The new Vauxhall Vivaro van aims to combine "a light commercial vehicle with the comfort and design flair of a passenger car" when it goes on sale this summer.
Scheduled to be launched at the Commercial Vehicle show at the end of April, the new Vivaro features new styling and a range of all-new diesel engines. The second-generation van will be built at Vauxhall's plant in Luton.
Vauxhall has given the new Vivaro a larger, more prominent front grille with redesigned front light clusters. A 'blade' crease line runs from the side mirrors to the rear wheel arches – something Vauxhall says is reminiscent of the lines found on its Insignia and Astra GTC models.
Power in the new Vivaro comes from either a turbocharged 1.6-litre CDTi in either 89bhp or 113bhp outputs, or a twin-turbocharged 1.6-litre BiTurbo CDTi with either 118bhp or 138bhp.
The new Vivaro is 216mm longer than its predecessor and is available in two different lengths and heights. Available body styles include panel van, Combi and double cab. Two trim levels are offered, dubbed Vivaro and Sportive.
Also breaking cover at the CV show next month will be the Vivaro's sister car, the third-generation Renault Trafic. Like the Vivaro, the Trafic gets a new corporate style with a larger front grille and Renault badging, and the same range of 1.6-litre turbodiesel engines.
Both vans will go on sale this summer. No official pricing information has yet been announced.
