Vauxhall has revealed the new Combo panel van, which will be in showrooms in December.
The new model offers a payload up to 4.4 cubic metres and one tonne, with space for two Euro pallets in the largest version.
Short and long wheelbase versions are available, plus a crew van that can carry five occupants.
A sensor-based load indicator warns the driver if the van is overloaded. Once the engine is switched on, a white LED lights up if the weight exceeds 80% of the permitted payload, keeping the van safe. If the weight is above the limit, an orange signal with an exclamation mark lights up.
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 new generation of infotainment systems offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto via an eight-inch colour touchscreen.
The integrated satnav shows Traffic Messaging Channel updates, ensuring that drivers can always select the best route and avoid traffic.
Heated front seats and steering wheel offer added comfort when the temperature drops.
“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.”
Prices are yet to be announced but 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.
