New Vauxhall Vivaro and Renault Trafic break cover

Vauxhall and Renault have taken the wraps off their new medium sized panel vans that will go on sale this summer.

Vauxhall claims the new Vivaro (pictured top), which shares its design with the Renault Trafic, combines the functionality of a light commercial vehicle with the comfort and design flair of a passenger car.

Renault says it has capitalised upon its wealth of experience in the LCV segment to offer a genuine user-friendly van in the new Trafic (pictured bottom) that is modern and comfortable, responding more closely to the needs of customers and actively contributing to the success of their business.

As important as the new design, the big news for both variants is a new Renault-developed 1.6-litre diesel engine available with both single and bi-turbo variants, which should bring improved fuel consumption over the outoing versions, with around 47mpg on the combined cycle.

The vans will be offered with a choice of lengths and roof heights, as well as passenger versions. More information about the range will be made available closer to the vans' summer launch.
