If you’re looking for generous load capacity and optimum comfort, look no further than the new Vauxhall Vivaro – and choose a design that works for you (panel van or Doublecab).
The Vivaro now features a fresh, new design that commands attention on the road. You’ll notice attention to detail in every inch, from the integrated steps in the front bumper to the specially-designed headlights that provide more light at night. Meanwhile, in the loadspace, maximum area stands at 1.7 metres high and wide, so you’ll have plenty of room to transport larger loads.
You can take your pick from panel van and Double cab variants depending on your needs. And potential conversions include a tipper, low-floored vehicle transporter, and a spacious Luton van. Entry-level models come with Bluetooth, USB and digital radio, while the upgraded NAVI 50 is kitted out with IntelliLink – so you’ll get a seven-inch colour touchscreen with European map coverage.
Technology and comfort
The Vivaro is kitted out with plenty of infotainment systems. Available IntelliLink technology integrates with your smartphone, so you can use voice control to command your systems. TomTom Live Services are also available to keep you in the loop with traffic updates. For your comfort, instrument gauges are positioned directly behind the steering wheel, making them much easier for you to read. The gearstick is also closer to the driver’s seat than usual for your convenience.
Performance, engines, economy and efficiency
When it comes to engines, the Vivaro offers great levels of economy for a van of such proportions. You’ll want to go for the ECO system if efficiency is a top priority for you, while Turbo and BiTurbo diesel engines are ideally suited for everyday driving.
Every powertrain in the line-up is more than capable of getting you and your load from A to B with ease. Maximum payload stands at 1,281kg. It’s specifically designed to accommodate up to three Euro pallets, even in the smallest L1 model.
Safety and security
Whichever version of the Vivaro you go for, your safety is assured with a vast and varied selection of protective features built in. You’ll enjoy ESP-plus, complete with increased traction control – and that means you’ll be able to tackle tricky road surfaces with ease. ABS and Hill Start Assist give you additional support. And the padded head restraints and driver’s airbag are designed to reduce the effects in the event of impact.
