The Corsavan is a commercial version of Vauxhall’s popular supermini, meaning it drives exactly like a car and has the same comfort features on board but can cope with loads of up to 571kg in its cargo area with a volume of just under a cubic metre.
Fuel economy on the latest Corsavan is outstanding, with a combined rating of 85.6mpg achieved. And if you run a small business that involves driving and hauling equipment or products, this kind of efficiency could represent a big reduction in your transport costs.
A front-view camera can provide lane-departure alerts as well as read road signs so that you never accidentally slip over the speed limit. Meanwhile, cutting-edge power steering has a special City Mode that makes manoeuvring and parking on busy narrow roads even easier.
A seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Vauxhall’s Intellilink capabilities is available, with Bluetooth connectivity and smartphone compatibility allowing for a range of advanced functions. And older generations of the Corsavan are similarly well equipped for their age.
The Combo is Vauxhall’s light van, with a cargo volume of up to 4.2 cubic metres and a payload capacity of a tonne. Two wheelbase options and a range of customisable add-ons and extras enable buyers to specify their van exactly as they require it.
Electric windows, power steering and central locking all come as standard. There is lots of storage in the cab as well as innovative options for maximising the potential of the cargo area in the rear. Air conditioning and even climate control can be added, while ABS, EPD and ESP are all standard, along with hill-start assist.
The Vivaro panel van has recently been updated and now comes with a sliding door at the side which measures a full metre across, ensuring access to the load area is never an issue. The largest example has 8.6 cubic metres of space in the rear and in total up to 1281kg of cargo or equipment can be carried by this van with ease.
The Doublecab variant ads extra seating for crew and minicab functions, while the Platform Cab version of the Vivaro can be outfitted with different bodies that are suitable for a given role within specialist organisations.
Standard innovations include USB and Bluetooth connectivity and a digital radio, enabling smartphone docking for hands-free calls and messaging. Tablet docking is even possible, which can enhance the features of the van even further.
The Movano puts size, strength and versatility at the top of the agenda, with a 3.5 tonne maximum payload meaning that this van range is a leader in its field.
While it may be a large van, the Movano does not skimp on safety features in any way and comes with a driver airbag as standard as well as security systems such as an immobiliser and remote central locking.
Buyers have the option to add more airbags for the driver and passengers as well as cruise control with speed-limit settings, a digital tachograph and sensors at the rear to help with parking. With efficient and powerful bi-turbo 2.3 CDTi engines, drivers have lots of torque at their disposal, along with impressive overall fuel consumption levels.
Picking up Movano Conversions models means that additional body types are available, with box vans, dropsiders and more on offer from Vauxhall.
