Built to take it all
Reliable and extremely versatile, the British-made Vivaro is a competent commercial vehicle. The Vauxhall Vivaro balances capability with fuel efficiency, helping you keep running costs low and get the most from your business.
The balanced proportions and contemporary detailing of the Vivaro make it an appealing van to look at. This van is available in many forms, with two wheelbase options, two roof heights and a single or double cab. The panel van has two rear swing doors and a sliding side door, both of which are wide enough to fit a Euro pallet with ease. There is also a combi variant which is fully glazed and allows you to transport up to nine people comfortably.
The cargo area of the Vivaro can accommodate up to 8,600 litres when you opt for the long wheelbase and high roof option. When you opt for the FlexCargo bulkhead, your load space length extends to 4,150mm. This feature is standard fit on the Vivaro Sportive. The maximum payload capacity is 1,281kg. In the double cab model, the load space volume is 4,000 litres and you get a three-person rear passenger bench. In both, the cargo area is fitted with floor-mounted, load-restraint lashing eyes.
The versatile seating in the Vivaro combi can seat up to nine with the option of folding or removing the two rear benches. The comfortable cabin offers plenty of space, and is also extremely robust with a rubber floor covering.
The engine lineup comprises five refined diesel units, with power outputs ranging from 89bhp to 138bhp. Three of these engines are fitted with start/stop technology to enhance fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions. As a result, the 1.6-litre CDTi BiTurbo unit returns up to 47.9mpg. To reduce running costs further, you can also engage the Eco Mode, which boosts engine efficiency and gives the driver instant feedback on how economical their driving is, as well as a rating out of 100 at the end of each journey.
Safety and technology
The Vivaro is equipped with Vauxhall’s latest technology. On the entry-level model, you can enjoy Bluetooth® and USB connectivity and DAB digital radio as standard. You can also dock your smartphone or tablet to the dashboard for security and ease of use when you are on the move. There is also a sophisticated satellite navigation system, with a seven-inch touchscreen and controls mounted on the steering wheel.
The Vivaro’s safety features include an Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) as standard, along with roll-over mitigation and load adaptive control. The Sportive model also has parking sensors fitted as standard, and there is an optional reversing camera.
