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.
