Vauxhall Combo Cargo Voted Best Small Van at Parkers Awards

The Vauxhall Combo Cargo is a vehicle that is ideal for commercial use. Vauxhall is a brand known for making affordable, yet stylish and high performing vehicles, and this model is no different from the rest. The Combo Cargo is a small van that has gained a lot of recognition in previous years, such as a Parkers award.


So, what is so great about this nippy little van? Well, today we want to take a rundown of the best features of the Vauxhall Combo Cargo and why you should consider investing in one for your business.

Driving Experience

 When it comes to performance on the road, small vans have the advantage of performing in a similar way to cars. However, a lot of small vans can still feel clunky and strained on the road and it is important for us to find something a bit more enjoyable. Say hello to the Combo Cargo… this small van provides a supple and comfortable ride and can provide a much-needed kick when on the motorway. There are two different engine sizes to choose from:

1.2-litre 110PS petrol, or a 1.5-litre CDTi diesel. The one you choose will largely depend on your daily mileage, as often diesel vehicles are better for use in long journeys. You’ll have no trouble reaching great speed with this van and you will have a safe and secure vehicle to enjoy.


Let’s face it: vans aren’t sexy. Where you can find a stunning sleek design for your own road vehicle...  vans tend to look largely the same and are less than pretty. However, the Combo Cargo has a practical and aesthetically pleasing shape for a van of this type. It has a very Peugeot-Citroen feel to it and can often be mistaken for one of these brands. The inside of the van is very much like a car and you won’t find a lot of things that feel different from a Corsa or Astra inside. It has a built-in armrest for long journeys and great lumbar support for those long stints on the road.


When choosing a vehicle for commercial use there will always be an emphasis on the price point. You never want to overspend on a company vehicle but at the same time you should invest in something that works for you and will last. The Combo Cargo costs between £16,000-£21,000 and this is a very competitive price for the type of van you are after. One great money-saving feature of this van is that it will tell you if you have overloaded the vehicle, causing a higher cost of fuel. If you load over 80% of capacity, the van will flash and tell you so that you can make some adjustments.


If you are in the market for a van that is comfortable, small, and practical… the Combo Cargo should be high on your list. Vauxhall always offer the best value for money mixed with style and technology, so this is a van that will be a staple in your business for a long time to come.
