The third-generation Vivaro will be offered in two lengths (4.95m and 5.3m) and in three body styles including a panel van, double cab for up to six occupants and a platform chassis.
With a maximum cargo capacity of 6.6m3, the new Vivaro has a payload of up to 1,400kg – 200kg more than its predecessor. Maximum trailer load is also higher, at 2,500kg – 500kg more than the outgoing model.
An optional load-through flap under the front passenger seat allows objects up to 4.02m long to be stowed securely in the 5.30m version.
Three trim levels are available: Edition, Sportive and Elite. Standard features on the new LCV include dual side sliding door, driver/passenger airbags and cruise control with speed limiter.
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 level three and blind spot detection.
Engine range information has not yet been released. Prices start from £21,240 plus VAT for the Edition version; the Elite starts from £25,540 plus VAT.
The vehicle will be manufactured in Luton, where investment will increase the plant’s production capacity to 100,000 units per year.
Vauxhall also says an all-electric version of the Vivaro will be launched in 2020.
