    IT'S HAUL RIGHT NOW (some text hidden)

    By Jonathan Crouch

    The Vauxhall Movano gets a package of well-chosen improvements that make it even better equipped to take on the big guns in the large panel van class. Jonathan Crouch reports.

    We're asking an increasing amount of our commercial vehicles. Panel vans were once little more than wheeled shipping containers, tools for moving cargos from A to B with all the creature comforts of a single room in a Mongolian prison. Today, the driver is much closer to the heart of van design and Vauxhall's latest Movano panel van aims to set the class standard for installing smiles on the faces of the people behind the wheel.

    Size isn't everything but it does help when you're competing in the large panel van sector. This improved Vauxhall Movano can certainly live with the big boys, packing a 17m3 maximum load volume and a length of close to seven meters in its most capacious form. It comes in a multitude of other shapes and sizes too with a driver-focused cabin and advanced engines also standing it in good stead.

    Vauxhall may these days be wedded to the PSA Peugeot Citroen Group but its largest LCV, the Movano, was designed with Renault and is the same as a Renault Master (and a Nissan NV400) to all intents and purposes. This is by no means an unusual practice in the automotive world and the economies of scale bring benefits to all parties. At some point, the Movano model line will transfer to the platform used for the Peugeot Boxer and Citroen Relay, but for the time being, this van stays Renault-derived and has been updated with a thoughtful package of improvements.
