Vauxhall claims the new Vivaro, which shares its design with the Renault Trafic, combines the functionality of a light commercial vehicle with the comfort and design flair of a passenger car.
Like the Trafic, the new Vivaro will also arrive in UK dealerships this summer.
Approximately 500,000 vehicles are sold annually in West and Central Europe in this segment, with the Vivaro accounting for nearly 10% cent of this total.
Customers can choose between two body design trim levels on the new Vivaro.
The Vivaro variant (first trim level) has front bumper, grille, side mirror housings and the vertical rear mouldings presented in a black textured plastic material.
For the Sportive trim level all body elements including the front bumper, side mouldings, vertical rear bumper corners and the side mirrors are painted in the vehicle’s body colour and the grille has chrome accents.
The new Vivaro colour palette comprises eleven standard colours, with five solid and six two-coat metallic finishes.
The new van will be available in various configurations in two overall lengths and two heights as a panel van, Combi and double cab.
Customers can choose from two new turbo diesel engines: a 1.6 CDTi, as well as a 1.6 BiTurbo CDTi, which Vauxhall is expecting to achieve 47mpg.
Prices will be revealed closer to launch this summer.
