Review Summary
The Vauxhall Viva is cheap to buy and run, but it struggles out of town.

Review Summary
We’re not quite sure we can see 45-50 year olds rushing out to buy this, but Vauxhall seems to think they will. Appealing to newly qualified drivers looking for their first car on the other hand? Yes, we can definitely see the appeal.

Parkers
Review Summary
The Vauxhall Viva is at its best when manoeuvring around tight city streets thanks to its compact dimensions and small turning circle. It’s simple to park too and makes easy work of any U-turns you may need to perform should you get lost.

Review Summary
The focus on ease of use will please many, while low running costs are easily achievable. There's nothing basic about the level of standard kit.

Review Summary
Vauxhall has delivered the sort of city car that sensible customers are surely hoping for. It’s also competitively priced and acceptably cheap to run.

Review Summary
If all you want is basic, no-frills transport at the lowest possible cost, the Viva should be on your list to try. Its interior is nicer than any other you’ll find at this price point; it’s comfortable, too, and for the most part, enjoyable to drive.

Review Summary
The Vauxhall Viva revives a name from the firm's past, but is it worth considering over a Hyundai i10?

Review Summary
The Vauxhall Viva is a competitive small car, but there are rivals that offer better value for money and more interior space.
