Vauxhall adds to 2016 award haul with van range

The Brit-built Vivaro was named as Trader’s choice at Trade Van Driver magazine’s annual awards.

Luton – Vauxhall has been honoured in two categories at Trade Van Driver magazine’s annual awards. The Brit-built Vivaro was named as Trader’s choice, while Vauxhall also picked up the award for Best Trade Van Range, acknowledging the strength of its entire commercial vehicle offering.
Judged by an expert panel of journalists, as well as a carefully selected panel of readers, the Trade Van Driver Awards give recognition to manufacturers, firms and people who offer the very best to retail van buyers. Vauxhall’s commercial vehicle range has continued to grow in recent years, with each van offering variants that accommodate all kinds of operator needs. Smaller compact vans include Corsavan and Combo, while the larger Vivaro and Movano models are ideal for larger, heavier loads. A wide range of conversions are available on Vivaro and Movano vehicles, giving a level of versatility not seen across other parts of the market. It was this versatility and range of applications across the line-up that gave Vauxhall the award for Best Trade Van Range. “Small, medium and large, plus many permutations of these, the Vauxhall commercial range has transport solutions for all the professional trades,” said Trade Van Driver Magazine editor, Matthew Eisenegger. “For businesses that operate a single-brand policy Vauxhall has it all.” The Vauxhall Vivaro is the newest model in the CV range. Built in Luton, variants include panel van, doublecab, combi and platform, already making it the van of choice for thousands of operators. Named as Trader’s choice, Matthew Eisenegger said of the Vivaro: “Ever popular with the various trades, the Vivaro benefits from functional design, comfort and extreme practicality. It’s built in Britain too, which is another big plus point.” Vauxhall’s commercial vehicle range has picked up a host of awards already this year, with the Trade Van Driver accolades following quadruple wins at both the Fleet World Honours and the Business Van Awards. “This year is proving to be a very successful one for our CV range, both in terms of industry recognition and sales performance,” said Steve Bryant, Head of Commercial Vehicle Brand. “The Brit-built Vivaro is taking many of the accolades thanks to its practicality, efficiency and comfort. And it’s also great news for us to pick up awards across the whole range.”
