Vauxhall reveals all-new Combo van
Vauxhall has released first pictures of the latest addition to its multi award-winning van range, the all-new Combo.
Available to order in the autumn with deliveries expected at the end of the year, the Combo is available in a selection of variants, including short wheelbase, long wheelbase and crew van.
It can carry a load volume of up to 4.4m3 and a payload of up to a tonne. Longer items up to 3440mm such as pipes and ladders can be stored safely and securely, thanks to the rear swing doors and FlexCargo load through hatch.
In crew van body style, up to five occupants can be accommodated, while the load is safely stowed behind a partition wall. In addition, the rear bench can be folded down and the partition moved behind the front seats if required.
The Combo will alert the driver if the van is overloaded: first with a dash-mounted white light which turns on at 80 per cent full, and an orange warning light when it’s over capacity.
Other innovations available include a Rear View Camera that acts as a “digital” rear view mirror, while a second camera in the passenger side door mirror ensures that the driver has an additional blind spot detection aid.
The cameras are part of a host of safety features offered to Combo buyers. Other tech includes autonomous emergency braking, lane keeping assist, automatic cruise control, traffic sign recognition, and hill descent control.
“Vauxhall’s all-new Combo raises the bar in the compact van segment,” said Derek Wilson, Vauxhall’s LCV Director.
“Practical, comfortable and packed with all latest driver assistance and connectivity technology, the new Combo is the small van that meets all your business needs.”
The Combo’s sister vehicle, the all-new Combo Life lifestyle vehicle arrives in Vauxhall showrooms in September priced from £20,530 on-the-road.
