of the brand message when this second-generation Vauxhall Vivaro medium van arrived in 2014. Why? Well, up to 40% of the Vivaro’s components are sourced from Britain, many within 100 miles of the Luton factory. Over the expected lifecycle of the van,...

    Vauxhall Corsavan review (2014-2018)

    The Vauxhall Corsavan has been a mainstay in the Vauxhall LCV line-up for 20 years, and is the second longest-serving Vauxhall van behind the Vauxhall Combo. Now into its fourth generation, the Vauxhall Corsavan is available in just one load variant (0.92 cubic metres), two trim levels (base and...

  • Vauxhall Combo full review on Parkers Vans - exterior

    Vauxhall Combo review (2012-2018)

    The previous generation Vauxhall Combo was an extremely popular van that sold to private customers and fleets in their thousands. With such pedigree the new Combo needed to be an impressive product, and so Vauxhall had a challenge on its hands. Teaming up with Fiat to effectively rebadge the Doblo...

  • Vauxhall Corsa review on Parkers Vans - front

    Vauxhall Corsavan review (2007-14)

    Car-derived vans are a fun breed. They are small, easy to park and return good average fuel economy. Based on the regular Corsa car, the Corsavan is nimble and easy to manoeuvre in tight spaces, making it ideal for small businesses working in and around small towns and city centres. If you only...

  • Vauxhall Astra review on Parkers Vans - front

    Vauxhall Astra review (2006-2012)

    The Astra van is an Astra estate car minus rear seats and windows, albeit with extensively re-engineering to cope with commercial work. Load capacity is improved over the previous model, but the Astra van's primary virtues are its good looks, car-like cabin and excellent road manners. The Astra is...

  • Vauxhall Corsa review on Parkers Vans - front exterior

    Vauxhall Corsavan review (2001-2006)

    The Vauxhall Corsavan is one of the range of car-based small commercial vehicles on offer including the Ford Fiestavan, Peugeot 206 van and Renault Cliovan which are beloved of couriers.

  • Vauxhall Vivaro review on Parkers Vans - front

    Vauxhall Vivaro review (2001-2014)

    The Vivaro slots in just below the Movano in the Vauxhall van line-up and is the firm's answer to the shorter and lower versions of the Ford Transit. Like Transit, the most popular version is a panel van - available in short or long wheelbase forms. But other bodystyles are on offer including a...

  • Vauxhall Combo review on Parkers Vans - exterior

    Vauxhall Combo review (2001-2011)

    The original Vauxhall Combo appeared back in 1997 and was based on the Vauxhall Corsa platform. It lagged far behind its rivals the Citroen Berlingo, Peugeot Partner and Renault Kangoo, however, which were all designed from the word go as vans rather than cars. So in 2001, the purpose-built design...

  • Vauxhall Movano review on Parkers Vans - exterior and load access

    Vauxhall Movano review (1999-2003)

    Vauxhall burst back on to the 3.5-tonne van sector in 1998 with the Movano, after an absence in this market of some years. The Movano was a re-badged Renault Master and shared both its platform and engines – and it is none the worse for that, as the Renault boasted a fine set of diesel...

  • Vauxhall Astra review on Parkers Vans - on the road

    Vauxhall Astra review (1998-2006)

    The Vauxhall Astra van is essentially a van for people who need a commercial vehicle but don’t really want to drive one. It is exactly what it says on the tin – a Vauxhall Astra estate that has had the rear seats removed and the side windows blanked out to make a cargo area. The Astravan was based...
