Vauxhall has cracked open the festive champagne a little early this year following a double win at the What Van? annual awards.
The Luton-based manufacturer saw its Corsavan crowned the Small Van of the Year, while the firm's ecoFLEX range received the Green Award.
Corsavan was singled out for praise as a result of its impressive CO2 emissions of just 95g/km.
Those on the judging panel also highlighted the smooth and flexible nature of the Euro 5-compliant 1.3CDTi 16v turbo diesel engine.
The Green Award is especially significant for the firm after it became the first van maker to feature an eco-model for each van in its range.
Indeed, the Corsavan, Astravan, Combo, Vivaro and Movano have all been given the ecoFLEX treatment in the recent past.
Paul Barker, What Van? Editor, commented: "Vauxhall's impressive ecoFLEX technology and efforts to show exactly which are the most efficient models help operators save fuel and therefore money, while the Corsavan has taken another step forward in emissions during 2011, making it more appealing than ever and a worthy Small Van of the Year winner."
