Combining everyday practicality with style, the Vauxhall Vivaro isn’t just spacious and family friendly; it aso wins the title of cheapest Vauxhall model for an MOT, costing only £39.46. 

Like any good luxury passenger vehicle, the Vivaro is packed with the latest technology, and for those adventurers out there, it’s one of the easiest vans to convert into a camper. Even better news is that it’s a class-leader for fuel economy, so it’s cheap to run and cheap to MOT!

Fighting for second place, it’s very close between the Mokka and Insignia - only four pence between them! - but the Vauxhall Mokka just about cinches it at £39.72. 

The Mokka - which, for anyone who’s been living under a rock the past few years and hasn’t spotted one on the road, is a subcompact crossover SUV - has been around since 2012, with the latest version being released in 2021. With a clean, minimalist interior featuring a fully digital cockpit, the Mokka’s popularity is only set to increase.

Perhaps surprisingly, the perennially popular Vauxhall Corsa is the most expensive model for an MOT. This is bad news for the thousands of young new drivers every year who opt for the Vauxhall supermini as their first car.

That being said, the difference in price between all of the models above is minimal, and overall, Vauxhall is known for being an affordable car brand. In fact, the Corsa is actually the cheapest small car to maintain in the UK according to recent WhoCanFixMyCar data.
