Vauxhall Vivaro - 27,537 registered

Easy to drive and hugely capable, the British-built Vivaro is a huge step up over its predecessor, with big improvements in refinement and fuel economy. Vauxhall's 1.6-litre diesel engine may be smaller than the 2.0-litre unit found in the old van but it has as much power and torque.

The 1.6 unit can also be specified with twin-turbos with 120PS or 140PS, with the former returning 47.9mpg. The Vivaro can also carry up to three Euro pallets, while the optional FlexCargo bulkhead lets it accommodate lengths of up to 4150mm, which makes it perfect for securely carrying pipes and ladders.
