Vauxhall Viva: full details on new city car

Prices and specs for the new Vauxhall Viva have been revealed – following the city car’s debut at the Geneva Motor Show last month. 

Only one engine will be available from launch, with a choice of SE and SL specifications. The entry-level 1.0-litre SE model will cost from £7,995, with the top-spec SL priced at £9,495.

Not all cars will benefit from air conditioning. In order to stay cool this summer you’ll need to spec the SE Air Con trim – or opt for the more expensive SL. That said, all models do get kit such as tyre pressure monitoring, lane departure warning, cruise control and front fog lights as standard.

The cheapest cars to run

Electric front windows, heated door mirrors, steering wheel-mounted audio controls and a multi-function trip computer are also included, as is a height-adjustable driver’s seat and tiltable steering column. 

The more expensive SL trim adds climate control, USB connectivity, Bluetooth for your mobile phone and a six speaker stereo. It also gets a leather-covered steering wheel, tinted rear windows and 15-inch alloy wheels. Options include a Winter Pack offering heated seats and a heated steering wheel, as well as rear parking sensors and an electric sunroof.
