VAUXHALL has announced that a new Combi version of the Vivaro, will be unveiled at the Commercial Vehicle show in Hanover this week.
The second generation of the best-selling van will be unveiled on Vauxhall sister Opel stand and offers considerably more space and additional load volume compared to its predecessor. Plus, it also comes as a double cab and platform chassis.
Panel van, Combi and Doublecab variants are all available in two chassis lengths (4,998 or 5,398mm). The panel van is also offered in two different heights (1,971 or 2,465mm).
However, compared to the predecessor, the new variants of the Vauxhall Vivaro have up to 100mm more loading space length.
The cab has also been extended in length by 116mm and the changes result in more load volume with the panel van offering up to 8.6 cubic meters.
There are numerous intelligent storage possibilities for the driver and passenger, which are the main requirements for the new Vivaro to function as a modern workhorse and mobile office.
The panel van has a standard closed bulkhead and waist-high side trim paneling in the load space. The sliding door on the passenger side is completely paneled just like the double-wing rear doors which open up to 180 degrees.
An office bench seat with a fold-down centre section turns the Vivaro panel van into a mobile office. The seat can quickly be converted into a small writing desk revealing a removable clipboard and a storage compartment, suitable for your laptop.
The Vauxhall Vivaro Combi has standard, removable three-seat benches in the second and third rows.
In addition, the backrest in the third row is tiltable. The rear compartment is protected by interior trim paneling.
The IntelliLink-Infotainment-System, with a seven inch color touchscreen and navigation function, is available for the first time in the Vivaro.
Two completely new turbo diesels in four different outputs ensure an economical and lively drive. The available engines include the 1.6 CDTI with 66 kW/90 hp and 85 kW/115 hp along with the 1.6 BiTurbo CDTI engine with sequential charging and twin-cooler-system delivering 88 kW/120 hp and 103 kW/140 hp respectively.
The two simultaneously operating turbo chargers ensure that this engine combines excellent performance with economic fuel consumption.
The 88 kW Bi-Turbo driven Vivaro Combi can use as less as 5.7 litres per 100 Kilometres, which is equivalent to a CO2 emission of a mere 149 grams per Kilometer.
The new Vivaro panel van is available from the equivalent of £19,130 net of taxes but its UK price is not yet confirmed.
