VAUXHALL'S new five-door entry level model the Viva will cost from £7,995 when it hits the streets this summer.

The Viva line-up comprises two trim levels, SE and SL, the latter of which is a name carried over from the original Vauxhall Viva, while there will also be Air Con and ecoFLEX versions of the SE grade.

Both feature kit like a tyre pressure monitoring system, city mode steering, lane departure warning, cruise control with speed limiter and front fog lights with cornering function as standard.

Technology includes ESP, and traction control, cornering brake control, emergency brake assist, straight line stability control and hill start assist are also on every car.

Vauxhall says that all Viva models will also feature six airbags, AM/FM radio with aux-in and steering wheel controls, electric front windows, electric/heated mirrors and remote central door locking.

And not only is the £8,170 Viva SE ecoFLEX model super-frugal in returning a potential 65.7mpg and 99g/km, but it also gets a front lip spoiler, extended rear spoiler with LED brake light and ultra-low rolling resistance tyres over the entry version.

Priced from £9,495, SL trim features electronic climate control, Morocanna seat trim, leather steering wheel and 15-inch alloy wheels.

Other highlights are six speakers, USB audio connection, Bluetooth music streaming and mobile phone portal.

Options available include a Winter Pack - heated seats and steering wheel - rear parking sensors and electric glass sliding sunroof.

Vauxhall chairman Tim Tozer said: "Short, crisp and full of character, Vauxhall's new entry-level model is a proper small car and will hold great appeal in this rapidly growing sector."
