Vauxhall Arena Overview

The Vauxhall Arena is a commercial van which is marketed by the British Automobile manufacturing company Vauxhall Motors. Vauxhall Motors is a subsidiary of the German company Opel, and is only use3d on the UK market. The Arena was only on the market for a few years, from 1997 to 2000. It is basically a rebadged Renault Trafic which was replaced by the Vauxhall Vivaro in 2000. These vehicles are very spacious, great work horses and the diesel engines are really good. They were not very reliable or comfortable but they handled pretty well and were very practical. Does this sound anything like your experience of this vehicle?

Vauxhall Arena History

The Vauxhall Arena was introduced in 1997, based on the Renault Trafic. The Arena is basically a rebadged Renault Trafic and was brought onto the market towards the end of the first generation Renault Trafic. Although the Arena was the same vehicle, it was designed by Renault in Paris and was produced at Vauxhall's production plant in Luton. As the first generation Renault Trafic ceased production in 2000, this meant the end of the Arena and the beginning of the Vauxhall Vivaro. The Vivaro, like the Arena was a rebadged second generation Renault Trafic.

Fuel Economy

The Vauxhall Arena was available in 1.9 and 2.5L diesel engines. Both these engines were pretty good economically, and would compete with any diesel engine on a commercial van. Which engine did you have and how did it perform in terms of fuel economy? Remember to think about age, fuel type and engine size when considering fuel economy for a vehicle.
