Fuel economy

Petrol engines 45.6 mpg

Vauxhall Viva running costs are very good, the 1-litre petrol engine offers an official combined figure of 62.8mpg and CO2 emissions of 104g/km.

If you opt for the SE ecoFLEX model, these figures slightly improve up to 65.7mpg and down to 99g/km of CO2.

Insurance bands mirror many in the segment with the Viva falling into either group 3 or 4 depending on kit like air-con inside your car

Vauxhall Viva emissions are good, the 1-litre petrol engine emits 104g/km of CO2. Opt for the ecoFLEX version and this figure falls to 99g/km which crucially for car buyers, at the time of writing means nothing to pay in car tax.

Vauxhall Viva reliability should prove very good with the sole engine already used elsewhere in the car maker’s range. We rarely hear of Vauxhall cars being recalled either and can see no reason why the new Viva will not continue this trend. Interior quality is good too and should prove durable for everyday life over your years of ownership.
