Why is the 2014 Vauxhall Vivaro rated lower than the 2014 Renault Trafic?

Why is the 2014 Renault Trafic rated 4 out of 5 stars while the 2014 Vauxhall Vivaro is only rated 3 stars when it's basically the same van apart from the front panels? Unless there are other changes that I am missing.

The Renault Trafic was heavily revised in 2019 with a redesigned cabin and all-new 2.0 dCi engines (which gives it the extra star). In comparison, the Vivaro was replaced and the older model now feels a step or two behind the latest Trafic.
