Second only to Ford as the UK’s biggest-selling car manufacturer, Vauxhall is renowned for its excellent build quality, practicality, reliability and value for money – and of course, driving experience. So it should come as no surprise that the brand behind the Corsa, the Astra and the Cavalier also makes a range of vans which are efficient, well engineered, functional and flexible.
To start the range off, there's a van version of the Corsa, which can carry a payload of up to 571kg. Powered by either a 1.2-litre petrol engine delivering 69bhp or a 1.3-litre diesel delivering up to 94bhp, it's dynamic to drive, and all engines have stop-start technology to increase efficiency. The cabin is well-constructed, with easy-to-use controls; Sportive trim adds a leather steering wheel and sports seats.
Next up is the Vauxhall Combo, an excellent, practical compact van available in two lengths and with a payload capacity of up to 1,020kg. A sliding side door provides easy access to the load bay, and the modern, spacious cabin provides good visibility and plenty of storage. On the road, it's smooth and fun, with strong, frugal engines, a comfortable ride and reassuring grip and handling. Equipment and safety kit are plentiful too.
The Vauxhall Vivaro mid-size van can carry a payload of up to 1,200kg, and a sliding side door makes it easy to get all that cargo in and out. Peppy, efficient diesel engines, and a cabin with comfortable seats, plentiful storage and a DAB radio with Bluetooth and USB connectivity make it a pleasure on long journeys. A new version goes on sale in summer 2019, which should mean even better deals on used Vivaros.
The mighty Vauxhall Movano has an impressive 17 cubic metre load volume, offering space for five euro pallets. It's available in four lengths, and all but the shortest version have sliding side doors that open 1.27 metres wide, making loading easy. The 2.3-litre turbodiesel engines deliver up to 128bhp and 236lb ft of torque, and the Movano is smooth, dynamic and comfortable on the road.
