Vauxhall Viva Hatchback (2015 - )

The Viva isn’t quite the best car in its class, but the mix of smart looks, fine standard equipment and good-value pricing makes a very compelling case for the car. If you’re in the market for a city car, it’s certainly worth a look. But, before you sign up, do take a test drive to make sure you can live with the ride, and that the engine is strong enough for your daily duties.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Inside, the Viva isn’t quite as glamorous as it is outside; but, while the plastics across the dash and in the door trims do have a hard feel to them, they’re no worse than what you’ll find in similarly priced rivals such as the Hyundai i10 and Skoda Citigo. Function, rather than form, is the order of the day, but that’s no bad thing, as the designers have been careful to keep the amount of switchgear to a minimum. So, the cabin has a nice, clean look and feel to it, and it’s easy to find your way around. The view out is good, too, and our only slight disappointment is that the steering wheel comes only with reach (and not rake-) adjustment, but again, that’s a criticism you can level at most of the Viva’s rivals.
