An entry-level offer from Vauxhall, the Viva was introduced in 2015 as a small, practical and easy-to-drive city car. Efficient engines mean it’s cheap to run, with the most impressive feature being the generous space for rear passengers. A useful kit list and smart looks also count in its favour, but Vauxhall stopped production in 2019 when it decided to revitalize its line-up. One reason the Viva didn’t sell too well in its short life was its relatively high price tag. However, as a used car in today’s market, it offers great value. If you’re looking for a funky urban runabout with lots of great features, you’ll love it.
