VAUXHALL VIVARO ENDS YEAR ON A HIGH WITH WHAT VAN? AWARD

Vauxhall has picked up another award to round off a highly-successful year, with the Vivaro being named as What Van? Used Van of the Year for the second year in a row.

Now in their fourth year, the prestigious What Van? awards celebrate the best of the best in the LCV sector, with all 14 winners receiving their gongs at the awards lunch this afternoon. The Brit-built Vivaro was again recognised at the awards, successfully defending its title as ‘Used Van of the Year’.

“The Vivaro has again proven itself to be the most thought-out and user-friendly medium van on the market, and that combines with its stylish appeal and best-in-class Bi-Turbo engines to create an appealing proposition,” said What Van? Editor James Dallas. “The fact that it’s British-built and supporting the UK economy is the icing on the cake of a well-thought-out light commercial vehicle proposition.”

This year has seen Vauxhall’s trophy cabinet fill considerably, with the manufacturer receiving multiple awards for models across its commercial vehicle and passenger car ranges. For its CV range, Vauxhall has been recognised by Trade Van Driver, Fleet World, and Business Van magazines, among others, in a year that has also seen Vauxhall’s Luton plant – where the Vivaro is made – receive awards for health and safety.

Steve Bryant, Vauxhall’s Head of Commercial Vehicle Brand, said: “The Vivaro is a model we are very proud of, and to build it in the UK is something that is very important to us. To see it recognised yet again is great to see, as it continues to prove itself to CV operators with its style, practicality, comfort and efficiency.”

What Van? offers light commercial vehicle buying and owning advice, and the awards are decided by its expert editorial panel comprising decades of experience in the industry.
