Introducing the Opel Vivaro
The Opel Vivaro has represented an excellent all-round performer for some time now, which is reflected in the sheer number of them we see on a daily basis.
Now, Opel have made the Vivaro even more practical and packed it with some of the latest technology on the market. Better still, the Vivaro is the class-leader when it comes to fuel economy, which means less trips to the pumps and more money staying in your pocket.
With a variety of specifications and options to choose from, you won't be struggling to find a van that suits your needs. The Vivaro van even comes as a 100% electric version, the Vivaro-e.
The Vivaro can be configured into a variety of different specifications, which ultimately depend on your needs as a business. You can choose from the traditional Panel Van for starters, a DoubleCab if you need the extra seats, or a Platform Cab for the ultimate in flexibility.
There's only one height to choose from, but you can choose between two different wheelbases. The shortest one, called 'L1', gives you 2.51 metres of load length (3.67 metres if you select the optional FlexCargo pack). Go for the longer wheelbase, called 'L2, and you get 2.86 metres of load length (grows to 4.02 metres with FlexCargo).
The payload of each wheelbase is roughly the same, with the shorter variant being able to carry up to 1,458 kg, while the longer wheelbase can haul up to 1,415 kg.
Vivaro has been designed from the ground up to make life easier and more efficient, which is why it comes loaded with the latest driver aids and safety technology.
Semi-adaptive cruise control is a must-have for those long slogs on the motorway between jobs, while the speed sign recognition feature keeps an eye on the speed limit for you. An exclusive bit of tech comes in the form of the virtual head-up display, which shows key details in the driver's line of vision.
Safety features include:
Having the lowest emissions in the class is something to brag about in its own right, yet the Vivaro manages to offer the best fuel economy in its segment too! Translated, that's less money coming out of your pocket and a substantial reduction in pollution on a daily basis.
There's two diesel engines for you to choose from; a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine and a larger 2.0-litre engine, both of which come with auto start/stop.
A 6-speed manual gearbox comes as standard, although the option for a super-efficient 8-speed automatic is there if you want it.
Tomorrow's game-changer comes in the form of the Vivaro-e, an all-electric variant that will transform how your business day looks.
Fuel consumption and emissions are kept to an absolute minimum, while the driving dynamics are taken to a new level thanks to the inclusion of the latest safety technology and driver aids. On top of this, the Vivaro remains a strong and dependable companion that is guaranteed to pull its weight without hesitation.
