The Vauxhall VIVA is a practical city car with bags of personality. Supplied with a three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engine the VIVA is larger than the average supermini, combining practicality with cheeky styling.
The Vauxhall VIVA has the appearance of a rear-wheel drive, enhanced by side creases which add depth and a dynamic edge to this nippy 5-door hatchback. Chamfered bodywork lends aerodynamic styling starting just above the sill of the front door and rising to align with the rear wheel arch. The honeycomb grille is emblazoned with the Griffin badge, on higher spec models the fog lamps dominate the front end. At 3.675m it is by no means the smallest of city cars. The range-topping SL trim comes with 15” alloy wheels.
Built for the city, the Vauxhall VIVA’s 1.0-litre engine is in its element driving around town. Swift acceleration, on both the manual and automatic five-gear transmission options, mean your commute will be a breeze with no dawdling at junctions and roundabouts looking for a bigger gap. As with the ADAM, the VIVA comes equipped with a ‘city steering’ function which makes the steering extra light at low speeds to make it easier to make tight parking manoeuvres.
This economical engine is able to produce 75PS power output with an impressive 0-62mph time of 13.1 seconds. The standard entry model has fuel efficiency of 61.4mpg and carbon emissions of just 104g/km.
