The Vauxhall Vivaro is the British manufacturer’s mid-sized van, offering greater capacity than the smaller Combo but without taking up the space occupied by the much bigger Movano. Nevertheless, this commercial vehicle delivers considerable payload flexibility. It’s also easy to drive and provides a comfortable ride. What’s more, the Vivaro boasts lots of safety kit as standard and a good choice of cost-effective engines.
2 lengths, 2 heights, 3 trim levels. Whichever you choose, the Vivaro is a model professional. Sportive models feature the FlexCargo bulkhead and 16” alloy wheels, while Elite models get upgraded 17” alloy wheels and body-coloured bumpers.
Powered by Vauxhall’s newest range of Euro 6 CDTi and BiTurbo diesel engines, the Vivaro’s a dream to drive. It will return up to 60.1mpg combined and boasts class-leading CO2 emissions. Power is good too, with up to 180PS available.
The FlexCargo bulkhead has a load-through hatch and allows you to fold the centre seat backrest down flat to use as a table. With it, load volume stands at 6.6 cubic metres with a massive payload capacity of 1,400kg.
With a 7” touchscreen, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, cruise control, Lane Keep Assist, a 180 rear-view camera and navigation available, the Vivaro makes life easy. It’s also available with IntelliGrip, a TCS system for extra traction on slippery ground.
Essential driver aids
In order to keep you, your co-travellers and your cargo safe and secure, a number of driver aids are installed as standard. Hill-Start Assist, for instance, provides you with full control of the vehicle when starting the engine on a slope. Another essential feature is Electronic Stability Programme, which ensures vehicular stability in all kinds of conditions – if necessary, by automatically applying phased braking pressure.
