The Corsavan has been the cornerstone of Vauxhall’s commercial range for what seems like forever.
The current Corsavan dates back to 2015, just six months after the launch of the heavily face-lifted car on which it is based, but the whole range passes the latest EU6 emissions criteria.
It is designed to take on established rivals such as the Ford Fiesta, Citroen Nemo and Peugeot’s Bipper.

Being based on a supermini car, the Corsavan’s load capacity isn’t huge at 0.92m3 and 571kg payload, but where this Vauxhall van triumphs is in the car-like drive, its compact size and low running costs.
So it’s perfect for small delivery services, or getting staff in and out of town.
With their compact size, it’s all about the low emissions and low running costs in this segment and in winning 1.3 CDTI 16v ecoFLEX form, this Vauxhall impresses as the CO2 is just 87g/km with 85.6mpg economy.
The rear seats might be gone, but you’ll be pleased to know the Corsavan drives as well as the car. This means taut handling, a comfortable ride and responsive steering.
Standard specifications are plentiful, but If this isn’t enough, options include Vauxhall’s Intellilink 7-inch touchscreen sat-nav system and a Winter Pack that includes heated seats and a windscreen.
