Britain’s favourite commercial vehicles

Vauxhall Combo – 146,137 on the road

First launched in 1990s on the underpinnings of the Corsa, a second-generation model arrived in 2002. It used some Fiat engines – but the relationship became more fully-fledged in 2008 when the third generation Combo arrived – it’s mechanically identical to the Fiat Doblo.
