Arriving in showrooms this summer is the new Vauxhall Viva (no – not that Viva). Despite sharing its name with the much loved 60’s classic the new Viva is an entirely different car to its namesake.
The Viva will be replacing the outgoing Vauxhall Agila as Vauxhall’s small city car as the company hope to compete with rivals from other brands such as Volkswagen and Hyundai.
Starting at £7,995 the Viva SE base model is already considerably cheaper than its rivals. When compared to the base model Volkswagen Up and the Hyundai i10 the Viva shows its excellent value in both price and specification with savings up to £1,140 available.
Standard equipment on the SE model includes a tyre pressure monitoring system, city mode steering lane departure warning, daytime running lights, 15” structured wheels, cruise control with speed limited and front fog lights, an impressive amount of spec for a base model. For an extra £175 the SE ecoFLEX is available with air conditioning and an extended rear spoiler.
For those wanting more there will also be the Viva SL spec which will include all the features of the SE version and more. Electronic climate control, USB, Bluetooth, alloy wheels, and tinted rear windows improve upon the already generous spec. At just £9,495 the Viva continues to show excellent value for money.
Powering the new Viva will be a 1.0i 75PS petrol engine capable of achieving 62.8MPG with emissions of 104g/km keeping running costs low. In addition to this 1.0i 75PS engine is the ecoFLEX version which will achieve 65.7MPG with emissions of 99g/km.
The new Vauxhall Viva will be available in the summer although no date has been confirmed. You can view and order your new Viva at either of our Vauxhall dealerships. View the range here.
