Priced from £22,020 excluding VAT, the Vivaro is 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 and Blind Spot Detection.
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.
With the new Vivaro, Vauxhall continues to implement its PACE! strategic plan by investing in growing market segments with high volumes. Vauxhall will offer a purely electric version in 2020, another milestone on the journey to electrifying the brand. Groupe PSA is the leader in the European light commercial vehicle (LCV) business and, in future, Vauxhall/Opel will also have responsibility for the global development of LCVs for the whole of the group.
“As the UK’s largest CV manufacturer celebrating its 90th year of van production, we’re proud to build a new Vivaro model that not only has class-leading credentials, but also secures the future of our Luton workforce for many years to come,” said Stephen Norman, Vauxhall’s Group Managing Director.
PAYLOAD, CAPACITY AND FLEXIBILITY
Available in two lengths (4.95m and 5.30m), three body styles and three trims
Up to 1,458kg payload, 6.6m3 cargo capacity and 2,500kg towing capacity
With a maximum cargo capacity of 6.6m3, the new Vivaro has a payload of up to 1,458kg, 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 Flex Cargo, 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.
Automatic side sliding doors are also available for the first time on Vivaro. A foot movement towards the sensors on the vehicle is all that is needed to open the door.
Stability and safety on a variety of slippery surfaces – mud, sand or snow – is provided by the advanced IntelliGrip traction control system (optional) including the work-site set-up comprising higher ground clearance and underbody protection.
DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS AND CONNECTIVITY
Latest technology on par passenger car driver assistance systems and connectivity
Smart phone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
Multimedia Navi features European navigation with 3D view
Inside, the new Vivaro is bristling with all the latest technology, on a par with the driver assistance systems and connectivity that is usually only seen in passenger cars.
The Vivaro is available with a Head Up Display so that drivers can see all important information and keep their eyes on the road. The additional front-camera and radar-based systems include:
Lane Keep Assist
Traffic Sign Recognition
Drowsiness Alert, which advises the driver to take a break after two hours of non-stop driving, or by monitoring the driving behaviour, warns of drowsiness via visual and acoustic signals.
Adaptive Cruise Control, which adjusts the speed according to that of the preceding vehicle, without actively braking.
Forward Collision Alert, which gives a two-level warning of a potential front impact.
Automatic Emergency Braking, which can avoid a crash or reduce its effects.
The Vivaro features ultrasonic sensors in the front and rear aprons. They warn the driver of obstacles when parking and monitor the side blind spot. Depending on the equipment level, the rear-view camera image is displayed either in the interior mirror or on the seven-inch display.
The Multimedia and Multimedia Navi infotainment systems come with a large seven-inch touchscreen. Both feature phone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Multimedia Navi additionally features European navigation with 3D view.
A multitude of seating adjustments, some of them electric, including lumbar support and armrest, mean the driver-oriented cockpit is as comfortable as that of a passenger car.
RANGE, PRICING AND EQUIPMENT
Available to order now priced from £22,020 excluding VAT
New Vivaro arrives in Vauxhall showrooms in late summer
Available in two lengths (4.95m and 5.30m), three body styles and three trims
Arriving in Vauxhall showrooms in July, the all-new Vivaro van is available to order now priced from £22,020 excluding VAT.
The all-new Vivaro is 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 (priced from £24,270 excluding VAT) 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 (priced from £26,370 excluding VAT) features the latest safety technology as standard including lane departure warning, speed limit information, intelligent speed adaptation, driver attention alert and blind spot detection.
The Edition Doublecab (priced from £25,750 excluding VAT) features an innovative hinged steel-mesh bulkhead that articulates forward when the second row seats are folded and not in use. This flexible solution enables maximum utilisation also as a “panel van”, with load volume increasing from 4m3 to 5.5m3. Sportive and Elite Doublecabs feature an integrated bulkhead with a three-passenger rear bench. There is also under-seat storage, and allocation under the seat for longer loads (from cargo side).
The all-new Vivaro range features an array of powerful yet frugal engines and smooth transmissions, for low running costs, reduced emissions and maximum efficiency. All are validated and approved to Euro 6D Temp (Euro 6.2) which utilises the more real world representative WLTP emissions cycle. WLTP also takes into consideration options, and the impact of payload.
On the entry level 1.5D (100PS) engine, torque has been improved to 270Nm. Towing has also been improved with up to 2,500kg available. Additionally the factory-fitted tow bar option comes standard with Trailer Stability Control (TSC). TSC uses an electronic stability programme to dampen the vibrations of the trailer as necessary. If severe vibrations are detected which indicates an unsafe and unstable driving condition, then the system will slow the vehicle to a critical pace.
