Vauxhall has released a new range of accessories for its two latest models, Combo Life MPV and Combo Cargo van. From bike carriers and child seats to roof boxes and rear parking assistants, the stylish and practical equipment can help families and business users get the most out of their vehicle.
For additional carrying and towing options, the Combo Life and Combo Cargo can be equipped with fixed or removable towing hitch kits (from £485 RRP including VAT, excluding fitting) with a 13-pin harness for the electrical system and a maximum vertical load capacity of 74kg. In addition, the aluminium base roof carrier (from £191 RRP including VAT) makes the vehicle even more versatile, allowing it to transport up to two conventional bikes or one of many roof box options (from £154 RRP including VAT, up to 460 litres in volume or 75kg in load capacity). It can even be used to carry a surfboard, kayak, skis or snowboard.
On model variants with rear doors, steel or aluminium roof racks (from £533 RRP including VAT, excluding fitting) capable of carrying up to 115kg or 120kg respectively, can be installed on the Combo Life or Combo Cargo’s roof. Integrated load-rollers ensure easy loading and unloading. With extra options for tradespeople, such as ratchet tie-downs, fold-down load-stops and a ladder holder (£122 RRP including VAT, 50kg load capacity), the Combo Cargo can safely carry bulky items such as ladders, pipes and boards.
The Combo Life and Combo Cargo accessories help owners to organise the boot or cargo area and protect it from scratches and stains. Components tailored exclusively for the Combo Cargo include wooden floors, and plastic or wooden protection that fits over the sides of the cargo area. For the Combo Life, a high-edged, flexible and washable rubber cargo tray (£56 RRP including VAT) fits the boot perfectly and protects it from moisture and dirt.
To keep the interior neat and tidy, a practical organiser with two partitions, measuring 610x340x310mm, is available for all versions of the Combo (£51 RRP including VAT). It can hold a variety of items, from artists’ paintbrushes to plumbers’ tools, and is only 30mm thick when folded down and not in use. Special cup-holder inserts (£17 RRP including VAT) provide storage for smaller items, such as tissues, notepads and make-up.
Combo Life and Combo Cargo owners will also appreciate the anti-slip floor mats (from £25 RRP including VAT), available as carpet or all-weather material, for second as well as front-row seats. These help to protect the interior, not only from snow but also from mud, water, road salt or dirt.
The range of child seats and restraint systems for the Combo Life (from £166 RRP including VAT) cater for all age-groups and comply with the latest EU ECE-R 44/04 safety standard, including side impact protection. For easy installation and safety, the seats can be attached via ISOFIX and/or the vehicle’s three-point safety belts. The second-row seating in the Combo Life even accommodates three child seats next to each other – a real bonus for families and a rarity in the market.
If Combo Life or Combo Cargo drivers are involved in an incident on the road, the Road Angel Halo Drive dash camera (£184.99 RRP including VAT, SD card and hardwire kit) provides them with evidence in full 2K HD quality video. Featuring built-in wi-fi, drivers can watch a real-time video preview on their smartphones and download it if an accident happens. Halo Go (£144.99 RRP including VAT, SD card and hardwire kit) and Halo Pro (£229.99 RRP including VAT, SD card and hardwire kit) are also available.
Shades for the rear and side windows, including the windows in the sliding doors (from £46 RRP including VAT), provide additional protection for passengers in the Combo Life’s rear seats. As well as offering privacy, the shades also block strong sunlight and help to keep the interior cool.
The practical, comfortable and innovative Vauxhall Combo is available in several versions, either in standard (4.40 metres) or XL lengths (4.75 metres). Customers can order the Combo Life passenger car with five or seven seats, while professionals can increase the seating capacity of the Combo Cargo van from three to five seats with the optional crew cab. Both the passenger car and the commercial vehicle versions offer an array of innovative technologies and assistance systems that are unrivalled in this class.
