Vauxhall Corsavan a hit in Scotland

The Vauxhall Corsavan, based on the successful Corsa supermini, has been chosen by solicitor estate agents Aberdein Considine because of its green credentials.

Emissions of 127g/km and combined cycle fuel economy of 58.9mpg has convinced the firm to take delivery of 24 Corsavans, decorated in full company livery, this week.

Senior Property Partner Mike Sinclair said: "Our choice of the Vauxhall Corsavan with its proven green credentials supports our company’s environmental policy and will help us to further reduce our carbon footprint."

The Vauxhall Corsa remains a favourite in Scotland, where it is the best-selling car this year with 5.140 models sold so far. In contrast, the UK’s best-selling car, the Ford Fiesta, has sold nearly 2,000 less models in Scotland.

It was this popularity that convinced Aberdein Considine to choose the Corsavan, says Sinclair. He added: "These stylish vans will present a good image for our company when our staff visit clients and when they are out on Scotland’s roads."

All of the vans are fitted with a 1.3CDTi Ecotec 90ps diesel engine and come in Sportive specification. The trim level includes a sportier exterior complete with roof spoiler, alloy wheels and a sport exhaust.

Inside, load space is 0.92 cubic metres and the load area is separated from the cabin by a steel bulkhead. All of the Vauxhall Corsavans are fitted with ABS, electronic brakeforce distribution and emergency brake assist.

Aberdein Considine will use the vans to replace most of its current fleet at 18 offices across the North East of Scotland and Perthshire.
