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.
– 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.
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.
– 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.
