Available to order now and arriving in Vauxhall showrooms this summer, the third generation Vivaro van is a based on a new platform and available in two lengths: 4.95m and 5.30m). Body styles include a panel van, a double cab for up to six and a platform-only chassis.
Priced from £21,240 (excluding VAT), the Vivaro will be available in three trim levels: Edition, Sportive and Elite. Double-sided sliding doors, driver/passenger airbags and cruise control with speed-limiter are all available as standard on the Vivaro for the first time.
The uprated Sportive trim grade offers 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, level 3 driver attention alert and blind spot detection.
With a maximum cargo capacity of 6.6m3, the new Vivaro has a payload of up to 1,400kg, 200kg more than its predecessor. The same applies to towing weights: the maximum trailer load is 2,500kg, 500kg more than the outgoing model.
Objects up to 4.02m long can be stowed securely in the 5.30m version thanks to FlexCargo, an optional load-through flap under the front passenger seat. Adding to its office on wheels credentials, the FlexCargo also allows the back of the middle seat to fold down to become a table for documents, a notebook or a tablet.
Vauxhall’s all-new Vivaro, which is based on Groupe PSA’s EMP2 platform, will help secure 1,250 jobs at its manufacturing plant in Luton. Vauxhall is the UK’s largest commercial vehicle manufacturer with over one million Vivaro-type vans built since production started in 2001. Investment in the new vehicle will help increase the plant’s production capacity to 100,000 units per year.
