Vauxhall’s all-new Vivaro is a true class-leader. Equipped with the 100PS 1.5-litre engine, the standard wheelbase Vivaro has, provisionally, 22 per cent-lower emissions and returns 16 per cent-higher miles per gallon than the market leader. The same engine with 120PS – again, provisionally - has 27 per cent fewer emissions and achieves 57.6mpg – 14 per cent higher than the market leader. The Vivaro’s payload of up to 1489kgs is also higher than the market leader’s.
It’s full of innovation, as well. In terms of cargo length, thanks to the new Vivaro’s FlexCargo system, the maximum length it can take is a full 21 per cent longer than the market leader, and a staggering 43 per cent greater than the equivalent of the number two in the market.
Available to order now and arriving in Vauxhall showrooms this summer, the third generation Vivaro medium van is a based on a state-of-the-art platform and available in two lengths (L1H1 4.95m and L2H1 5.30m). Body styles include panel van, doublecab for up to six occupants and a platform chassis.
Priced from £22,918.33 excluding VAT, the Vivaro will be available in three trim levels: Edition, Sportive and Elite. Dual Side Sliding Door, Driver/Passenger Airbags and Cruise Control with speed-limiter are all available as standard on Vivaro for the first time.
Reflecting the demands of an evolving market, Sportive models are higher specification than the outgoing model with standard equipment including body coloured mirrors, handles and body side moulds, alarm, auto lights and wipers, acoustic windscreen and thickened side glazing.
The top-of-the range Elite model features the latest safety technology as standard including Lane Departure Warning, Speed Limit Information, Intelligent Speed Adaptation, Driver Attention Alert Level Three and Blind Spot Detection.
