Vauxhall Movano Luton Review

April 28th, 2023

The Vauxhall Movano Luton at a glance

It seems like every other week, a new van model is being released and mass produced for road users in The UK. From tippers manufactured by leading French and nItalian companies, to budget low loaders imported from Japan, each of these models serve a purpose, but there’s rarely anything groundbreaking to truly capture the imagination. For these reasons, you’re unlikely to feel inspired by the latest conversion in Vauxhall’s popular Movano range – but if you’re thinking that the redesigned Movano Luton is just a run of the mill Luton van, then you couldn’t be more wrong. It has a fresh new design and greater payload capacity, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. Continue ahead as we delve deeper into the specifics of this glorious new release.

Luton vans have long been identified as the ideal choice for business fleets and individuals looking for reliable and secure transport. With a larger payload, fantastic functionality and safety convenience features as standard, you’re getting plenty of bang for your buck. The incredibly large payload is among the best on the market, while a recognisable and visually pleasing design means that you’ll be arriving in style to jobs and client sites. Though Luton vans (as you’ll likely know) are commonly used in the moving industry, they are also just as practical within any business that has to shift large amounts of goods, or payloads that are awkward shapes – Designed with transport in mind.

Engines and Spec

Multiple trades are considered within the design of this versatile large van, and with a tail-lift attached to the back, you can easily load and unload goods, no matter how heavy they are. This can help reduce the risk of injury during manual loading,and is just one of many strings to the proverbial bow of this van. With a 2.3-litre engine, users can expect a powerful drive – with even higher torque than previous models, no mean feat considering the already significant specs. The powerful engine allows you to transport goods with ease, even when carrying the very limit of the Movano’s payload.

Despite the power it produces, you can expect a quiet and smooth ride, regardless of the Euro 6d compliant 2.3-litre diesel engine you opt for. Available in 120PS, 140PS and 165P, all with a six-speed manual gearbox, this motor maintains great operating costs, keeping emissions low and delivering outstanding fuel economy. Not impressed with this van in particular? For a wide array of diesel, petrol and electric vans, don’t hesitate to take a look at the Van Sales UK range. With hundreds of new favourites, we’re sure to stock a model ideal for you.


The interior is where noticeable changes are plentiful, as the entire cab has been redesigned to provide plenty of space for passenger and driver alike. Made to comfortably seat the driver and two additional passengers, there are plenty of premium storage options – including a glovebox, lower storage trays, overhead storage, drink holders and door pockets. This leaves plenty of space for whatever else you need to store, even when being used as a mobile office for busy workers on the go. Most impressively, the Movano range of vans can carry a payload of up to 2100kg, with an internal length, width and height of 4035mm x 2735mm x 2120mm. This is perfect to carry incredibly large payloads and awkwardly shaped objects.

Feature-wise, inside the van, you can expect grab rails and restraint systems, so any cargo that you carry can be easily secured. This is ideal if you’re transporting valuable or delicate goods. Job applicability is adaptable, and this Vauxhall offering can be utilised by removal companies, and large item couriers to name just two audiences. Keeping safe need not be an issue eithwe, with innovative dashboard features including an integrated 5-inch touchscreen (with satnav), rear-view camera to make manoeuvring safer, rear parking sensors and more.

Electric vehicles have lower running costs, and the electric variant retains many of the big benefits we’ve outlined in this review.
