Vauxhall Movano

The Movano is sold with one level of specification, which includes a driver’s airbag, two in-cab 12V power points, remote audio controls on the steering column and plenty of storage options.

Electric windows and electrically adjustable and heated mirrors come as standard too, and the back of the middle seat folds down and turns into a desk.

Vauxhall deserves particular praise for adding a mirror in the passenger sun visor that enables the driver to spot anything lurking in the nearside blind spot.

The 2.3-litre CDTI diesel digs in nicely as you accelerate away from rest and provides a steady and uninterrupted stream of power all the way up the rev range. As well as turning in a gutsy performance on A and B roads it easily holds its own on high-speed motorways.

The Movano is sold with either front- or rear-wheel drive, and for a relatively big van it handles surprisingly well, with plenty of feedback from a nicely weighted steering system that aids manoeuvrability at low speeds. The unladen ride is a bit choppy, though, and the cab could do with a bit more sound-deadening.
