Vauxhall Movano (2021 – 2024) Review

Vauxhall Movano (2021 – 2024) At A Glance


+Huge, multiple body styles, good value, punchy engines

-Dated in places, ride can be a bit crashy

It was all-change for Vauxhall when the current Movano debuted in 2021, based on an existing large van from its sister brands, but is it as good as its heavy-duty predecessor? Read our full Vauxhall Movano review to find out.

When Vauxhall became part of the Stellantis Group, the move brought to an end a commercial vehicle partnership with Renault that had existed between the two brands since the early 1990s.

The previous Movano, which was essentially the same van as the Renault Master, was a crucial model in Vauxhall’s line-up, offered in a myriad of body styles and popular with converters. Its replacement is less adaptable. The basic van shares its bodywork and engines with the Peugeot Boxer, Citroen Relay and Fiat Ducato, which are lighter duty vans but are still more than capable contenders in the large van market – indeed, for SMEs and private users they’re cheaper to run and maintain, so while Vauxhall may have lost some of its big van appeal to fleets, it has increased the appeal to smaller users.

Just the one trim level is offered, known as ‘Prime’, but it’s well-equipped with electronic climate control, cruise control and a touchscreen as standard. Safety features include forward collision alert, blind spot warning, brake assist and lane departure warning.

Apart from the badging it looks identical to the Citroen Relay, Peugeot Boxer and Fiat Ducato, with the Vauxhall grille being cleverly incorporated into the bumper moulding.

There are three lengths and three roof height choices known as L2, L3, L4 and  H1, H2 and H3, all pretty easy to interpret, while the Vauxhall Movano is also available as a crew van, chassis cab, a chassis crew cab and a platform cab with a single row of three seats. Customers can also choose from a number of approved conversions including tippers and dropsides.

All Movanos come with a standard three-year warranty.
