    Vauxhall Viva Pricing Announced

    Vauxhall Viva Pricing Announced, It’s Dirt Cheap At £7,995 - Photo Gallery
    BY MIRCEA PANAIT
    10TH APRIL 2015

    From 1963 to 1979, Vauxhall manufactured over a million and a half Viva small family cars. Other than the atrocity known as the Morris Minor and the Ford Anglia, the British motorist didn’t have any other choices. In a nutshell, the old school Viva wasn’t exactly a competent family saloon.

    Even Elvis Costello’s “The Beat” has a tongue-in-cheek reference to how proud Viva owners were: “I’ve been a bad boy with the standard leader, my neighbor’s revving up his Vauxhall Viva.” Happily, however, the 2015 Viva doesn’t have anything in common with the old model.

    Other than the name and badge, the modern Viva does a lot of things a lot better than the original. I know that this is just a 2015 Opel Karl (and 2016 Chevrolet Spark) dressed in British clothes, but it offers great value for money at just £7,995 RRP.

    LOL Gerry Marshalls ole Viva used to eat Camaro's in saloon car racing.

    The new Vauxhall Viva could not pull the skin off a rice pudding, let alone be on par with beat a Camaro today?

    GM Insider MIRCEA PANAIT rewriting the history again, nobody went to moon on July 16th, Concorde never really existed, will the new Viva beat a Camaro l doubt it very much.



    If only the new Viva engine could sound as sweet as these cars


    If you put the FWD South Korean Viva up against a Camaro on a race circuit today it would finish about 10 laps behind it, the Viva one finished in front of it.

    Price £££ saved is its only big selling point should shift a lot of very much non-descript rather low rent cheap lots of plastic budget cars, only worrying thing will it impact on the more lucrative Corsa sales at Vauxhall dealerships, if it does not them GM have got a decent Dacia beater with a mainstream badge.

    Viva sounds very exciting. You could make a song with that name.

    If it's being sold in the UK, maybe a vacation sail/drive to Spain in the new Viva..

    I'd say the old Viva was a much more exciting vehicle than the current one. But then again, maybe they gave the writer a fully equipped Insignia (previously collecting dust on the showroom floor) to write that?

    Amusingly in Canada was sold the Viva / Epic Envoy (LOL) but it was fantastically unreliable, GM had a publicity with 3 of them driving across country, but none of them made it without serious work

    What if they put a Z/28 302 in it like they did with the South African built Viva back then?

    The original had room for the longitudinal slant-4 2.0/2.3 used by the bigger Vauxhalls so finding the room for a V8, and it's transmmision, was at least possible - this new one is simply a rebadged Spark limited to a very small transverse I4 (or smaller!) - so the chances of fitting a I4 2.0 are about the same as a V8, exactly zero!

    I guess my attempt at humour was lost on you.
