The all-new British-built Vivaro scooped Best Newcomer, with judges commenting that the van is ‘chic, stylish, hugely practical and cost effective’. The recognition for Vivaro comes as the new model received its world premiere at the CV Show this week.
Gaining further recognition for Vauxhall, the Combo Cargo was named Best Small Trades Van, with the deciding panel commenting that ‘traders can be sure of a rock solid vehicle, together with the back-up of Vauxhall’s legendary dealer network.’
Completing the hat-trick of award category wins, the Movano was awarded Best Trader’s Choice. Judges commented that the commercial vehicle ‘continues to impress trade van buyers who need a large vehicle. A superb driving experience awaits with lots of space in the rear and an economical set of running costs.’
Trade Van Driver Magazine editor, Matthew Eisenegger, commented: “Trade Van Driver Magazine prides itself on offering a true reflection of the thoughts and feelings of its readership. Now in their eighth year, it is great to see some products taking the accolade for an eighth time, as well as new products scoring a first win.”
The Trade Van Driver Awards aim to give recognition to the manufacturers, firms and people who offer the very best to retail van buyers.
