Vauxhall has announced pricing and full specifications for its new British-built Vivaro. The latest version of the company’s multi award-winning van range, which made its debut at this year’s Commerical Vehicle Show in Birmingham, is now available in two trim levels, the basic Vivaro and Vivaro Sportive, and four body styles; panel van, double cab, nine-seater combi and platform cab.
Prices for the new Vivaro van start from:
Prices start at £17,995 for the panel van, £450 less than the outgoing previous Vivaro. The double cab body style begins at £21,795, while the nine-seater combi and platform cab models have starting prices of £25,699 and £25,658 respectively. The Vivaro’s new and eye-catching design features, with its prominent grille, distinctive headlamps and embedded chrome accents, are complemented by state-of-the-art technologies both under the bonnet and in the cabin. Vauxhall say that the latest version of the Vivaro will offer class-leading build quality and practicality with improved cargo dimensions and excellent payload capability. The enhanced cabin is designed for comfort and control with high levels of specification including modern infotainment features with DAB radio Bluetooth and USB connectively and a steering column-mounted audio control.
Additional features include electrically operated windows and exterior mirrors, electronic stability control, remote central deadlocking and an electronic engine deadlock immobiliser. The Vivaro also boasts a dual front passengers’ bench seat, a six-way adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support and armrest as well as a fully adjustable steering column, full steel bulkhead, 12v sockets in the cabin and load areas and an on-board trip computer.
Under the bonnet, the Vivaro comes equipped with a range of diesel engines, including the cutting edge Bi-Turbo engine that ensures optimum pulling power and delivers up to 47.9mpg while keeping CO2 emissions as low as 155g/km. The Sportive model also includes a number of additional features over the basic variant, which include front fog lights with chrome bezel, metallic paint options, LED daytime running lamps and a passenger bench seat with under-seat storage. Other features with the new Vivaro Sportive include park assist, cruise control and an exterior appearance pack. The pack adds body-colour lower front, rear and rear quarter bumpers, body-colour side-protection mouldings and a chrome grille alongside an enhanced premium interior. A range of extra options are also available including a monitoring system for tyre pressure, electronic climate control, a rear reversing camera, keyless entry as well as 17-inch alloy wheels and additional airbags. The New Vivaro is being built at Vauxhall’s manufacturing plant in Luton, which has received a significant investment in excess of £185 million. Over 40 per cent of content for the new vehicle will be sourced locally while the plant and its associated agencies directly employ over 1,200 people in the Luton area, which contributes significantly to both the local and wider UK economies. More than 44,000 vans were built by the company in the UK last year, all of which were produced at the Luton factory, making Vauxhall the UK’s leading van manufacturer in terms of output.
