VAUX­HALL VI­VARO - LOAD-LUGGING CHAMP IS STILL KING OF THE ROADS

Belfast Telegraph - NI Carfinder - - News -

ONE of the strong­est per­form­ers in the light com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle seg­ment is the Vaux­hall Vi­varo.

As panel vans go, the Vi­varo is one of the big­gest-sell­ing and long­est-last­ing mod­els hav­ing been sold as the Vi­varo since 2001 but with a lin­eage (as the Vaux­hall Arena) go­ing back to the start of the 1980s.

The Vi­varo is the lynch­pin of Vaux­hall’s van range and is avail­able now in two main trim lev­els: Vi­varo and Vi­varo Sportive, and four body styles: panel van, dou­ble cab, 9-seater combi and plat­form cab.

The cur­rent Vi­varo is just a few years old, of­fers “class-lead­ing” build qual­ity and prac­ti­cal­ity with im­proved cargo di­men­sions and pay­load ca­pa­bil­ity over the out­go­ing model.

The cabin was en­hanced for com­fort and con­trol with high lev­els of spec­i­fi­ca­tion in­clud­ing modern in­fo­tain­ment with DAB ra­dio.

It is also equipped with a range of en­gines in­clud­ing a cut­ting edge Bi-turbo that de­liv­ers up to 47.9mpg and CO2 emis­sions as low as 155g/km.

The Vi­varo is built at Vaux­hall’s man­u­fac­tur­ing plant in Lu­ton, Bed­ford­shire. It is gen­er­ously specced with all mod cons to in­clude things like:

• Dig­i­tal Ra­dio, Blue­tooth and USB con­nec­tiv­ity

• Steer­ing col­umn mounted au­dio con­trol

• Elec­tri­cally op­er­ated front win­dows

• Elec­tri­cally op­er­ated and heated ex­te­rior mir­rors

• Driver’s airbag.

There is also range of stan­dard safety and equipment, in­clud­ing:

• ESP

• Remote con­trol cen­tral dead­lock­ing

• Elec­tronic en­gine dead­lock im­mo­biliser

• Dual front passengers’ bench seat

• Six-way adjustable driver’s seat with lum­bar sup­port and arm­rest

• Steer­ing col­umn adjustable for reach and rake

• Full steel bulk­head

• Fa­cia-mounted gear lever.

All vans come with a 12V socket in the cabin, and in the load area, to charge equipment and there’s also an on­board trip com­puter and a sun vi­sor with wide an­gle mir­ror.

If you trade up to Sportive trim, you get a range of ex­tra fea­tures on top of stan­dard trim in­clud­ing Park As­sist, load-through bulk­head, air con, and a pas­sen­ger bench seat with un­der-seat stor­age and mo­bile of­fice ca­pa­bil­ity.

You’ll also get one-touch elec­tri­cally op­er­ated win­dows, full-size wheel trims, front fog lights with chrome bezel, metal­lic paint and Led-sig­na­ture day­time run­ning lamps.

For those who like a lit­tle bit ex­tra on the out­side, Sportive trim also gets you an ex­te­rior ap­pear­ance pack with body-colour bumpers and mould­ings.

Op­tional ex­tras across the range in­clude:

• Tyre Pres­sure Mon­i­tor­ing Sys­tem

• Elec­tronic Cli­mate Con­trol

• Rear Re­vers­ing Cam­era

• Key­less En­try

• 17” Al­loy Wheels

• Tho­rax & Cur­tain Airbags.
