Vauxhall Reviews

Good: Has the qualities of the standard Corsa with tidy handling and a neat cabin, designed as a van from the outset so impressively practical for a small vehicle.
Bad: None of the engines particularly sparkle but the 1.2-litre petrol is best avoided.
Good: Improved comfort with better seats, increased payload, very well equipped as standard with DAB and electric windows, steering now adjusts for both height and reach.
Bad: 1.3 CDTi engine is still quite noisy, strong competition from the Fiesta van, a revamp rather than an all-new van.
Good: Available with Vauxhall's strong 1.7 CDTi diesel with, good to drive with neat handling.
Bad: Interior can suffer with hard daily use.
Good: Commodious yet compact van based on a stretched Corsa platform, decent to drive, one Combo van recorded 505,000 miles.
Bad: DPF failures of 1.3 MultiJet diesels have become legendary.
Good: Essentially a rebadged Fiat Doblo Cargo, good value for money, economical CDTi diesel engines, petrol version also available.
Bad: Smaller diesels are noisy at motorway speeds.
Good: Practical small van with one-tonne payload, will carry items up to 3440mm in length, can seat up to three in the front.
Bad: Most of the smart tech costs extra, no high roof option, petrol engines won't arrive until late 2019.
Good: Available as a five or seven-seater, three Isofix points in the back, twin-sliding doors, 597 litres of boot space minimum
Bad: Not particularly refined, engine has to be worked hard to get performance, £19,610 OTR
Good: Vauxhall version of the Renault Trafic, reliable and well built, comfortable ride and a good all-rounder.
Bad: Getting long in the tooth and starting to show its age now, gear linkage problems are common.
Good: Comes with impressive 1.6-litre diesel, very quiet and refined on the move, much improved interior, DAB as standard, similar cargo area design means existing racking and conversions will still fit.
Bad: Doesn't quite feel as high quality as the Transit Custom.
Good: Cheaper to run than old Vivaro, 1.4 tonne payload, 2.5 tonne towing capacity.
Bad: Smaller than the van it replaces, not available until mid-2019.
Good: Based on impressive Citroen SpaceTourer, well-equipped as standard, will carry up to nine adults,
Bad: Not available until late 2019.
Good: Low loading sill with the front-wheel drive models makes it easy to load heavy goods, strong engines and slick gearboxes, low running costs and 25,000-mile service intervals.
Bad: Insubstantial-feeling plastics, the 100PS model feels underpowered on the motorway. ESP not fitted as standard until 2014.
