Last updated 21 May 2019

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.

The latest Vauxhall Movano brings the British-badged van into direct competition with the likes of the Ford Transit and Fiat Ducato. It shares almost all of its components with the Renault Master, which includes a range of fine 2.3-litre turbodiesel engines and the choice of front or rear-wheel drive.

Vauxhall has also got wise to the needs of van users by offering the Movano in a huge variety of configurations. This allows users to choose from different wheelbases, body lengths and three different roof heights. With maximum cargo capacities ranging from 8.0m3 to 17.0m3 depending on which model you choose, the Movano offers more space than the Ford Transit when comparing like for like models.

The Movano also comes with a decent spread of safety kit that includes ABS anti-lock brakes and electronic brakeforce distribution on all models. Rear-wheel drive models of Movano also have ESP traction control as standard, though it’s a shame the front-drive models miss out on this as part of their basic specification.

However, the Movano does make up for this to some extent with its generous 25,000 miles intervals between oil services, which means less down time for operators. A three-year, 100,000-mile warranty is on a par with most of the competition.
